How did you become a Farmer?

Started as a runner straight out of University back in 2006. Mark Wynter interviewed me and had a highly interesting wardrobe choice...

 

What is the best part of your job?

Being creative every day is a bonus, but mostly I enjoy the peaceful quiet of sitting in the dark making things look nice before going home and getting screamed at and climbed on by my two young kids.

 

What have you missed most in Lockdown?

The awesome sandwich shop around the corner. Oh and people and stuff...

 

What’s the one thing that most people do not know about you?

I once chopped a mushroom perfectly in half using nothing but a tea towel.

 

What’s the last thing that made you smile?

Watching my 1-year-old daughter walk into a cupboard door and getting angry at the said door.

 

The funniest thing that’s happened to you at the Farm?

Finding a member of staff facedown on the floor in a grading suite the morning after a Christmas party with a slice of bread stuck to his face.

 

How do you unwind and de-stress after a busy day?

Go home.

 

What three words best describe you?

Synchronized swimming legend.

 

Your favourite farm animal?

To eat or look at?
