Career highlights

Still waiting on them, I hope.

Favourite TV programme

I adore telly, so too many to mention. To quote Dae-su Oh in Oldboy: \"The TV is both a clock and a calendar. It's your school, your home, your church, your friend and your lover.\"


The Saturday Guardian.


Elle Decoration.


Amazon, same as it ever was.

Favourite recent marketing campaign

Shelter. Sorry, I know it's one of ours and thus feels like ghastly self-aggrandisement, but even if it wasn't, I'd be equally excited by its genuine excellence in every media channel.

Favourite brand

Lilly. It makes the insulin that keeps me limping along.

What’s your concession to the recession?

Dignity and self-respect.

Who would play you in a movie?

Paul Lawson.

Party trick

Forward moon-walking while doing a Robert De Niro impersonation. It's fucking incredible, I tell you.


Clay shooting, YouPorn and fencing. I am a Renaissance ECD.

What gadget do you think should be invented?

Something to allow me to easily combine all three of my hobbies.

You’ve got one last Tweet before you die. What do you Tweet?

Fuck that for a game of soldiers. I'm not spending my last few moments on God's Earth tearfully masturbating in the dark.


The chain-smoking creative is now partly crippled after a bar-based piggyback accident went horribly wrong leaving him with steel pins in his leg. This hasn't affected his eye for the work, though, and he remains one of the best writers in the business. Having spent a long time bedding down Homebase, he needs to come out fighting next year with a couple of big wins and some award-winning work.


In the slums of Portsmouth, in the last dying year of the 60s.
