Meet Joshua Armstrong, the french speaking Englishman with an interest in storytelling and video making. Our newest team member will join the Customer Care team as Ninja in August.
Welcome Joshua! We love to have you onboard and can’t wait to see what stories you will bring to us.
Tell us your story in 50 words
“If it looks good in memoirs do it.” I tell myself whenever life delivers a new opportunity. I’m an Englishman in Stockholm. Photographer. Vegetarian. Traveler. Writer. I live for stories – astounding, amusing or absurd – so I can’t wait to continue my own story with the aptly named Narrative!
Which fictional character do you believe is the most like yourself?
I think it’s Bill Murray in the film Groundhog Day. It’s a film about a man who is forced to relive the same day over and over again. Our hero learns to live every moment with as much enthusiasm as the last, and that’s exactly what I try to do. I’m always looking to learn something new, improve my skill set, or take up a new hobby no matter how monotonous the circumstances. I can’t sculpt ice or play piano, but I am the kind of guy who wouldn’t say no to trying!
If you could trade lives with anyone for a day who would it be and why?
An astronaut on the International Space Station. To see the big blue marble of an Earth from above has always been a dream. As a kid I used to stargaze with my dad, watching comets fly by and learning about the distant cosmos. So looking down at everything from the same space I stare up at with awe is beyond anything I could imagine!
What is world class support to you?
World Class Support is going above and beyond. I don’t mean to sound like Buzz Lightyear, but I believe that to be true. A smile or a joke can go a long way, and even a simple laugh can do more than resolve a technical issue. Laughter is contagious – so I firmly believe that friendly support can help change the world (even if it is one person at a time).
Where would you go in a time travel machine? Would you stay?
Assuming I can’t travel to the future for a pill that makes me live forever, or ensuring that infamous villains don’t rise to power, maybe I would visit the late Jurassic period and study dinosaurs. Maybe I’d tame a pterodactyl. Snare myself a stegosaur. Dance with a diplodocus. Pretty dangerous though… so it might be wise to grab that eternity pill first…
