DeskLodger of the Month Emma Gorton-Ellicott from DeskLodge
Meet Emma, who is a DeskLodge Host and writes our blogs. Emma is also our resident fashionista, a blogger and a musician to name a few things!
What do you do at DeskLodge? I am one of the DeskLodge Hosts and have slowly got more involved with building our social media presence, promoting all of our events, spaces and the lovely DeskLodgers. I also write many of the blog posts and the monthly newsletter. I’m the annoying one following you around taking photos of what you are doing! As a host, I tour DeskLodge newbies, help run the main reception, fill the coffee machine and generally hang out making sure everything is amazing for all of our DeskLodgers.
How long have you worked at DeskLodge? I’ve been at DeskLodge since November 2016
What's your favourite thing about your job? I love touring newbies around DeskLodge for their first time and seeing their faces light up as they wonder round our unique space, it's exciting for them and I like the element of surprise. I also enjoy the DeskLodge socials and have made some great friends here.
What's your favourite thing about DeskLodge? I love meeting so many amazing people each week and being able to work in such a fun environment, I am anti-corporate so this suits me just fine. The DeskLodge Team are a unique bunch and that reflects DeskLodge and what we stand for.
What do you like to do in your spare time? Oh my goodness! I really like to cram stuff into my life! I work part-time at DeskLodge as I am also the Fashion Editor at Bristol 24/7 magazine, I write a fashion blog called No Debutante, I am a DJ at my club night Bang - which has been running in Bristol for 15 years, I am a singer/songwriter in the band Mono Dots, I am a fashion designer and have a label in progress named Fruit Salad AND I have three kids. So, not much on really….
Where is your favourite place outside of Desklodge? I love to camp and recently we (me and the fam) have been going to The Gower a lot so we can go bodyboarding too. It’s a great escapism. If I can’t go camping and bodyboarding, I hide (from the fam) in my loft room with all the windows open for some peace and quiet, but they usually find me.
Thanks Emma, enjoy some camping and peace and quite in the wild! x
