Definitely, the fact that we’re at the forefront of technology and are doing things that no one else is doing. I also enjoy how close the Test & Config team are, we are a great team and we all get on really well.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time I enjoy a bit of gaming and I like going to the gym. I also really enjoy spending a lot of time with my fiancé. We enjoy going out to eat and like to go skiing together when we get the chance.
What advice would you give to younger generations who aspire to work in the STEM industry/want the same job role as you?
That’s an interesting question for me as I come from a slightly unusual background. I was a sound engineer but unfortunately lost my job in the COVID pandemic. I would say just don’t lose focus of where you want to be. Even if you get the wrong start or a setback, just stop, take a breath, and work out your next steps.
What three items would you take with you to a deserted island?
Haha we were just talking about this a minute ago! I would bring a bag of compost, seeds, and a trowel.
What are 3 characteristics that best describe you as a person?
Outgoing, energetic & confident.
If you could teleport anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?
I’d probably go to Japan. It’s where me and my fiancé are thinking of having our honeymoon. I’d like to go and scope it out. It’s somewhere I’ve always wanted to visit. And obviously, it’s a huge hub for technology so it would be very interesting to see what they’re doing over there.
