Getting to know David Morton
Job Title: Solution Architect
Based out of: Manchester, UK
What do you enjoy about your work: It keeps my brain busy, plus they keep paying me every month, which is nice.
About your family: I’m a third-generation IT consultant and I’ve been doing this for >20 years now; my grandfather transferred out of the coal-mines into one of the first IT departments in the country (and he used to say it was only the second computer in the whole country) to run the payroll for the national coal industry. I ended up many years later working for a time at the same site that he had worked at – and I was something like the ninth member of my fairly immediate family to work at that particular site, that site was even where my parents met.
Favorite 3 movies of all time: Fight Club / Goodfellas / Blade Runner
Favorite book: The Confusion (Neal Stephenson)
Favorite hobbies: Roller Coasters, Photography, Travel
Interesting fact about yourself: I will travel far and wide to play on as many different roller coasters as possible (and take photos of them).
