Five minutes with…
Who inspires you?
Got to be Elon Musk. He just takes the impossible and turns it completely upside down. Just when you think that conquering space and electric cars must be hard enough, he decides to create the Hyperloop. Oh, I think Christopher Nolan is an absolute genius too.
What’s your favourite meal?
I’ve got a real thing for fish tacos at the moment. I’ve just come back from San Diego and the quality of seafood there was outstanding.
What was your dream job when you were a child?
I literally had no idea what I wanted to do when I was a kid. I think I wanted to be a chef at one point, but I’ve met a lot of chefs since and hats off to them – the hours are crazy!
What makes you happy?
Travelling with my wife. We like to take road trips and visit as many different places as possible.
That, and eating.
What’s the last book you read?
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. Once I heard that Spielberg was adapting it into a film I had to read it! It was really entertaining. Right down my street.
What’s your favourite fragrance?
I tend to wear Mr Burberry by Burberry or Hugo Boss Bottled.
What’s your favourite piece of tech?
Got to be my Macbook Pro. I take it everywhere with me!
Describe yourself in five words?
Creative. Organised. Loving. Geeky and Laid-back.
