What's your favourite use for maths in everyday life?
Video games! There's a goldmine of interesting maths in every video game.
What did you think about Maths when you were in school?
I didn't really like it, if I'm being honest. It was too abstract and I couldn't see how I would ever use it. In college I started to see how I could use maths to solve problems that were interesting to me.
What did you want to be after you left school?
I hadn't a clue. Writer? Game developer? I mean, if we break it down to the essentials, I wanted to be some combination of rich and famous.
Were you ever in trouble at school?
Eh, I was a wee bit of a swot, so no, not really.
Who is your favourite singer or band?
Tom Waits will forever be the answer to this question.
Tell us a joke.
Chuck Norris once walked into a Burger King and ordered a Big Mac. And he got one.
