When did you join the RGS? September 2010
What’s the best thing about the RGS? The Old Building. It’s a magical, evocative place. Also, hearing the boys everywhere.
What excites you most about coming into work each day? Wondering what news/ideas/requests from OGs have arrived in my inbox – no two days are the same!
What’s your life philosophy/motto in life? Yes is usually a better answer than no. Make each day count and find contentment from the little things in life.
If you could change your name to anything, what would it be? Something that doesn’t have more than one l or p – endless potential for misspelling.
What luxury would you have on a desert island? My cello with an orchestra on loop. Or a duvet. Big on comfort.
What animal most reflects your personality? A Labrador – I like people, food and the great outdoors!
What’s your favourite film and why? Anything set in Italy – for the scenery/ancient ruins/escapism vibe. No need to have audio, the view alone makes me happy!
Which actor/actress would you get to play you in a film of your life? Tamsin Greig. Amazing actress whatever role she plays.
What food will you absolutely not, under any circumstances, eat? Tripe, squid/rubbery seafood. I don’t understand why it’s called food.
