Meet June, L&J Performance Media Manager
Tell us about your journey with Larsson & Jennings so far. What do you enjoy most about the role?
L&J was a brand that I admired from afar from the brand’s early days in Australia, around 2015. I loved how the classic aesthetic disrupted the watch style market and how the brand stuck to its dedication to quality even amongst the saturation.
When I moved to London, I did not expect to have a chance to work with the brand. I knew it was inspired by both Stockholm & London – but I had no idea it was right here! So I was pretty excited to join the team to take care of the Performance Media. Being able to explore different ways to reach (and persuade) L&J’s audience has been a creative and fun experience.
Who are you when you’re not in the studio?
I am an avid traveller. I like to explore the trails of Europe a lot because I’m Aussie - it’s in my blood. But I also LOVE my work – so I’m actually working on being able to help more businesses and brands with Digital Advertising through making free content and some training courses. You know, just some side hustling.
In what way does your watch mean for you?
This timepiece actually represents for me – a commitment to maintaining a higher energy. When I put it on in the morning, it’s what reminds me that we only have so much time in the day. This truly make me just want to make the most out of it.
Three words that best describe your style?
Bold. Not too crazy, but I do love block bright colours sometimes paired with simple basics.
Tomboyish. I like to be comfy and you never know when you might need to break out into dance.
Versatile for sure though, I can wear a dress and pop on some heels when I need to. I just can’t really walk in them.
What would you do if you had a million pounds?
First, I’d reinvest that to make 100 million through businesses, the stock market, you name it! And then I’d do all the responsible sh*t, like take care of my family and also give loads back to charity – I’d even make my own foundation. But then I would buy technology science lab that could make a real life transformer that could fly me to any travel destination I so desire and take my friends with me.
Best movie of all time?
“Pursuit of Happiness” – hands down. LOVE Will Smith. Cry every time. Inspired every time. “Hey. Don't ever let somebody tell you... You can't do something. Not even me.” – Insert crying emoji here
What is the last thing you watched on YouTube?
Behind the scenes of Game of Thrones, Season 8 Episode 3 – The Battle of Winterfell – DUH! Respect to Lady Mormont!
The most exciting moment in your life?
Watching the sunrise of a new year over a volcano crater lake in Guatemala whilst getting robbed by banditos all while very intoxicated. – Exciting and terrifying all at the same time.
What mantra do you live by?
I added, “Work Hard, Hustle Harder” to my Instagram @juneaye and I’ve never really swayed away from that. I believe that working hard and playing just as hard allows for great experiences and growth all while having the best time.
Minimalism or maximalism?
Minimalism. I have moved hemispheres before – I’ve learned you don’t need too much to live a good way.
Your guilty pleasure?
Define guilty. Because I don’t feel that guilty when I do this – but I just really enjoy a good beer. And thanks to my immunity to hangovers, I just love having beers when I’m happy or when I’m down or if I am working or travelling – so a lot of the time. It seems I should feel guilty because too much alcohol is bad for you. Drink responsibly, kids.
