How long have you been coming to DeskLodge?
I have been coming to DeskLodge for 5 months now.
What’s your favourite thing about your job?
The best thing about my job is the fact I can drive the business In the way I see fit and be flexible, as the market changes on a daily basis. I love the freedom of owning my own business and I am proud that both businesses are over doubling each year since I started 3 years ago.
What is your favourite thing about DeskLodge?
The hosts and staff! They were the deciding factor in joining because as a business owner you need people around you for the good and bad times. The hosts are always welcoming each day and always are friendly. They make for a great atmosphere. It’s a great place to work, socialise and stay sane whilst growing your business!
What do you do in your spare time?
I exercise, watch Bristol Rovers from time to time (for my sins), love eating out and generally being happy. It’s not often I am miserable! Oh! I love a good gin and tonic...... so if anyone is buying, I'm your man!
What was the first album you bought?
My first main CD I bought was Definitely Maybe by Oasis, which still remains my favourite band and album to this day. I am a massive Liam Gallagher fan and the 90's scene in general.
Thanks Dan and good luck with the new brand launch!
