What does a typical working day look like and where does it happen?
I’m lucky enough to be signed by Blinkink, so I just come into the studio Monday to Friday and I have a little space where they let me work on my projects, even if I’m working on a personal project which is very nice of them.
I come up with my best ideas in the morning. It always changes because life changes but at the moment, this is my process: I have a cold shower, a coffee, then I walk through the park towards the studio, listening to good music that makes me want to dance. This weird combo of things usually puts me in a really good mood and I come up with my best stuff when I’m in an excitable mood.
I used to always work weekends, I’d be constantly sat at a desk trying to force myself to come up with something good. But it was very stressful. It’s only in the last year or so that I’ve realised the importance of having a personal life and enjoying myself. In my opinion, it has made my work a whole lot better.
How collaborative is your role?
As a director I think it’s important to know that you don’t have to do absolutely everything. It’s good to be able to recognise what certain people are good at and bring them together in order to make something much bigger. For me collaboration is very important.
