Ruth is one of our longest-serving members of the ESM family, an indispensible part of the team who brings creativity, passion and infectious laughter to the office. Previously the owner/operator of a trendy Ponsonby boutique built from the ground up via social media, Ruth and decided to come on board three plus years ago to share her considerable expertise with us and we’re so glad she did! Here’s what she had to say about our hard-hitting staff questionnaire:
What would you be if you could be anything (aside from a social media wizard, of course!)?
As a kid I thought a marine biologist, but I let that dream go once I realised “Aquatic Indiana Jones” isn’t what the job entailed.
Now? I’d love to be a paid travel tester for celebs and the ultra-wealthy, trying out holidays and providing feedback when asked (not an actual job yet, but maybe someday!).
What would your chosen superpower be?
The ability to read minds for sure – much more effective for a bit of casual stalking than trawling Facebook! An on/off switch would be good though, might be a bit intense full time! Eventually it’d lead to world domination of course.
Would you rather battle one horse-sized duck or 100 duck-sized horses?
Give me the giant duck, I’d try and befriend it, strap on a saddle and have a new way to get around – can’t do that with a bunch of tiny horses!
Serious question – pineapple on a pizza, yes or no?
No way, a pineapple lump pizza?
(ed. Chunks of pineapple, not pineapple lumps)
Ohhh, then yes absolutely.
Lastly, what’s your favourite meme?
This one of a cat and Shaquille O’Neal having a good boogie!
