Q&A with Alex Mac Neill

By Yellow Door Collective

Posted on 4th December 2019

Reading time: 2 minutes

My name is Alex and I’m currently studying brand building and management at Vega. Although I’m originally from Joburg, I’ve been in Cape Town since 2010. I love surrounding myself with friends and spend most of my free time in nature, at home watching movies and at the occasional music festival. My favourite thing in the world is going for early morning swims at Dalebrook tidal pool in Kalk Bay.

What is your position in the Yellow Door team?

I’m a marketing intern.

What part of your job do you enjoy most?

I enjoy learning new things in a hands-on environment.

What part of your role do you find the most challenging?

Time management and meeting deadlines! I’m a perfectionist and can take 3 hours to do a task that could be done in 20 minutes.

What do you enjoy most about being part of the Yellow Door team?

Everyone is really down to earth and genuine.

What do you do when you’re stuck for inspiration?

Go for a walk outside or do some exercise.

What is your pre-work routine?

Breakfast, coffee and my favourite music at the moment.

If you could be any superhero, who would you be and why?

I don’t really watch superhero movies, but if I could choose a super power I’d want to be able to teleport. I’m not a fan of Cape Town traffic!

What’s your favourite way to spend a weekend?

My ideal weekend consists of going for drinks with friends at night, and spending the days outside – at the beach or hiking.

What music do you like to listen to while working?

It depends on my mood. When I’m feeling stressed I like to listen to something chilled, like the new Milky Chance album. Otherwise I listen to anything from Hip-Hop to Techno.

Introvert or extrovert?

Introverted extrovert. I promise that’s a thing 😉

Cats or dogs?

Dogs. I don’t know what to do with a cat.

Shoes or barefoot?

Seeing as I was just on crutches for having my foot cut by glass – shoes!

What’s your favourite spot in Gardens?

The Raptor Room is a vibe.
