1. What is your role at 93digital?

Project Manager

2. What does an average day for you look like?

First thing when I get into the office I spend some time catching up on any emails before checking in on any impending deadlines the team may be facing. As a new starter, I am still getting used to the various systems used at 93digital so I have been spending some time exploring and getting to grips with them.

3. What’s the most challenging part of your job?

Running several projects at one time is like juggling, if you take the eye off the ball for even a second it can all fall down. That and managing clients expectations are always the biggest challenges.

4. Any advice for those who want to do what you do?

Find the best way to organise your projects for you. This takes time and you’re likely to try lots of methods unsuccessfully until you settle on one. Being a PM requires you to constantly know what is going on in every project, who is doing the work and when it will be done. I always carry around my planner that is basically my PM bible(!!!) and contains all of my projects deliverables who’s working on them and my own to-do list!

5. What future design and/or technology developments in the industry are you excited about?

I am excited to see how advances in AI will impact web browsing. It’s still a relatively niche area but I’m sure in a few years time it will be so heavily integrated into our lives that websites will have to adapt and I look forward to seeing how that will look.

6. What are your passions/hobbies/interests?

I love interior design, you can often find me lost in the homeware aisle on weekends or browsing Instagram for the latest trends.

Other than that I have recently started learning Spanish again after doing it as part of my university course, and I like spending time at the gym.

7. What’s your favourite thing to read in print / online?

Anything pop-culture! It’s a guilty pleasure and one I’m always teased for.

I also love reading crime thrillers and non-fiction psychological books when I get the time.

I’m currently reading ‘Blitzed’ which explores the use of drugs in Germany in the Second World War.

8. Tell us a random fact about you…

I can touch my nose with my tongue
