His core values underline his day to day operations and actions:

Helping people as far as possible, evident in the role of technical support.

Learning, adapting, and developing.

Pushing the technology, break it first, then learn how to fix it. You never know what might come out of it.

Always focus on finding the story and connect the equipment with people; Technology is all well and good, but if it isolates you, what’s the point?
