Secret talent that no-one knows about?: I can recite movie quotes and facts. Not too secret, it annoys a lot of my family, but still a talent!

What do you like the most about working with startups and small businesses?: Getting to see all of the amazing things that people are working on. Especially the eco-friendly concentrated companies, it’s nice to see people working towards making a change!
A penguin walks through that door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here?: “It’s 5 o’clock! Let’s head to the Taqueria!” And he’s here because it’s time for margaritas.
What is the funniest thing that has happened to you recently?: While away in Edinburgh, we got woken up at 9:45 am by a text from my mom’s cousin saying that the Red Hot Chilli Pipers (yes pipers, check them out on YouTube) were playing on an obscure platform in a train station in 10 minutes so we rushed to get dressed and ran down there to watch them play. Not the venue I expected to see them at, nor the time of day, but it was amazing to see such a talented group!
