What’s the strangest food you’ve ever eaten? Jellyfish in a Chinatown restaurant in New York – it was quite the challenge to eat jellyfish off a small side-plate using chopsticks.
What was your dream job when you were a child? I had a brief career as a professional footballer so I suppose that ticks off one box on my wish list, but I also dreamt of becoming an F1 driver mainly because of the speed, glamour and racing car technology.
If you could time travel where would you go? 2118 – so that I could witness the progress of the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’ that we are currently a part of – the ‘Digital Revolution’ – to see how much closer humans and technology can operate together.
Which superhero would you be and why? Black Panther – to be a king of a nation and tasked with saving the world sounds a pretty decent gig.
What is the innovation you have been waiting for? Hologram Telecommunication.
What are your guilty pleasures? Angel Cake slices and Europop/Eurodance music (a nostalgic reminder of summer holidays in the Mediterranean).

What would you do if you had an extra hour in the day? I would perhaps meditate or learn another language.
