Interview with Christopher

What superpower would you like to have?

It's a bit of a common one, but I think the superpower I'd like to have the most would be the ability to fly. It'd be great to be able to go anywhere.

Do you have any hidden talents?

This isn't really a hidden talent for anyone who knows me, but one of the first things people say if they happen to catch me eating is that I can eat a LOT of food and eat it quickly. I love food and tend to prefer savoury over sweet. Red's True BBQ is one of my favourite places to eat out in Manchester.

What's your favourite place to visit?

The sea - I love cruises and being able to sit on the deck watching the world go by. I also like unlimited food and drink, so maybe that's influenced my decision a little bit.

Tools you use at work/can’t work without?

Slack/Discord. Communication is vitally important in all businesses but even more so within tight-knit teams like at VIX. For days when we're not all in one place, or need to ask a quick question or share information with everyone in a way that can be referred back to - Slack/Discord are invaluable.

What is your spirit animal? Or what animal would you like to be?

I think I'd like to be something like a Killer Whale. I'd like to be able to roam the ocean without anything else being able to really bother me, they're also pretty cool looking.
