Managing director, Metaphor IT
Which tech figurehead do you admire the most?
I'll go For Elon Musk. I love the ambition he has; build electric cars without compromising performance, Hyperloop, colonise Mars! He isn't phased by how hard (or near impossible) something might be.
What's the biggest challenge facing the industry no-one is talking about yet?
People are talking about AI and robots but I'm not sure people yet understand how big this is for both our industry and society as a whole. Have a read of this: https://waitbutwhy.com/2015/01/artificial-intelligence-revolution-1.html
If you could invite three famous people to dinner, who would they be?
Albert Einstein, Neil Armstrong and Christopher Columbus. I'm sure they would have some unbelievable stories to share.
How has 2017 been for you?
Great! The work/life balance is in a nice place following starting a business, building a house and growing my family the year before.
What's the most extravagant business lunch you've ever had?
I'm vegetarian, so I leave the posh lunches to others!
Which global city best matches your personality?
London - fast-paced and always changing.
What would be your super-hero power?
I'd love to be able to fly - fast. That would be awesome.
Complete this sentence. The worst thing about our rivals is… they say they can do something when they can't. It doesn't help anyone.
What makes you nervous?
Brexit, to some degree. Not necessarily the final outcome but how we get there.
If you could eat one type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Pizza - no doubt about that.
