I liked Nicola Applegate, Art Buyer at Winkreative, from her very first email. She used words like “lovely lady” but was still able to keep her messages brief yet informative. The best of both worlds. As our emails progressed her positive nature and her passion for her job shone through. If she wasn’t based in London, England I know we could be friends.
I was over-the-moon excited when she asked me to photograph for an upcoming issue of re:porter, the Porter Airlines in-flight magazine. In every edition they profile an outstanding employee – a nice article about who they are and what they do along with a few portraits.
This time they were featuring Jade Cutinho, supervisor for the cafés in Porter’s lounges at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport. Jade was just as thrilled as I was to be part of the magazine, she glowed when she told me about how much she loved working for Porter, and beamed as she relayed her life story beginning in the Philippines and all the way up to surviving her first winter in Canada. Jade’s beautiful smile can be seen in the May/June issue, Edition 28, of re:porter.
