Our newest recruit: Anthony Parker

This week we decided to quiz our newest recruit, Anthony. It’s been a couple of weeks since we welcomed Anthony into Ready and he has settled in to the digital team seamlessly!

As per tradition, we sat down and asked him a few questions to get to know more about him.

What were you doing before you joined Ready?

I was working at another creative agency in Bristol called Mr B & Friends for almost 2 years. It was a bit bigger than Ready and my role was more design focused. But, I am enjoying the opportunity of a more game-focused role!

Where did you grow up?

I’ve always sort of lived around Bath, Somerset and Wiltshire.

I’ve been living in Bradford-on-Avon for 4 years now.

What kind of things do you like doing outside of work?

I listen to a lot of music and go to a fair few concerts.

I listen to pretty much anything under the sun, I can’t really pinpoint a favourite genre.

Any favourite TV shows or films?

I’ve been watching Mr Robot and I love it! I love that it is all about a Developer and they get all the technical stuff right, which makes it very relevant to me.

I also went to the new Tivoli cinema in Bath recently to see the film Vice. The new cinema is so cosy and the film was very interesting.

Tell us an interesting fact about yourself

I taught myself most of the stuff I know about web development. Some of it I learnt from previous work experience with Stuart (our senior developer), but the rest learnt online by myself!

And lastly, if you had £1000 to spend in a day, what would you do with it?

If I had to spend it all in one day? I’d probably go on a trip somewhere.

I really want to go to Iceland, I’ve heard it’s really nice there. I’d rent a campervan or something and drive around. It’d be great to see the volcanos!
