What’s a typical day for you at Seven League?
There isn’t one. Content, research, live events. It’s never the same – and that’s what makes it great.

What’s the best thing about your job?
The challenge.

Favourite future tech?
It’s the personal tech that excites me. The arrival of 5G, foldable phones, wearables, hearables, NFC, ‘lite’ data tech – the stuff that really impacts the day-to-day life of everyone around the world.

Favourite film?
Independence Day

Favourite arcade game?
Time Crisis 2.

Sports positions played?
Goalkeeper for the school team. (Broke my little finger beyond repair. Idiot.)

I wish I’d…
Been better at P.E. It would have made the bleep test a bit more bearable…
