Elite Agent - - EDITOR'S LETTER -

How would you de­scribe your re­la­tion­ship with tech? Def­i­nitely a con­stant bat­tle for bal­ance! I try to be 100 per cent present in all as­pects of my life, so I ac­tively try not to check or be on my phone when it's not needed. How­ever, I am very acutely aware that my busi­ness is tech­nol­ogy based so in some ways I do need to be present and aware at all times.

PC or Mac? Mac all the way! The de­sign as­pects and edit­ing soft­ware that I use on my mac by far out­per­forms any­thing I have ever had on a PC. Plus once you go Mac you can't go back!

iPhone or An­droid? iPhone. The sim­plic­ity and func­tion­al­ity of an iPhone have al­ways drawn me to them, plus the fact that I can so eas­ily sync with my lap­top makes the de­ci­sion easy.

Three apps you can't live with­out? Health I am al­ways try­ing to make sure I am keep­ing my fit­ness up and step­ping away from the com­puter to make sure I am av­er­ag­ing 10,000 - 15,000 steps per day Cam­era I am con­stantly snap­ping pics of my son Email Al­ways stay­ing con­nected and try­ing to keep on top of my emails when on the go is some­thing I strive to­wards.

What piece of fu­ture tech are you most look­ing for­ward to? I love the idea of faster flights around the world, maybe see­ing the planes go up into or­bit for a few mo­ments to al­low a Syd­ney to Lon­don flight time to de­crease to a cou­ple of hours! It would just open up the world and al­low us to visit fam­ily and friends more reg­u­larly!
