Thank you very much Fiona and May the New Year be wondrous and magical to you
Wow. This guy is short and to the point with his answers. Is that just the way he is or was he just in a hurry to finish the interview. I hope it was the former and not the latter. Anyway, good job on the interview, Fiona, and keep up the good work.
