We're kicking off 2017's 'Take five with...' series with Senior PHP Developer, Tony Earles. See what Tony had to say...
Tell us a little bit about your job
My day-to-day role involves developing cutting edge websites, solving technical issues and mentoring other members of the team.
If you weren't ICG's Senior PHP Developer, what would you be doing?
I like to think I'd be an author or songwriter.
What's on your desk right now?
A "Darth Tater" Mr Potatohead, a large South Park "Cartman" figure, a rubber TARDIS and Einstein, Darth Vader and Deadpool bobbleheads.
"I never let a day go by without..."
Being grateful for everything and everyone I have in my life.
What is the best piece of advice you've ever been given?
When your wife/partner asks you if she looks nice, don't pause, don't think - just say "Yes, dear".
What is an interesting fact about yourself?
I've performed in front of (and had a follow up conversation with) Simon Cowell without actually knowing it was him.
Name five things you can't live without
My friends, my family, wine, a good book and my phone.
Finally, we're about to put the kettle on, how would you like your brew?
