Holyrood PR, Photography, Meet the Team Blog
  1. What is your background?
    I grew up in Inverness in the north of Scotland. I made the move to the capital to study journalism at Edinburgh’s Napier University back in 2016 and graduated in 2020

2. What do you like to do in your spare time?
I like reading into men’s fashion and streetwear so I spend a lot of time looking at things I can’t afford! I also enjoy running, rugby and other forms of keeping fit. Alongside that, I love exploring new pubs around Edinburgh with friends and dreaming of holiday destinations.

3. What is your favourite book?
I’m a big fan of autobiographies so probably ‘Shoe Dog’ by Phil Knight, the founder of Nike.

4. What hobby would you love to get into?
I’ve tried and failed to learn French a number of times but it’s something I’d eventually like to tie down. That being said, my answer to this changes every week…

5. What made you decide to go into PR?
I’ve always wanted to do something where I could communicate with people. That paired with the opportunity to be creative is really exciting to me. After some marketing, journalism and social media experience I realised that PR combined a lot of the areas I enjoy working in.

6. What is your favourite thing about working at Holyrood PR so far?
I think the scope and variety of our clients is up there with my favourite things right now – the opportunity to dip my toe into different industries is brilliant!

7. What is one professional skill you are currently working on?
Since lockdown I’ve been trying to improve my digital skills, mainly on platforms like Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop. As well as that, I’m trying to work on adapting my writing skills to suit PR that bit better.

8. What is your guilty pleasure?
I have far too many of these. Lily Allen, Reality TV and Crocs all fall into this category.

9. What is your favourite meal?
I seriously enjoy a good plate of Carbonara, it just can’t be beaten. Scotch Eggs also play a vital role in my diet.

10. What is one of your favourite memories in the past year?
I took it for granted at the time, but I really enjoyed spending time at home during the pandemic. Until then, it had been years since I had regular time with my family. I’ve also really enjoyed my busy first week at Holyrood PR.
