What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learnt on the job?

Value your friends, for all the thousands of people I’ve met, finding a connection is rare.

What was the most exciting thing that happened on your last job?

My job took me to Tallinn, Estonia – I met some really lovely people from all over Europe on the production.
