Interview with Kieran

Who is your role model, and why?

I don’t really have one specific role model to be honest. I just look at people like Dwayne ‘the rock’ Johnson and Gary Vaynerchuck who have unprecedented dedication to everything they do. I’d like to think I strive to be like them as they work insanely hard to be at the top of their game after coming from humble beginnings.

They’re always willing to offer help and guidance to people and always have a positive outlook on life.

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

I’m a big fan of Illustrator to create funky vector based graphics and Notepad ++ as a do-everything text editor. It’s slightly old school when compared to newer software but it was the first text editor I used and it did the job nicely with a range of different tasks.

I’ve used it countless times to create basic websites and edit massive CSV files with ease (which I was surprised newer editors couldn't handle and subsequently crashed).

What do you like to do when you’re not at work?

Out of work I like to cycle and play football. Generally I just like doing anything active as it keeps me in some sort of shape so I can eat all the cake and KFC. Favourite cakes by the way, either Battenberg or Bakewell Tart.

What superpower would you like to have?

If I was to have one superpower it would be to pick up any instrument and play it at the highest level. That would be pretty damn cool to just blast out any song.

What is your spirit animal? / If you could be any animal what would you be and why?

I’d have to say my spirit animal would be a fish of some sort. As a whipper snapper I wouldn’t stop crying and causing havoc unless I was placed in my pram in front of a fish tank. I guess it’s their tranquil nature.

If I was to be any animal though it would probably be a tiger as they look pretty cool.
