Career highlights

Wonderful early career at Campaign before setting up Motive Digital Services in 1999. Ran Starcom IP then joined Dare in 2003 – obviously THE highlight of my career.

Favourite TV programme

The Street.

Newspaper

The Guardian.

Magazine

Website

Still www.bbc.co.uk.

Favourite recent marketing campaign

Crispin Porter's \"Whopper virgins\" for Burger King.

Favourite brand

Dare (for obvious reasons).

What’s your concession to the recession?

Lavish client entertainment.

Who would play you in a movie?

Anyone as long as it's not Eric Cantona.

Party trick

I fall over when I dance.

Hobbies

Tennis, cycling, Mario Kart.

What gadget do you think should be invented?

Instant wine cooler.

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

\"Saying everything I want to say about life, the world, the universe, in such a restricted space as 140 individual characters is very diffic.\"

Lowdown

The ex-Campaigner goes from strength to strength, with a new role as (effectively) the joint chief executive of Dare. He's been spending quite a lot of his time sorting out Cossette UK group issues this year too, though with a sale of the group pending, that side of his job could be changing pretty soon.

Born

Urmston, Manchester, in 1966.
