Tell us an interesting fact about you?

I often cry at video-games and find them a spiritual and often prayerful place to spend time.

I run 50 miles a week, most weeks.


Why are you passionate about digital?

Digital is the air we breath, it’s a reality as real as reality. More than this it’s a space where spirituality, imagination and new worlds of possibilities combine. Also, it’s a lot of fun and offers unexpected opportunities for people of all faiths.


Name a hero of yours (other than Jesus!)

Donald Draper, although a broken and lost man at times his passion and ability to do and say what needs to be done is inspiring. Joel from the Last of Us is another hero, a man who struggles to come to terms with losing his daughter, but somehow manages to find his peace.
