What do you love most about your job at Torpedo?
The people. Working in client services means I get the opportunity to work with practically everyone at Torpedo in some capacity. I feel so lucky to work with such a talented, dedicated, and friendly team. They make the job a lot easier through the quality of their work and being so incredibly sound.
And what do you find most challenging?
Working on the Autodesk account, we collaborate with clients across a variety of industries such as manufacturing, media & entertainment, architecture, engineering and construction – so there’s always new information to take on board and apply to the work we do with them – but that’s what also makes it such a great account to work on.
Is there a particular piece of work/project that you’re proud of?
I’m lucky enough to work on the AutoCAD hero imagery project. We’ve just wrapped up the 3rd set of hero images since I’ve worked here – the work that goes into these and the out-put from the creative team is truly incredible. I play a tiny part, but I’m proud just to get to work with the team involved. You can check out the houseboat we created last year here (shameless plug alert).
What did you see yourself doing when you were a kid?
I think I wanted to be radio dj/host. If Torpedo start a pirate radio station, I’ll be there!
If you weren’t a senior account manager, what do you think you’d be?
I fancy myself as a bit of a film critic already, so maybe that. Or perhaps one of those food challenge people?
What made you choose this career path? How did you get to where you are today?
After I graduated Uni, I knew I wanted to work in a creative field, and for a company where I could make an impact. I had a few different jobs and worked for smaller agency prior to here – but had heard about Torpedo through a UX/UI designer I played football with that worked for Torpedo at the time (cheers Garreth Bayliss!) and it sounded great. So, when a position became available a few years later I went for it.
When your OOO is on, what are you likely to be doing?
I spend a lot of time in Malta, so I’ll probably be exploring the island or sat in the shade (due to my ginger complexion) at a bar somewhere.
