Martin Anderson

Which team do you work in?
I oversee operations.

What's your favourite film and why?
How to Train Your Dragon 2!! Alright, if you don't have kids you wouldn't understand, but believe me this is an ace movie. My little boy Alfie is crazy about these movies and we saw this one in 3D iMax and it was 'awesome'! Highly recommended. 

If you could invent one thing what would it be?
Wireless electricity. It would make life so much easier. I'm working on it!

What makes you distinctly different?
That's a hard one. I like a project. Some ongoing examples - my veggie patch, my mini orchard, my chickens, working on the family tree, astronomy and astrophotography, learning Italian, and my latest one...wait for it...learning to ride a unicycle, which was a random present for my 40th! Thinking possibly bee hives next year...
