In The Hot Seat: Paul Nolan, Ebuyer

Ebuyer’s senior product manager for components, Paul Nolan, talks about supporting Liverpool, brewing his own beer and how he got the nickname ‘Casper’.

What are your hobbies?

I love football and going to watch Liverpool, it’s an important part of family and friends time for me. I enjoy gaming too, it’s a great way to relax at the end of the day.

I also love home brewing. I’ve brewed my own beers for over six years now and I love the satisfaction of brewing your own beer, sharing it around friends and family to get feedback. Nolan’s brewery is expected in the near future!

What was your first job?

I worked at a pub called the Bulls Head close to where I grew up.

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

I’m a great cook so nothing too much to shout about there but the strangest thing I’ve eaten is a century egg, it’s not for me. Though I’ll try any food once.

What’s your most embarrassing or funniest moment in the industry?

When I first started in the industry I picked up the nickname ‘Casper’ because I was as pale as a ghost with hangovers. Some things haven’t changed.

Do you have any phobias?

House spiders, they’re evil! Them and snakes – pretty standard really.

What’s your dream car?

A Volkswagen Splitscreen T1 early 23 window Samba Campervan. I’ve always wanted one for the summer. They are amazing when restored – and can look so individual.

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

If I could go back in time I’d photobomb the iconic Beatles Abbey Road album cover.

How competitive are you?

I’m very competitive. I strive to be the best, it’s how I’ve always been. I want to do well and improve myself.

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

Virtual reality. There’s been a lot of hype building around VR and it’s getting exciting. By the end of the year there will be so much drive around it.
