What did you want to be when you were 10?

A sports bookmaker as it combined my two loves at the time – sport and statistics.

What was the last book you read?

‘The Future of The Professions’ by Daniel and Richard Susskind. Interesting to think how technology might change the tasks done by economic consultants and lawyers over the next 10-20 years.

If you won the lottery, would be the first thing you buy?

Entry to the World Series of Poker Main Event in Las Vegas. I’m a keen poker player and a lottery win would give me the confidence (and the bankroll) to enter poker’s most prestigious tournament.
