Emma has been working in digital since 2001, beginning her career as a web designer. Over the years she has been a front-end developer, business analyst, traffic manager, production manager, product owner and producer. She describes her approach as "hands-on project manager" or "herder of cats". She thrives when working with passionate developers and clients, endeavouring to make all projects fun for everyone involved.
Emma taught herself HTML when she was 13 because she knew she wanted to build websites. By 21, she was leading a web design team. Realising that she's "not good with the hard-split between work and personal life" she says she needs to feel like her workmates are her family.
When she's not herding cats at work, she likes hanging out with her own cat at home, doing paint-by-numbers, and tumbling the patriarchy.
