Nick aka Dr. Calcium/Mr. Pickle (If Gazza is looking for me).

What energises you at work?
Being able to laugh and make fun during any situation or task.

What’s the biggest misconception people have about your job?
People usually assume I am breeding fish.

What would we most likely find you doing on the weekend?
Sinking tins and getting wins, usually a beer at my computer haha.

If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?
Hot pink crayon because why not?

Favourite coral and why?
Chalice is such an awesome product of nature’s creation.

What do you love about the job?
I love being impressed by such small creatures I see everyday.

If you could have any one superpower, which would you choose?
My superpower would be to banish people into a void of their own personality to forever reflect internally…or maybe invisibility.
