I started off reverse engineering games mostly through sibling rivalry, either to set better times or to cope with him nabbing the sheet with the logon codes. I studied Physics at the University of Bath and after graduating ended up getting a job with my friends' company writing code. That was back in 2007 and since then, I've worked in a fair few industries. They include legal, medical, finance, e-commerce, and, somewhat fortunately, motor racing, since I've built systems used for two Formula 1 races.
The teamwork here - I've never worked anywhere before where everyone pulled so much together to make things happen.
Yvon Chounaird; he's climbed everywhere and is seen as one of the inventors of modern climbing - he's also a passionate environmentalist.
I didn't have a job I wanted to do, I did want to work in Formula 1; and I've done that.
When I asked why my application logs were full up with what looked like a hacking attempt.
My portable, gas-fired pizza oven. I use it at least once a week. A highlight was using it at the river-side after a day spent paddling whitewater.
I wouldn't be a fictional character, but I'd take Bren Orton's paddling skills, or Shauna Coxsey's climbing skills for a day (they're both local athletes too).
I always used to get told I looked like Zach Braff when I was younger. He'd do. I'm not all that fussed.
