What does your workspace look like?
I work from home. My wife and I are lucky enough to have two home offices, my wife has views out down the valley into Glasgow, my view is out onto the front garden so I can see when her next delivery from ASOS is coming!
It’s great having my own space to work from in the house and felt very fortunate during the COVID lockdown. I have a lot of things in my office that relate to my passion for music, sports and books. I still have the bookcase I got when I was a child which is now filled with an ever expanding collection of my favourite novels.
Quite often when doing a video call one of my cats will casually walk along my desk on their way to sit on the window sill.
One of the best things about working from home is that I have no commute. I can start work straight away in the morning and when I finish I can immediately do what I need to do be it heading to the gym or making dinner for my family.

A very welcoming and friendly company. Everyone is always willing to help you out when they can and there are lots of extremely knowledgeable people who are happy to share their knowledge when asked.
What do you like to do when you are not working? Hobbies?
I enjoy going to the gym, I do this three times a week. I cook a lot and enjoy trying out new recipes.
Favorite movie, book or song and why?
Movie – Training Day – Denzel Washington is just amazing in it. I am a big fan of the crooked cop genre. Second favorite film is probably The Departed.
Song – You don’t know me – Armand Van Helden – One of the first dance anthems I really enjoyed growing up and has stuck with me ever since.
Book – Trainspotting – Irvine Welsh – Modern day Scottish classic. Written in a strong Edinburgh dialect which can be tough to read but adds a lot to the story especially for me growing up not to far from where the novel is based.
What is your favorite place in the world and why?
Ibiza – Great food, great drinks, great weather, great views and great music!
