Member Of The Week - Matt Hornby

Another week, another member. We're chatting to Matt Hornby of Chapman Guitars.

What do you do?

I'm Managing Director of Chapman Guitars. We design guitars with the public via YouTube, which are sold all around the world.

What brought you to PLATF9RM?

I was renting an office in the Lanes and the company I was renting from moved on.  I then was at home for 6 months and eventually missed being in an office and wanted somewhere fun, varied and flexible for growth.
 

You're on a long car journey. What is one song you have to have on?

I've had the same two CD's in my car for a year and a half... I keep meaning to get some form of Bluetooth device! But the two CD's are Toska which is a friend's band and the other is a band from Iceland called Agent Fresco who are one of my favourite bands at the moment.
 

You can only keep five possessions. What do you keep?

One of my guitars, a painting my friends did for my birthday, a squishy ball I had when I was a kid, my headphones and passport.
 

You're made Prime Minister - what do you do?

Make work optional - all the people who still wanted to work would probably carry on, so it would be OK... Probably?!
 

What's your food indulgence of choice?

I used to buy packs of king prawns and eat them out of the pack... I really like seafood.
 

What is something that you cannot wrap your head around?

Gogglebox - I'm not sure I understand why you would watch someone else watch TV?
 

Who should you always be nice to?

Your mum.
 

What's the most expensive thing you've broken?

I once drove a tractor into a BBQ -  The BBQ was quite expensive but I was only 11 so got away with it.
