What is your biggest career achievement to date?

Moving to Berlin. I didn’t have a job offer, I just knew I wanted to work in the bustling tech scene there. So I bought a plane ticket and I sent a tweet to a chief executive of a startup I wanted to work for and went for it.

What one piece of advice would you offer someone entering marketing today?

I’d recommend having a side line in something else in your spare time. Sometimes it’s good to be creative without a brief. I would find that just as interesting or impressive as someone who’s interned at a big name brand or agency.
