What was your first ever job?

I’ve done my fair shift of monotonous factory box packing and table waiting over the years, but my first ad work experience was many miles from this. Literally. I spent a couple of weeks working at Saatchi & Saatchi Dubai, at their office on the beach. It was always going to be pretty hard to turn my back on advertising after that.
