What is your morning ritual to help get the day started?
I know you may expect something inspirational like a gastronomic breakfast, a unique meditation, an amalgam of Hatha and Vinyasa yoga… sorry to spoil the expectations, but it is as ordinary as an alarm ringing and me trying to do my makeup half asleep.
What is it about Hasbro that gets you up in the morning?
Must be the toys and games… I once read that inside every adult there's still a child that lingers, I guess mine is super-sized.
And the Hasbro teams. They are all great, an amazing bunch of people. In every market visit, I just fall in love with the teams.
Then there is the gutenberg team, my team, the people I spend every day with. If I was trying to describe the ideal team, I would just wish to work with people like them.
And what is your favourite Hasbro brand?
It’s not a secret, I have had a soft spot for My Little Pony since I was 5, almost 20 years now (wink wink).
As a child what did you want to be when you grew up?
I was changing my mind every so often, depending on what I read or watched on TV. A vet, a scientist, a journalist and the list goes on…
The most important thing is that now, regardless of what I was dreaming as a kid, I have a job that I love, enjoy and want to be good at every day...
What has been your favourite project you have worked on?
It’s hard to pinpoint one. It has been a very interesting and extremely productive year.
Travelling around the markets to meet the teams, bringing new markets on board and transferring projects to our new platform with exciting tools. This new platform has helped to transform the way we are working, giving us the opportunity to offer a bigger range of deliverables along with more exibility and further savings for our clients.
What advice would you give to newcomers trying to break into the industry?
Dream big, stay humble. And never give up.
Where is your favourite place in the world?
No doubt it’s Greece! It’s the food, the people, the beaches, the sun. Everything!
If you could be a superhero for the day who would you be?
Captain Marvel. Wouldn’t that be cool to be able to shoot energy blasts from your hands?
What quote do you live by?
I have two…
An inspirational one. ‘Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.’
And a practical one. ‘In case of doubt, overdress.’
