Tell us a little bit what you were doing before joining Spectre

Graduated from the University of Strathclyde with a BsC in Computer Science, previously worked for a startup that focused on offsetting carbon emissions

What’s your favourite thing about what you do?

The feeling of satisfaction after overcoming a difficult problem

What do you do in your free time?

Binge Netflix, go to the gym, and play video games mainly. I also try to go for a walk at least once a day

What do you do to turn things around when you’re having a bad day?

Go on a walk. If I’m having trouble with something I find a bit of fresh air and exercise really helps clear my head

What is the most unbelievable thing that’s ever happened to you?

I’ve kept the same tight knit group of friends since secondary school and I consider myself very lucky for that

What’s something you’ve done, but will never do again?

Climb a Munro while sleep deprived and hungover, that was a lesson well learned

Which actor would play you in a movie about your life?

Chris O’Dowd maybe? Basically an amalgamation of the cast of the IT Crowd

What’s one song you have completely memorised?

This is a tough question, there’s too many to count. Could be MF DOOM one day and Britney the next. My go to karaoke song tends to be Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked by Cage the Elephant

What’s the first concert you ever went to?

Muse at the SSE Hydro is the first concert I remember
