WHAT’S YOUR OFFICIAL JOB TITLE?
I’m a Senior Support Engineer.
WHERE DO YOU LIVE?
I have lived in Chingford, East London for nearly 30 years now.
DESCRIBE YOUR ROLE WITHIN THE COMPANY.
I am part of the service desk team that provides third-line support to our clients, dealing with complex and business critical issues. I also support the Junior Engineers with my old-man experience 🙂
WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?
I’m very lucky to be working with such a great team of fun, knowledgeable and hard working individuals.
WHAT JOB WOULD YOU DO IF YOU DIDN’T WORK IN IT SUPPORT?
I always wanted to be a writer, particularly of science fiction or fantasy. I find a great deal of enjoyment out of fleshing out a totally fictional world and making it as deep and as believable as possible. Unfortunately, I am somewhat of a perfectionist in this regards and never consider my writing to be “good to go.” Or perhaps I’m just a coward!
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE FILM?
That’s tough, as I love a lot of films and what would be top may simply be determined by what mood I’m in. If I had to make a choice, I guess it would have to be Star Wars (the original, of course), as I never tire of it and it had a massive impact on my childhood and development.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE FOOD?
A choice between a good fillet steak or mother’s home-made meatballs.
WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES OR INTERESTS OUTSIDE OF WORK?
Would playing with computers be too obvious? I mentioned writing already. Does beer count as a hobby? Watching TV shows and movies and then endlessly discussing them afterwards? Yes, I am a nerd!
WHAT SONG BEST DESCRIBES YOU?
Now that’s not something I’ve ever stopped to consider before. I guess “God Only Knows,” would be appropriate, because I sure don’t!
TEA OR COFFEE?
Can’t stand either, I’m afraid. I hate tea less than coffee, though.
IF YOU COULD TAKE ONE ITEM TO A DESERT ISLAND, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
WHAT IS YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE?
Bad 80’s action movies. Segal, Van Damme, Schwarzenegger. So many terrible films, but somehow so entertaining.
FINALLY, WHICH SUPER POWER WOULD YOU CHOOSE?
Mind-control. It makes world domination so much easier.
