What’s your role at G2?

I’m the new industrial designer, so I work with Ed designing and prototyping things.

Which band/artist can you not stop listening to at the moment?

Its not exactly music, but I’m obsessed with the “Welcome to Night Vale” podcast. Its so insanely imaginative and weird, I’ve listened to all 70+ episodes at least 3 times over.

What is your favourite film, and why?

The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Extended editions. Enough said.

If you were a super-hero, what powers would you choose?

Invincibility, so I could do lots of things like jump into a giant waterfall and I wouldn't have to worry about dying.

Where would you most like to go on Holiday?

Somewhere in the Arctic Circle. I’d have to wear about 19 layers because I hate the cold, but I want to see the Aurora Borealis and play with huskys and go on a reindeer safari and go midnight skiing and do lots of things you can’t do in England.

What do you love about your job?

The variety of projects I get to do, the graphics tablet I get to use, the ping pong table and the team!

Who is your favourite Designer?

Ettore Sottsass is my favourite for starting the Memphis group and giving two fingers up to Modernism and mainstream European design. In my opinion, he should get as much recognition for how he changed design as Coco Chanel does for how she changed fashion. My favourite Memphis piece is the super lamp — life goals to have that as my bedside lamp!

Favourite sport? (To watch or play)

I like watching the olympics and I like windsurfing

How long have you been at G2?

A month and a half! 

Tell us 3 random facts about you.

I don’t know my left and right.

I have crazy vivid dreams, and sometimes get them mixed up with real life which can get pretty confusing

Favourite literary quote

“A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.” Roald Dahl

or 

“If a picture’s not going well, put a dog in it.” Norman Rockwell

You could have any animal as a tame pet, what would it be? What would its name be?

A lizard called Sidney for my pocket to keep me company on long journeys. 

Cats or dogs?

All of the above, and all other animals really, but dogs are my favourite.
