Lowdown

Ffitch's agency has a young, vibrant, energetic spirit that he somehow nurtures despite seeming to be none of these things. His lugubrious demeanour shouldn't fool people, though – underneath lurks a passionate media man with a wickedly dry line in jokes and a commitment to the cause that is beyond question.

Born

1963, Kensington and Chelsea, London.
