What’s your day job?
In 2014 I was appointed Editor of Houzz.co.uk and given the incredible opportunity of setting up the first ever Houzz UK editorial team. I feel very lucky to be part of the Houzz family and to work with a wonderful team of writers, photographers and design professionals in the UK. Houzz now has a global audience of 35 million unique visitors every single month (and growing) so I am thrilled to be part of such an exciting company.
