"From being a bit of an underachiever in a suburban town, the Goldsmiths experience told me I could do something more – and I’m forever grateful. The best advice I can give to someone thinking of going into the same business? Be a cultural sponge, soak it all up, and remember that passion and excitement are just as important as focus and discipline. I just grew up at Goldsmiths, I blossomed at the place. I did a ‘life course’ and it’s the reason I’ve got to where I am today."
