01. Did you always want to work in a creative field?

I've been totally focused on creative forces since I was a child. I visited a lot of exhibitions and travelled with my family, and I was really interested in media production - who owns what, the behind-the-scenes on how shows are made - and I love to listen to music everywhere I go. So it was logical to me that I'd enter a creative realm.

02. If you couldn't do this job, what would your Plan B be?

I'd have loved to have programmed a global music festival! But also my life could be totally different to that, too - I could be a stay-at-home father, the best job ever!

03. What's the best advice you were ever given?

No goal is unattainable if you enjoy what you do.

04. Who's been your biggest influence, and how?

Steve Jobs, for his clear influence on tech.

05. Sum up a typical working day in 5 words.

Exciting. Hard. Surprising. Fast. Creative.

Ahh man, you missed it!
