What drives you?

Feeling proud of the things I create, especially if the process was difficult. Watching people enjoy using the things I’ve helped make.

Why did you join Kano?

To make fun of stuff that people enjoy using and hopefully learn something in the process.

What is your proudest accomplishment?

Managing to be with my girlfriend for over 8 years without her killing me.

If you could give your younger self 1 piece of advice, what would it be?

To get a better haircut, and generally re-think my facial hair (does that count?!

What is the single most valuable thing you’ve ever learned?

That being sociable and making people feel comfortable is something you need to do, even if it doesn’t come naturally.

My secret passion is…/ guilty pleasure

Beef suya and Super Malt combo. Good for the soul, bad for the arteries.

In the next 5 years, the biggest thing I want to achieve is…

To be happily married.

What is something most people don’t know about you?

As a young man, I posed nude for an art film. It was a non-speaking role. It was tasteful.
