GPWA Times Magazine - Issue 25 - June 2013

wish I’d known that my life expectancy would be shortened due to the affiliate conferences alone. Where do you think the industry will be in five years? I think the industry will shift almost entirely from desktop to tab- let/mobile. This is very exciting because we are the best at mobile. What’s your favorite thing to do outside of work? Any hobbies? I like to keep active outside of work. We have a Paddy Power Tag Rugby Team that keeps me busy in the evenings. If someone from out of town were to visit you, where is the one place you would have to take them? Coopers – it’s an Irish oasis of madness which has to be seen to be believed. I genuinely can’t de- scribe it. It’s an experience, to say the least. What’s the best movie food? Popcorn mixed with Maltesers. What is the last book you read? Did you enjoy it? And did you read it on an e- reader? The last book I read was a paper- back Marilyn Monroe biography. I prefer a physical book for some reason. What is your favorite movie? The Life of David Gale . . . I love Kevin Spacey. If you had a theme song, what would it be? I don’t know what mine would be but the Paddy Partners theme song would be Starship’s “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” … CHEESE!! If you could go anywhere on vacation, where would you go? I would like to visit the Great Wall of China. If you could have dinner with three other people, living or dead, who would they be? That’s a tough one. . . . I would pick Einstein, my grandfather and Amy Winehouse – that would make for inter- esting conversation. What would you do if you just inherited a pizzeria from your uncle? Sell pizzas! What are three things that no one knows about you? That would be telling. Need an image of this size to fill up the space.
