What is the best part of working at Zambuni?

 The best part of working at Zambuni is the whole-hearted way we engage with our brands on a daily basis.  Whether it is standing on the peg awestruck by a brilliant day in the field, styling a fashion story with the most luxurious cashmere and leather, or deep in passionate conversation with an editor by phone in our Mayfair office, we are deeply rooted in the lifestyle we communicate to our audiences.  Born and raised in New York, navigating the city streets is a familiar feeling, but have more recently felt in my element covered in mud or waist deep in a stream!

 Which piece of work at Zambuni are you most proud of to date?

Two years ago I worked on an exciting campaign with Simon Davis, Head Chef at The Yew Tree, Highclere. On the 12th August, Simon rang in the shooting season with a Grouse Run, a popular tradition whereby chef race from the moors to their kitchens in an effort to serve the freshest grouse in the country.  Press who featured the Yew Tree dinner included Shooting Gazette (two editors at different pubs argued over Twitter as to who was served their grouse first) Country Life, BBC Good Food, The Arbuturian, Berkshire Life and even 2Forks who documented the run over their Viber channel. An exciting adventure with strong social media and digital engagement culminating in an intimate yet momentous event created a campaign I was most proud of. It was so successful we did it again last year, featuring in Bloomberg, The Gentleman’s Journal and Bentley Magazine among others, and we are planning for it this year as well!

Which brand would be your dream client and why?

As an avid traveller constantly seeking adventure, I visited Africa last October to go tigerfishing on the Zambezi.  I would love to represent a luxury safari lodge that offers fishing, safari and exploration as well as excellent hospitality so guests may best embrace this incredible culture.

If you could pick one event you would like to be involved with, what would it be?

I am fascinated by the Alaskan Iditerod Race, where mushers race sled dogs over 1000 miles of Alaskan terrain.  There are few opportunities to see nature like this and the tradition is utterly unique.

What is the best part of working at Zambuni?

Undoubtedly the fantastic team at Zambuni and the incredible variety of clients we work with. No day is ever the same and I wouldn’t wish for it any other way. Whether a day in our perfectly situated Mayfair office or meetings at some of our clients luxurious shops or restaurants there is always something exciting to be working on.

Which piece of work at Zambuni are you most proud of to date?

I couldn’t choose between the Boisdale Music Awards and their New Orleans Mardi Gras Festival. I’ve been lucky enough to spend evenings celebrating legendary music from artists such as Maxi Priest, Jools Holland and Imelda May plus indulge in fantastic food by New Orleans chef Dickie Brennan. Working on these events has been immensely rewarding and of course incredibly exciting.

Which brand would be your dream client and why?

I would love to work with a new equestrian clothing brand, having spent a huge amount of my time eventing and engaging with exciting luxury equestrian brands. It would be great to work with a brand from the very start and help them grow into the successful and leading brand I have no doubt we could help them become.

What is the best part of working at Zambuni?

The best part of working with Zambuni has undoubtedly been the variety of stimulating projects we deal with on a daily basis. As someone incredibly fond of being outdoors I was dubious about being stuck behind a desk for the majority of my day. In reality, the time I actually spend behind a desk flies by whilst a lot of my week involves meetings, trips to luxury shopping or dining destinations for event planning and photography or afternoons fishing on idyllic riverbanks with our clients! No two days are the same and I’m loving that.

Which piece of work at Zambuni are you most proud of to date?

So far, the event which has stood out the most for me would probably be Boisdale’s Balvenie Shooting Cup. Acclaimed chefs gathered for a morning of shooting before an impressive four course lunch back at Boisdale of Belgravia which helped raise awareness for a campaign supporting the field to fork lifestyle. The event ran smoothly and it was immensely satisfying to see everyone enjoying themselves. It was also my first opportunity to meet many of the press I interact with on a daily basis and I thoroughly enjoyed the chance to grow these relationships.

Which brand would be your dream client and why?

I was lucky enough to grow up in an environment surrounded by wildlife and nature and I have always felt great awe for the areas of our planet that remain largely untouched by humanity. As a result of this I have fawned over every wildlife documentary I’ve laid eyes on and would struggle to pick my jaw off of the floor if we were ever able to work alongside those who contribute to the likes of Planet Earth or the National Geographic.
