Tell us something most people won't know about you
I walk downstairs backwards while whistling Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin.
What has been your highlight of 2018 so far?
The red one on top of the Shard is probably the highest I've seen this year.
Who would play you in the film of your life?
Purely for being able to capture my emotional maturity and sensitivity, Vinnie Jones.
Which tech firm (other than your own!) do you most admire?
Whoever built the Tardis - awesome!
What is your guiltiest pleasure?
Riding my bike through red lights and up one way streets the wrong way and talking in a French accent if anyone complains.
What is the most irritating tech buzzphrase of 2018?
I'm afraid I am unaware of any 2018 phrases attributable to Buzz Aldrin, tech-related or otherwise.
What would be your first act if you were made Prime Minister?
I would abolish referendums.
What's the biggest untapped opportunity facing the channel?
The fact that there is such a narrow stretch of water between Dover and Calais really lends itself to a high-speed rail link between the two countries. Oh, hang on…
What is your most treasured possession?
My iPhone password.
What do your family think you do all day?
They think I actually work when I get to work. An outdated concept of course. How little they know!
Who has been your mentor in business?
I've not had a mentor but the staff at Bytes are enough to inspire and drive me and the company forward.
