A new feature that we are going to start rolling out every month onto our blog is ‘Meet The Team’. This month we introduce our newest member to the Coretek team and that is Austen Petty! So we asked him a few questions about himself…

What is your role at Coretek?

I am a Junior Support Technician at Coretek and I’m part of the Servicedesk team.

How long have you worked in IT for?

I have worked in IT for 18 months, including my apprenticeship last year at Perins School.

What is something that not many people know about you?

I used to be in 3 bands, 2 at school and 1 outside of school. I played a tenor steel pan, bass guitar and cornet.

What is your favourite film?

Probably Rush Hour 2, just a great mix of action and comedy.

How do you spend your spare time?

In my spare time, I enjoy playing sports with friends like Tennis, Badminton and Snooker. I also do a bit of buying and selling on eBay.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

I would like to be able to fly or breathe underwater, those 2 would be very cool if it were possible.

What is your favourite food?

Another difficult one with so much choice! I would say a top quality lasagna is in the top 3 foods and the others must have some type of meat as part of it :).

If you were an animal, which animal would you be and why?

I’d rather be a predator than prey like an eagle because their eyesight is 5x sharper than humans so they could see an ant from a ten-story building or a rabbit from 4 miles away. And the best bit is being able to fly!

What is one thing that you could not live without?

I would say family, as I don’t know what I would do if they didn’t exist.

What have you always wanted to do, but never done?

I have always wanted to travel round the world, like around the world in 80 days. Also, I would like to go deep sea scuba diving as this is something else I haven’t done but would love to.
