What advice would you give a trainee just starting out?

Don't be afraid to ask lots of questions.

Did you have a mentor who supported you in your early career? What was the most valuable thing they taught you?

One of the most valuable things one of my mentors taught me is to ask for the salary I want and not to let others set that for me.

What's your favourite midnight snack when you're in late from the office?

Crunchy snacks in general are all good on late working nights.

What do you do when you're not working? Any hobbies?

I like walking in Central Park and being in nature in general.

Where can you see yourself in ten, twenty or thirty years? (you can pick one!)

In 30 years, I see myself having retired if I have not done so earlier!
