How did it feel being named in Drapers’ 30 under 30?
It was a really nice surprise, and a great honour. I was totally flattered by it.
What has happened in your career since then?
Since being featured in Drapers I started my new job at Nike. I’ve just had my year anniversary, and it’s been a jam-packed, completely manic and utterly brilliant year. It’s a fantastic company, and I love working there.
