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.
