Every month we pose 12 seemingly random questions to a member of our team to find out a bit more about them. This month it's the turn of David, our UX Manager (and an excuse to use this fantastic photo of him at UX Bristol). He's been with us for just over a year now. He sat down with UX Consultant Adi to answer the following:
Adi: What gets you out of bed in the morning?
David: Either my phone alarm or my 2-year-old usually!
A: And how long have you worked for Natural Interaction?
D: Just over 1 year in April
A: What’s your favourite thing about your role?
D: The variety of clients and their business objectives, no 2 projects are the same. The variety keeps things interesting.
A: How would you describe your role to a child?
D: We make the Internet look better and easier to use.
A: When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
D: An Astronaut. I have always been obsessed with space and what is beyond our little blue planet.
A: Favourite place you’ve visited?
D: San Gimignano, Italy
A: Pick one meal to eat every meal for the rest of your life.
D: Ravioli with mushroom and cheese sauce
A: What technological breakthrough would you like to see within the next few years?
D: Mainstream quantum computing or a breakthrough in space propulsion technology.
A: What’s your favourite film?
D: Of all time? Difficult one… probably Terminator 2
A: And your favourite line from it?
D: When the T-101 shoots the guard in the kneecaps - “He’ll live”
A: If someone filmed a biopic about your life, what actor would play you?
D: A difficult one, I’d probably pick Benedict Cumberbatch because he is just a brilliant actor.
A: And finally, if I gave you £10,000 right now what would you spend it on?
D: A red Yamaha YZF-R6 or a black Honda CBR600RR
