Cubo Connect: Meet Douglas Higgins

Tell us about yourself?

I’m Douglas Higgins and I’m from Kilkenny in Ireland. Outside of work, my favourite things to do are cooking, going to the gym, supporting my wife with her Candle business (Wired Irish Crafts) and spending time with my Son. I’m a big fan of Rugby, Formula 1, and all things car and aeroplane related. My favourite way to unwind usually involves going to Comedy shows, walking, watching great TV Shows and trying new restaurants!

Something about yourself that most people don’t know?

I can fold my ear inside out! I also got to sit in the cockpit of an Airbus A320 when landing in Rhodes, Greece. I knew the air hostess and she told the pilots I was also a Pilot and they offered for me to join them in the cockpit for landing! It was only after we landed they found out I was just a passenger!

Favourite holiday destination?

Favourite holiday destination is New York City. I’ve been travelling there since I was 12 as my Dad and Brothers live there, so it’s like a second home to me! Apart from NYC, I love going to Playa Blanca in Lanzarote. It has been our family holiday for many years. Dream holiday destination is Las Vegas and Dubai.
