Do you have any hidden talents or hobbies?

LP: Id say a hidden talent would be I enjoy doing some Joinery/Landscaping Projects in the garden, but my hobbies would be Wall climbing and Tabletop games like Warhammer 40K which involve building and painting miniature models.

What show are you currently binge-watching?

LP: Just finished Binging Uncoupled and almost finished the Lincoln Lawyer!

What's your idea of a perfect day?

LP: A chilled day at home with my wife and young kids with them feeling needy(for me and not for mum!), then some tabletop/model building and a visit to the climbing wall.

What skill would you most like to learn?

LP: I've always fancied learning the guitar, not sure why because I can't sing either!

What's your most-used productivity hack?

LP: Being Driven is Key in any project, Focus on continued learning and your future.
