What is your role at tlc?

I’m a Senior Lettings Consultant.

What is your background?

I was born and raised in the vibrant London Borough of Hackney and I am of Colombian heritage. In summer 2016, I was given the opportunity to join tlc for work experience and I have been a member of the team ever since! During my time at university, I worked at tlc on a part-time basis which, along with my studies in sociology and politics, fuelled my passion for housing and property.

What values drive you?

Honesty, fairness and altruism.

What are your objectives for tlc over the next 12 months?

Become ARLA qualified and continue to help people find their dream flats.

What do you enjoy doing outside of the office?

I enjoy going to gigs, visiting museums and reading.

What is your favourite song?

My favourite song is ‘Where Am I’ by the legendary post-punk band Title Fight.

What is one thing that might surprise people about you?

I used to have very… very long hair.

If you could be any animal, what would you be?

A good ol’ plant-based tortoise. Slow and steady wins the race!

What are three things on your bucket list?

  1. Travel across South America; an 8,000-mile motorcycle trip from the Andes to the Amazon

  2. Learn a third language (I would love to speak French)

  3. Write a sociological non-fiction book
