What I enjoy most about working at Fonemedia

For me, it’s nice to come to work as I’ve had the luxury of being able to choose the right people to work with. It’s like another family that I see most days and that’s a really good thing. And I also like the freedom that comes with being here – I’ve worked for businesses where the structure and politics were counter-productive and that’s never really been something I have engaged with.

Outside of the office, you will find me…

With the family. My family is the most important thing to me and spending as much quality time with them is the thing I like to do. Other than that, I have been known to have a pint or two, play golf badly and generally get myself into bother.

Food and drink of choice

You can’t beat a good steak pie (with shortcrust pastry), home-cooked chips and a large dollop of gravy. All washed down with a beer.
