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

My emails. There’s a usually a surprise or two waiting for me every morning.

What does your typical day look like?

A blur of emails, Twitter and adult content.

Which app can’t you live without?

Auto clicker. Some things require a LOT of clicking, if I didn’t have that, my right index finger would be five times larger.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Video games! I love video games, I currently play a lot of Heroes of The Storm, and Witcher 3.

Who is your professional inspiration?

A man named John Bain, known as TotalBiscuit, the Cynical Brit. He’s a PC games critic on Youtube. The reason why he’s an inspiration for me professionally is because he’s an honest man who believes strongly in ethics and who won’t be bought for his reviews, if something he does is sponsored by a company he will tell you. He also gives the small developers a chance by reviewing their games over the big titles, even though that may be better for his business.

What is your favourite film?

The Star Wars saga, I saw A New Hope when I was seven or eight years old, and it’s been my favourite film ever since.

What TV show/s are you currently watching?

Star Wars: Rebels, Falling Skies, Defiance, The Last Ship and Dark Matter. These are the currently running shows, check back later on to update the list!

What’s on your music playlist at the moment?

The Agonist, Clawfinger, Psychostick, ZZ Top, AC/DC, George Thorogood, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Two Steps from Hell, Killswitch Engage, Droid…

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

Bioware, I’m a huge fan of video games and they make RPGs, my favourite type of games. They’re my favourite because they are the best at storytelling and their games have been consistently brilliant since I first discovered them as a child, when I played Baldur’s Gate for the first time.

Who should we follow on Twitter?

Me of course! @WD_Laurence, oh and my team as well I guess… @jonathanbird_ @MissDaniMeme @ClintonReabow and @megan_kuhnel.

Best advice you have received?

“Don’t pick a fight unless you know you can win” – Jonathan Bird.

Do you have any productivity tips?

Don’t be afraid to have a laugh. Those small moments of levity really lift spirits and allow you to work for longer without feeling tired. If that doesn’t work for you, I just put headphones on and blast some energetic music.
