What is your name?

Andy Budd

What do you do?

I’m the director of user experience at Clearleft. I also answer the email.

What do you do when you’re not doing that?

Fight crime, wrestle sharks and generally put the world to rights.

Favourite food?

That’s a toughie. Probably Thai food, although pizza comes a close second.

Favourite city and why?

My favourite city to visit is Bangkok. It’s a complete assault on your senses. Best city to live in would have to be Sydney. I just love the mix of beach culture and urban cool. Oh, and the climate is perfect.

What did you want to be when you were at school?

I wanted to be a pilot so I could travel the world. I actually started my private pilots licence at the age of 16 and was flying solo before I could have a driver’s license.

Favourite word?


Worst thing about the internet?

Spam, spam, spam, spam, spam. Oh, and MySpace obviously.

Tell us a secret about someone else from Clearleft…

James Box loves to dance the Rumba (apparently ‘because of the energy’)
