A touch cultured, well-travelled and a lover of good food, meet Claire.

September 19, 2018

If a person could be described as a melting pot of world travel, culture, history and food, our Claire would be it – with a dash of pop culture thrown in.  Having been at Nexis for the past two and half years, Claire is Executive Assistance to Domenic Stramandinoli. She’s a cultured one our Claire, but she’s straight up, believing a good, firm handshake always leaves a positive impression. Find out more about Claire:

Where is your favourite place in the world? Canakkale, Turkey – The people are so kind, such an incredible culture and the food was amazing!

What’s the last book you read? A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson

What’s your favourite movie? Howl’s Moving Castle

What’s the best meal you’ve ever had? It was when we were in Istanbul, Turkey. We saw the waiter advertising the menu on the street and everything looked delicious. We asked to go to the restaurant and he escorted us to this tiny elevator that took us to the restaurant that was on the roof of a carpet store overlooking the Blue Mosque. The waiter brought out a sealed clay pot called a ‘Testi Kebap’. He broke the clay pot with a knife and poured the delicious lamb and vegetable onto the plate. It was amazing!

If you could visit anywhere in the world you’ve never been, where would you go? Galapagos Islands – There’s such an incredible diversity between the same species on different islands based on evolutionary survival, and I love Galapagos Tortoises.

Which four individuals, living or dead, would you like to eat dinner with the most? Charles Darwin, Sir Ian McKellen, Freddie Mercury, Marie Curie.

What is your favourite family tradition? Making Fruit Mince Pies with my Nan every Christmas
