What is usually playing in your headphones?
This is a loaded question. On any given day I could be listening to anything as I don’t really have a favourite genre, and what I listen to is completely based on my moods. The main staples right now have to be J. Cole, Leon Bridges, Lee Moses, Jacob Banks, Otis Redding, and Joey Purp. I also love soundtracks, so those are often playing—Big Little Lies and Insecure both have great ones. The only genre I say no to is country, it’s not my jam.
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A lawyer. Probably a boring thing for a child to want to be, but I’ve always loved having logical reasons as to why I should win the argument and proving my point—maybe a little bit too much as a child. I’m sure my parents didn’t like me refusing to ever take no as a final answer, but it worked out in my favour. Any documentary or movie/show that is based around court proceedings has my name written all over it.
What are you happiest doing, when you are not working?
Cooking with a glass of red wine and good music playing. Dedicating time to executing a new and exciting recipe with fresh ingredients from a local market will always put me in the best mood. Good food generally plays a big role in my daily happiness.
What is your hidden talent?
Not sure if it’s hidden, but I was a competitive dancer for 17 years.
What is one of your favourite quotes?
Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right. — Henry Ford
