What I enjoy most about working at Space & Time…
Next to really liking to work in PPC, my lovely colleagues are the main reason I enjoy working at S&T. They are a great, talented and professional bunch of people with everyone bringing something else to the mix.

Away from the office you can find me…
These days you can find me in one of the many parks across Manchester (preferably with a playground and nice Cafe nearby) or in a beer garden if the Manchester weather allows it. Running and travelling are also two things I enjoy.

Favourite food…
Pasta in all shapes and varieties – I could eat it every day! I also really love spinach. And cheese.

Favourite song…
There are so many songs that have made a lasting impression but if I have to choose one I’ll go for Arcade Fire’s ‘Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)’. I think I’ll probably still listen to this one when I’m old and grey.

Favourite film…
I love all films by the Turkish-German film maker Fatih Akin, especially Solino and Head-On. I also really like The Departed.

Favourite ever ad campaign…
I don’t think this qualifies as “ever” but some of the ‘Please not them’ National Lottery ads have made me chuckle. The concept is simple (celebrities taking the mickey out of themselves) but it works for me.

Favourite brand…
Probably a bit of a student-y thing to say but I really think IKEA is a great Brand. I like their designs and that by making their products affordable it is a Brand for the many (like they say themselves). I also like that when you’re done shopping you can now enjoy vegan vegetable balls and on your way out buy a few packets of Roesti which you can’t buy in UK supermarkets.

Favourite tech/gadget…
I’ve become quite attached to my phone lately. It lets me connect with the outside world while looking after my kids. My eldest tells me off when I try to open my laptop these days, so being able to sneakily read the news or have a glance at what’s happening on Facebook, is a big plus.
