What's your favourite film and why?

My favourite film...I'm going to have to say Se7en. I know how dark that film is but I think it's brilliantly written with unexpected twists and turns throughout. 

If you could invent one thing what would it be?

I would have to take a page out of Elon Musk's book and would invent a way for people to be transported around, similar to the way they do in the show Futurama. I just think it would make things ten times easier and quicker.

What makes you #DistinctlyDifferent? 

What makes me Distinctly Different is the interest I have into why you might be looking to leave a role and would really focus on that aspect to find you one that could eliminate that problem for good.
