API Developer

API Developer Paul doesn't just love a bit of old-school caramel cake, taking part in outdoor activities with the Scouts and using his kids as an excuse to jump into the ball pit at soft play: he gave us even more goss on what he gets up to outside the Aquarium!


So here's an easy one to start!  What do you love about your job? 

I find it really fascinating as I love the idea of integrating things and making computers do the work for you. 


If you've got a night of relaxing in front of the telly lined up, what are you watching? 

I'll be watching the latest Netflix show - anything with space ships and lasers and I'm there (and apparently that includes Scrubs, too!) 


If you were a superhero, what would your super power be? 

Definitely to be able to understand anything, as that means I'd understand other powers so could steal them and have those powers, too. 


If you could jet off anywhere in the world, where would you go? 

Iceland.  The country, that is - not the shop!


Are there any interesting facts about yourself that you'd like to share with us? 

I used to be an outdoor watersports instructor, so my office was the back end of a raft.  I love all watersports, but if I was forced to pick a favourite it'd be kayaking.
