1. What do you do at Perfume Playground (PP) (what do you love about it)?
I do a whole mixed bag of things at PP! Helping Sam design fragrance and branding to its greatest potential is my favourite part. I am fascinated by the healing properties of nature, which is what drew me to PP in the first place because of it's use of scent soul science to create natural fragrance. Exploring and learning all about this further as I help with perfume creation is a whole heap of fun.
2. What do you do when you’re not at PP?
You'll most likely find me roaming around Cornwall Park gazing at the trees and flowers - film camera in hand. Reading about essential oils has also been a recent hobby!
3. Tell me about a time when you were in pure joy?
There is this one time which came to mind, I was hiking in the Waitakere Ranges... after setting up camp- I went for a wander. I stumbled across a gap in the bushes, revealing the most intense sunset I have ever seen. It was scarlet red and brushed with blazing orange. I swore to myself I would never forget this treasure I had witnessed!
4. What do you avoid at all costs?
WASPS. I had a "near death" experience (an over-exaggeration but seemed like it to my 13 year old mind), when a nest of wasps exploded under my foot whilst orienteering on Mt Eden, and I was stung 11 times. Every time I see a wasp nowadays- I seriously freak and embarrass myself.
5. What are you listening to / watching / following that makes you move?
A band called Still Woozy I am really enjoying for their up-tempo, electronic, jazzy tunes. I love taking a walk and feeling energized by their music.
