Meet the Team Quick Fire Questions:

Q: Do you have a nickname?

Not as far as I’m aware. ‘Dave’ is pretty short and sweet as it is to be honest!

 

Q: What’s the one thing you can’t live without?

Coffee is basically my life support but I don’t think I could go a day without music. It gets me through the tough days, enhances the good days and just generally excites me. I love going to gigs and discovering new bands. I’m a big fan of rock and metal, and half of my friendships have been formed through music. I’ve also played guitar for 12 years.

 

Q: Worst Fear?

There’s nothing to fear but fear itself, right? I don’t know, maybe not being good enough or not achieving what I want in life.

 

Q: Where do you most want to travel, but have never been?

This isn’t really something I’ve thought a lot about. There are lots of places in the world that I’d like to visit but I don’t have a burning desire to go somewhere at this point in time. I’m just sort of seeing where life takes me.

 

Q: What’s your favourite movie?

I watch a lot of stand up comedy, my favourites are Louis CK, Tom Segura and Joe Rogan. In terms of films, probably Limitless.

 

Q: What’s your favourite food?

My favourite thing to cook at the moment is seared salmon with a prawn and chorizo quinoa, but I’m really not as fancy as that makes me out to be!

 

Q: If you could be a superhero, what superpower would you have?

I’d have to say teleportation. I’d have so much more time if I didn’t have to travel!

 

Q: What do you like to do in your spare time?

I enjoy going out with friends, going to gigs and going to the gym. I also like to sit down and play guitar, listen to music or watch something on Netflix.

 

Q: What have you always wanted to do, but never done?

I’d like to actually do something with my musical talent and play in a band. I’m working on it, watch this space!

 

Q: What, if anything, have you ever re-gifted?

What a weird concept. Gifts I’ve received that I’m not huge on will usually just end up in a drawer somewhere.

 

Q: What was the worst punishment you received at school?

I was a little goody two shoes in school, I don’t think I ever had a detention.

 

Q: If you were a piece of Premier equipment, what would you be and why?

Who came up with this question?! I’d be an Elation Sixbar 1000. I’m bright, I’m versatile and I make the place look pretty.

 

Q: What’s your favourite 90’s song?

What’s My Age Again? – Blink 182 or Basket Case – Green Day

 

Q: What’s the best event you’ve ever worked on and why?

We ran a conference at the Belfry in February 2017 that I had the opportunity to be the lighting technician for. It was my first time in that role and I really enjoyed it. It gave me the chance to be creative and really feel part of the show, and opened a doorway into something I’m really interested in.
