How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
1.  Having
2.  A
3.  Go

 

Tell us something very few people would know about you?
I’ve got a soft spot for all things Disney.  The soundtracks, the plots, the dialogue, what more do you want from a film?

 

Walt definitely knew what was up.

 

Favourite country?
Tough question, at the moment I’d have to say Spain.  I’m a big fan of the Spanish vibe.  They’re passionate people and are always up for a laugh.  I’ve never been there but if their food is anything to go by I reckon it’d be a real holiday treat.

 

A big bowl of Paella always puts a smile on the dial.

 

If you could have 1 superpower what would it be and why?
Oooh, it’d have to be the ability to fly.  I reckon it trumps the x-ray vision thing.  You wouldn’t have to pay for petrol, plus the views would be exceptional.

 

How did you end up at Hidden Door?
I saw an ad online advertising the position and thought it sounded like an epic job.  I applied, landed an interview and here I am!
It helped that Will is a cousin of mine as well.  As the old saying goes, it’s not what ya know…

 

What do you love about working here?
It’s awesome to see people let their hair down and having fun with their work colleagues.  Some of the group dynamics that you experience are great, people trying to take down the boss in a game of Bubble Soccer, sledging between different departments during a challenge on the Amazing Race.

 

It feels great to come home from work knowing that you’ve motivated people to get excited about something.

 

If we gave you $1m right now what would you do with it?
I’d book a flight to the States for a while, I’d buy a few guitars and probably spend a lot of money on records.    It’d be nice to give a few dollars away to some people who need it more than me as well.

 

What would be the coolest team activity in the world?
I’d love to see a massive group sky dive!
