Confident. Expressive.

Catapult has three founders.

Our Story

Catapult was borne with three founding principles. 1. Consistency b. Focus and 2. Never allow those who have influence over you to disrupt the way that you want to do the things that you want to do. And to be better at words. And why shouldn't everyone get what they want? there's enough to work and there's enough staff right? Also, we should get a new freezer.

Catapult remains close to these core values and continues to work toward a flatter, better defined future that has fewer cabbage smelling things.

Meat the Teem
Steffen Wulff Peterson
Steffen can do 600 star-jumps without pausing while drinking 7 litres of fish oil and blended oysters. He has a tendancy to throw up soon after excercise. Sometimes during. On one memorable occasion he tried to run a marathon while holding his breath. This is something he wouldn't recommend.
Oli Johnson
After hearing about a 'flea circus' as a child, Oli spent 4 years trying to make one. The only outcome of this endeavour was an angry elephant, a squashed match-box and a two-foot, four-inch version of Stone Henge. No flea ever bought a ticket.
Ben Dixon
Co-Founder & CTO
Ben once cut his own finger off trying to whittle an acorn into a 1:1 scale model of the HMS Endeavour, while holidaying in the Faroe Islands. It was experiences like this that make him the ruthless Hungry Hungry Hippos player he is today.
Peter J Hykin
Business Development
Pete Hykin MD (not an actual doctor) heads the company mime troupe. He’s efficient, ruthless and tactical. But only at Connect Four. Loves puppies and wearing slippers in the office. Owns a complete set of signed High School Musical movies.
Jette Schaffran
Business Development
Jette makes all of her own clothes, with mixed success. Sneezes frequently. Cannot be fed after midnight and must be kept away from sunlight. Likes to sing.
James White
James is a developer. Not much else is known about this daredevil of a man, who in October of this year plans to jump the Snake River Canyon in Idaho.
Kevin Edwards
Kevin Edwards is part of the development team. He spends his days grimacing at his screen, his lunch and the people around him. Is deeply allergic to criticism and onions. He is very proud of his collection of unusual moulds.
Matus Holec
Matus's father claimed to have invented the question mark and often accused squirrels of being lazy. This hasn't affected Matus's love for Peruvian arthouse cinema, of which his knowledge is extensive. He was lucky enough to appear as an 'indifferent dishwashing tablet' in Aiko Domingo Calvo's 2013 tour de force "When Will It Should Are Foundry's"
Daniel Ivanco
Daniel joins Catapult after spending some time as a reigning monarch in a long-forgotten, aquatic city. After taking his Sensei's advice, he toured the Dutch canal systems to 'open his mind.' They were apparently the most enlightening 12 minutes of his life. Was once a spy but doesn't think anyone knows. Favourite colour: Presumption.
Sarah Jones
After inventing a series of clicks that allowed her to communicate with gerbils, Sarah discovered the incredible gerbil secret: That gerbils are fantastically boring. Like, seriously boring. She doesn't like to talk about those 7 years of her life. Her love for optical representations of data came about after reading 'QR codes and Sugar Lumps' for the 18th time.
Georgia Doyle
Georgia found the Arc of the Covenant buried in North Africa when she fell into an old tomb filled with snakes. She can play any musical instrument as long as it's painted yellow. Fond of marshmallow.
Dimitris Kakkavas
Dimitris is a straight-shooter with middle management written all over him. He can speak 15 languages, nearly all of which he invented, including, he claims, Welsh. His proudest moment was when he completed Super Mario World 3 without dying.
Kal escaped the destruction of his home world by mere minutes thanks to the tireless work of his father, Jor. Excellent at simple disguises, Kal joined the French Foreign Legion and spent some time in both Botswana and Luton before starting his brief career as a shoe inspector for the Swiss Clockmakers Guild. Dislikes: Any word ending in the sound 'hoom'.
Georgina Kennedy
Georgina's highest claim is that she once lifted the corner of the Eiffel Tower when a crepe-seller got their apron strings trapped underneath. As a thank you the crepe-seller gave Georgina 3 magic beans, which turned out to be just regular beans.
Rory Sadler
An excellent cook from an early age, Rory was in the 2012 semi-finals for Man Sandwich (like the Great British Bake Off but on the Isle of Man). Unfortunately he was disqualified after it emerged that he was liberally coating his trademark Rory's Roe & Ricotta Rarebit with illegal stimulants. The episode, sadly, never aired, in part due to the amount of expletives issued by the judges.
Matt Boulton
Matt learned to work well under pressure as a child when his father pushed him to become a dancer, when all he wanted to do was be a footballist. Unfortunately, Matt was terrible at both footballing and dancing, and his ill-advised attempt to combine the two by dropping a foxtrot on the pitch at his local cup final was poorly received.
Charlie Bastier
Charlie hasn't seen his own reflection since he contracted catoptrophobia when he was 7 after watching the last episode of Battlestar Galactica. No one really knows why. Favourite animal is, apparently, a zucchini.
Richard Oki
Author of the top 114th bestseller "What Goldfish?", Richard was a contender for the Floridian Under 6 Golfing Cup but was required to withdraw his application when it was pointed out to him that he was living in Huddersfield, 13 years too old and had furthermore, never held a golf club.
Benedict Hornby
Ben owns 13 fishing rods of various types and sizes, two boats, three of those little tents you see by canals and reservoirs, buckets, catapults, little fold-away stools, wellies that come up to his nipples and three subscriptions to Anglers Weekly. "You must really like fishing," we asked.

