In the hot seat: Ebuyer’s Danny Young

Fish are one of the biggest phobias for Ebuyer’s content manager Danny Young, here he tells PCR why…

How competitive are you (inside and outside of work)?

I am very competitive, almost childishly so. I like to win and sulk if I don’t. 

What was your first job?

I worked in a garden centre in Sheffield when I was 14, selling Christmas trees. It was incredibly cold, but I got plenty of tips from drunken post-pub shoppers.

What’s the strangest thing you have cooked or eaten?

Starfish, it was terrible. I had it in Beijing last year and it tasted like a warm fishy pork scratching with black goo in the middle. I also had a ‘grub’ that tasted like a warm teabag.

Do you have any phobias?

I hate fish. Particularly small unpredictable ones. Can’t trust them, unless they are on my plate.

What’s your dream car?

I’m not a big car fan, nor very knowledgeable. However I like the concept of a VW camper driven around the Mediterranean.

If you could go back in time what would you do?

Probably invest in Google, seems like those guys have done well and could do with the money.

What’s going to be the next big thing in tech?

I think it might be something mundane but helpful like better battery technology. Everyone is getting fed up with their phones, tablets or wearables dying after 20 hours.
