Managing director, Epaton (NoTape)
Which tech figurehead do you admire the most?
It's a name you may not be familiar with but Jeff Prince (the founder of Foundry Networks) is top of my list. Basically he has done it start to finish by being the nicest most humble guy you could ever meet.
What's the biggest challenge facing the industry no-one is talking about yet?
The true cost of cloud, not just financial.
If you could invite three famous people to dinner, who would they be?
Adolf Hitler (I would only have two for dinner after he walked in the door); Michael Jackson (before the surgery); and my grandma (I would just like another chat).
How has 2017 been for you?
What's the most extravagant business lunch you've ever had?
Nobu, the best sushi in the world, and we don't do it often enough.
Which global city best matches your personality?
Las Vegas. Anything you want any time you want it.
What would be your super-hero power?
Teleportation. It takes too long to get to Vegas!
Complete this sentence. The worst thing about our rivals is… their staff don't work for us yet!
What makes you nervous?
People. You never know what they are going to do.
If you could eat one type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Fruit. Better than chocolate.