"Not really."
Will Cattrall
Will joins Catapult in both his official capacity, and also as a professional 'sugar daddy' - a term translated from his native Dutch ('Anatar'), which means 'the giver of gifts.' Is an excellent player of 'Crash Bandicoot' and a staunch supporter for the welfare of ants.
Richard Bowker
Was well on his way to becoming an Olympic high diver when his career was cut horribly short by accidentally taking Viagra(tm) just before attempting a triple choc tuck with semi-back twist in front of over 10,000 onlookers. Speedo(tm) withdrew sponsorship after he made something of a splash.
Adam Bell
Once heralded as the greatest historian alive today, Adam lost his title after it was discovered that the ancient civilisation of Roman pygmies he unearthed in Mile End was, in fact, a bag of abandoned costumes from a 1980s school nativity scene.
Kanisha Patel
Key Accounts
Kanisha found herself in Punxatawny, Pennsylvania on February 2nd and had to endure living the same day again and again until she one day woke to find that she was a grown up played by Tom Hanks. It was experiences like these that have made her into a strong and effective team member.
Cameron Ziafat
Key Accounts
"I have never walked on Jupiters 3rd moon, Europa and I never will. That's just not how I roll. Not my thing. So sue me." Was Cameron's answer to why he thinks he'd be a good fit in our quidditch team. He then took a small plastic microphone from a bag under the desk, held it for a second before dropping it and walking out.
Laura Gardiner
Key Accounts
Laura was chased by flying monkeys after she stole some shoes, kidnapped a kind of android and thieved some farming equipment and a pet. The flying monkeys didn't catch her and she was free to unmask an individual who was swindling dozens of people with simple trickery.
Scott MAxwell
Key Accounts
Scott earned his name 'The Shark Tamer' after he befriended 13 great white sharks off the coast of South Africa. He was apparently able to manage this feat by constructing a 12ft long shark costume made out of plywood and bubblegum.
Victoria McInnes
Key Accounts
When asked where Victoria would like to be in 5 years, she replied "a fairy" but quickly amended to "Queen of the fairies". Presumably because she felt she wasn't aiming high enough. Is scared of plug and play devices.
Molly Vester-Hodgson
Molly is the great-granddaughter of Sir Oscar Hiddlesthorpe, the great adventurer, philanthropist and phrenologist. Molly has very firmly followed in her great-grandfather's footsteps of adventure, though not literally. His footsteps ended abruptly in Indonesia, while searching for the fountain of youth.
Gabriella Margulies
Author of the book 'How to Eat Your Own Sunglasses' and 'Whence?' Gabriella is something of a literary sensation on the Pacific island of Tonga where, unfortunately, she has never had the opportunity to visit. Fanatical about Fans. She's a fan fan.
Megan Kealey
Megan claims she spent much of her childhood in a magical wonderland she found in the back of a wardrobe. Where there was some kind of big dog or something and a cold lady. She also invented her own type of shoe, that is also a chair.
Stanley Mwangi
Equally versed in both Danish and Campanology, Stan brings to Catapult his deep understanding of 16th century devout cocktail making and the strength co-efficiency of sun dried terracotta. Previous roles include: DJ, VJ, Relay, Melee and OBE.
Voted most likely to sculpt a paperclip into a unicorn in under 12 seconds. Didn't.
When asked why she wanted to work for Catapult Flo replied "Barcodes are the mark of the devil."
"Is that not an inverted cross or Golden Arches (tm) or something?"
"No! It's barcodes. That's how the devil knows what's his and what he has to ask before he can use"
Emmanuel Akinkuolie
Attempted to hold the record for moon walking on the actual moon, which was both a materially and financially costly exercise. It was only after spending upwards of 100 billion and landing on the moon that Eman realised that he can't actually moon walk.
Akshay Patel
When asked who Akshay most looked up to he replied "That guy with the flying car"

"The one who steals kids?"

"No, Doc Brown. He's also a wrapper"
Yasmin Desai
Yas survived for three years on Mars after a storm left her stranded with nothing more than exactly everything she needed to survive. Seemingly unaffected by the exposure to low gravity and high radiation Yas returned to a simple life of exchanging money for the teeth of sleeping children. Which is normal apparently.
Callum Evans
Callum's previous roles include concierge, pianist, baker, hedge fund manager, hedge trimmer, hedge enthusiast and the Duchess of Kent. He employs skills from each role to ensure his Improv Poetry Troupe 'The Clerkenwell Petroleum Oyster Cravateers' have the best possible chance of reaching the upcoming regional finals.
Adelaide White
When asked to list her top five skills, Adelaide simply replied with "I am Batman." While it seems unlikely, we've seen no evidence to the contrary.
Subeida Ahmed
Subeida joins Catapult after finishing her studies at a magical school for wizards where she was assessed by a talking hat. Proudly flies the Unseen University colours of Octarine and Infra-black. Eats Muggles for breakfast (a type of raisin filled cornflake).
Fernando Krieger
Gave up his life as a recluse after the puppet he made came to life, was abducted by a talking wolf, became a drunk and was eaten by a whale.
Polly Haddock
Polly was 5 years old before she spoke her first words, which were "I'm not entirely convinced of your argument mother, but I'll wear the owl costume to keep you happy." Winner of the Worst Owl Custume (under sevens) at the bi-anual Cement Mixers dinner and dance, Caracas.
Ilar Farrokhzad
Scared of spiders and rats, but so much greater is her fear of giant mutant rat-spiders that catch people in massive nets in order to steal cheese.
