Which app or program do you check first thing in the morning?

I check the Hashsnap app first thing in the morning. That might sound cliché, but it’s true.

What does your typical day look like?

Right after I wake up in the morning I go for a run, then I have a meeting with the team, then I start working, with a break for lunch to cook – I love cooking – and then more work.

Which app can’t you live without?

Google Express – it makes life way easier.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I love kitesurfing. I’ve been doing it for a few years, but it’s difficult to schedule it around my work schedule, because it only works when the wind is right.

Who is your professional inspiration?

My dad – he founded a company and built it up from the ground at the age of 25.

What is your favourite film?

Remember the Titans. I love sports dramas.

What TV show/s are you currently watching?

I love the Simpsons. They’re always up to date with what’s happening in the real world and they put humour into it.

What’s on your music playlist at the moment?

Alt-J, Ben Howard, Imagine Dragons, Chet Faker, Vance Joy.

Outside of dating, which brand do you admire the most?

Apple, Nespresso and Tesla – three offline companies that got their user experience down perfectly.

Who should we follow on Twitter?

Guy Kawasaki (@GuyKawasaki) because of his inspirational and informative tweets.

Best advice you have received?

If people think you’re crazy, it means you’re doing something right.

Do you have any productivity tips?

Always divide your tasks into short-term and long-term, and don’t let the day-to-day stuff stop you from achieving the long-term stuff.

Also, always write everything down. Anything you don’t write down won’t happen.
