When did you join iHASCO?

May 2023. I started just shy of 3 months ago at time of writing!

What do you do there?

I'm a software engineer in the product team. We cover quite a broad range of tech so it's exciting to get stuck in!

What did you want to do when you were at school?

I wanted to be a music producer, which I did (and still do!) for almost 20 years

What do you get up to when you’re not at iHASCO?

coding, virtual reality, yoga, cycling, board games, guitar, piano, running, twitch streaming, listening to podcasts and sometimes I find time to sleep!

Where in the world would you most like to go?

Mexico, again! Thailand, Iceland, would love to go back to Barcelona again too.

What’s your favourite food?

Basically anything except seafood and overly-pretentious "fine-dining" type stuff. Right now I'm thinking about proper Mexican street food tacos, so I'll go with that as my favourite!

Tell us something we don’t know about you…

I have a strong sense of rhythm but cannot dance to save my life.

Favourite book or movie?

Books: A Scanner Darkly by Philip K Dick (although the Richard Linklater film is also great), or Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. FIlms: Rounders (1998) - Matt Damon, Edward Norton, John Malkovich, Martin Landau and John Turturro in a poker movie. love it
