An interview with:
Director – Headphone Business Unit, Warwick Acoustics Ltd
Q1: How long have you worked for Warwick Acoustics?
A1: I have been with the Company for 7.5 years and am the longest serving member of the Company. I originally started as a consultant on a 9 week contract, at the end of which I was asked to stay and the rest is history!
Q2: What do you like most about your role?
A2: I have been in the audio industry for 22 years and throughout that time I have always worked with innovators of new transducer solutions. At Warwick Acoustics the team are developing solutions that deliver truly amazing listening experiences and everyone is very passionate about their work, I enjoy being part of that passion and being able to experience amazing audio on a daily basis.
Q3: If you could have dinner with one musician, dead or alive, who would they be?
A3: Now that’s a tough one as there are so many musicians from various genre’s of music that would make amazing dinner guests. Having to pick one it would probably have to be Prince, a genre-defyingly musical genius who fused everything from rock’n’roll, soul, gospel, R&B, synth-funk and New Wave. Although since dinner couldn’t be at a steakhouse, as Prince was an avid vegetarian, maybe I’d take Elton John as, “Eat meat on Friday that’s alright, Even like steak on a Saturday night” (as per the lyrics from his hit ‘The Bitch is Back’).
Q4: What do you enjoy doing when you’re not at work?
A4: For me life is all about experiences and so when not working I like to travel as much as I can. Be that visiting different parts of the UK or further afield I enjoy exploring new places, experiencing new flavours and creating lasting memories. If my travels include some scuba diving, a big passion of mine, then even better still.
Q5: What is your favourite quote/life motto?
A5: There are several that have moulded me over the years but the one that resonates with me the most is a quote credited to 16th US President Abraham Lincoln, who said, “And in the end it’s not the years in your life that count; it’s the life in your years.”
