What gets you out of bed on a Monday morning?
Normally my six year old son, luckily I have great fun doing what I do so getting up to do a job that I love is easy!
What do you consider to be your greatest achievement?
I’m still young so haven’t had many major achievements. It was great to be chosen by Small Business Saturday and represent small businesses at Downing Street. Being picked as an Insider Wales Rising Star and Wales Online’s 35 under 35 was awesome too!
Tea or Coffee?
What is the one thing you would tell your 16 year old self?
Take your time before jumping into things, I used to be quite impatient and have learnt along the way to plan well before taking the leap.
How do you like to spend your spare time?
Watching plenty of rugby, I support Aberavon RFC and the Ospreys. With the nature of my job, early starts, late finishes and weekend work are common so I try and spend as much time as I can with my family.
What is your favourite thing about running your own business?
The excitement, trying to take it the next level, meeting awesome people and helping to tell their stories through film. Live events are also good fun too!
What’s one quality you think an entrepreneur needs to possess?
Passion, you need to love what you do and get excited by it, otherwise, there’s no point!
Where do you draw your inspiration from?
When I can, I try to take a few days off to switch off from the day-to-day stuff and take a step back and think, that’s normally when I get my best ideas.
What are your Top Tips for a winning business pitch?
I know everybody says it but do your homework. Research as much as you can about the company and people that you’re pitching to. If you have a chance to send in questions beforehand, use the opportunity to make sure you’re 100% on the brief.
What’s your favourite TV show/podcast and why?
It’s got to be my all time favourite, Only Fools and Horses as I’ve always wanted to be a bit of Del Boy.
Big night out or quite night in?
Quiet night in
