If you could swap jobs with anyone on the team for one day who would it be and why?
I could swap jobs with anyone on the team for a day it would have to be Jim, he always has some sort of DIY project on the go and gets to play with all sorts of heavy machinery so I think that would be fun.
If you could work on any event in the world what would it be and why?
Coachella festival in California - not only would it be awesome to get up close and personal with some of the best and latest bands and DJ’s but they always push the boat out with their audio visual displays.
