Chief digital officer, RedPixie
Which tech figurehead do you admire the most?
Bill Gates. Not only has his passion for tech inspired me, but he has used his success for a much greater good, to support people less fortunate than himself.
What's the biggest challenge facing the industry no-one is talking about yet?
With the evolution of the cloud and the centralisation of data, I can see a large breach of data beyond just passwords in the next year.
If you could invite three famous people to dinner, who would they be?
Jim Morrison, Steve Jobs and Joan Miró.
How has 2017 been for you?
Well, you've covered most of it in CRN but to summarise it's been romantic, hectic and exciting all in the same breath.
What's the most extravagant business lunch you've ever had?
I once took a client to a restaurant for lunch in Aldwych. They claimed to be wine connoisseurs so I let them choose the wine. Three bottles later I concurred that they had chosen a fabulous wine - however, when I received the bill I was shocked to see it was £800 per bottle!
Which global city best matches your personality?
Tel Aviv is one of my favourite cities. It's fast-paced, technical, full of food and lots of culture.
What would be your super-hero power?
I was thinking mind-reading but you knew that already, right?
Complete this sentence. The worst thing about our rivals is…not enough of them know the value of partnering with us.
What makes you nervous?
Being late for an appointment or event. Airports is where I am worst.
If you could eat one type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Is peanut butter a food? Failing that, watermelon.
