Career highlights

My first day at JWT, the home of planning.

My \"Converse with suit\" phase – so wrong.

Working with talented, curious, challenging people every day.

Worst thing about your job

When great ideas slip through the net.

Advice for a wannabe A Lister

Be unreasonable, often.

If you could be anyone else in this business, who would it be?

Russell Ramsey – he gets to work on my briefs.

What would you do on a sabbatical?

Me, Mrs Q and Baby Jake ambling our way through various former colonies with no plan, no agenda.

Your USP?

Unbreakable.

What would you change about yourself?

My dad-like habit of falling asleep on the sofa in front of the telly – sure sign that middle-age is kicking in hard.

Favourite media

The Sun, bbc.co.uk, Grazia.

Favourite shop

Liberty.

What’s the biggest lie you’ve told?

That I've never tried fake tan.

How many toilets do you own?

Three – but Mrs Q owns another couple.

What can’t you live without (apart from family)?

Toothbrush.

Lowdown

JWT's new head of planning joined from Leagas Delaney earlier this year. Quinn, whose uncanny resemblance to Chris Evans means he is often stopped in Knightsbridge for his autograph, is sure to stamp his witty and warm character on the agency's planning department.
