Employee Spotlight: Ian Arnold

Every month we like to take the time to sit down with a Laser Central employee and ask them some questions about themselves and what it is like working at Laser Central. This month we had a chat with Ian Arnold, here’s what he had to say.

 

 

What is your role at Laser Central?

I’m a programmer.

How long have you been working at Laser Central?

I have been working here for 13 years. Most of that was programming but I spent about a year on the floor.

What are the people like who work here?

There’s a good vibe. Everyone here is good. Everyone gets along.

Who would you like to have dinner with living or dead?

Barack Obama. He seems like a pretty cool dude.

What’s your hidden talent?

I’m really good at eating. I can eat a lot more than people think.

When was the last time you laughed out loud?

It was probably at something VJ said. He can be a pretty funny guy. He’s definitely the office clown.

What’s your favourite song?

Anything by the Foo Fighters.

What’s your favourite food?

I really like a chilli con carne. The hotter the better.

What was your dream job as a kid?

Probably a writer. I loved fantasy and all that sort of stuff but then I discovered I couldn’t write.

What do you like to do in your down time?

I really enjoy playing board games. A few of my friends will get together once every fortnight and play board games for a couple of hours. It’s really relaxing.

What actor would play you in the movie of your life?

I would probably pick an actor I like over someone who would actually do a good job of playing me. I think I would pick Chris Pratt.

Early Chris Pratt or new Chris Pratt?

Early. Definitely early.

If you could pick any animal what would you be and why?

I think I would be a dog. I always get along with them. It seems like they are having a good time.

What is your dream holiday?

I like to travel so I’ve been to a few places. The place I haven’t been that I would like to visit is Peru. That would be really cool. I want to see all the ruins and stuff there.

What inspires you to come into work every day?

I actually genuinely enjoy my job and I think it makes a difference.
