Mandatory Pet Tax: This is Juno. She’s the result of an impulse decision during a breakup, has a taste for scrambled eggs, and, as a result of the patches above her eyes, looks perpetually perplexed.
So, you’re from the UK. Anything you miss about it?
EU membership *sobs*
What would your call your own personally brewed beer brand?
Opblaas Schildpad. Just rolls off the tongue, right?
What’s the weirdest thing we’d find in your desk drawers?
An unusually large amount of Almonds. Like, an endless supply.
If you could switch roles with another Usabilla employee for the day, who would it be and why?
Our Scrum Master, Tom. With the intention of unveiling what it is his job actually entails.
Have you ever been on TV?
No, but I did audition to play a zombie extra in World War Z. I didn’t get a callback but I kinda take it as a compliment.
Favorite place you’ve ever been?
I have this fondness for train stations and airports, I think it’s their in-between nature and sense of adventure. In terms of my favorite place, though, I’d have to say Wadi Rum in Jordan. Jordan is such a remarkable country – the people there are so welcoming and camping under the stars with a group of Bedouins in a completely secluded spot in the desert is something I won’t forget in a hurry.
Do you have a good celebrity encounter story?
I used to work as a waitress at Old Trafford in Manchester and David Beckham’s Dad was one of my regular customers. One time he brought in David’s shirt after a game and let me touch it, does that count?
If you weren’t spending time on this interview, what procrastination site would be open in your browser tabs? (I won’t tell, I swear.)
Vice is my weakness. Wait, is that why they named it Vice? Genius.
