Vice president and general manager, Dell UK and Ireland, Channel
Which tech figurehead do you admire the most?
It goes without saying - it has to be Michael Dell! His vision and understanding of our industry is second to none. What he has achieved with Dell Technologies will shape our industry - from the edge to the core to the cloud.
If you could invite three famous people to dinner, who would they be?
Sir Winston Churchill, for his one liners and leadership skills; Margaret Thatcher - the Iron Lady and her sheer tenacity; and Lord Nelson - strategy and tactics.
How has 2017 been for you?
A whirlwind of change - new company, new partner programme, new team and new opportunities.
What's the most extravagant business lunch you've ever had?
I once had a lunch with a company where the executive didn't like the size of the bubbles in the champagne and kept sending them back until the bubbles met his stringent criteria. They have to be uniform, apparently.
Which global city best matches your personality?
I love Austin - hard working, tech savvy, entrepreneurial and great fun when you let your hair down.
What would be your super-hero power?
I want to be like Sabrina off Bewitched - wiggle my nose and the house is tidy.
What makes you nervous?
Wasps. I hate them. They have no point or purpose and they sting for fun.
If you could eat one type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
