Ten fabulous years at Saatchis working with the best people; founding Leonardo, which scared me and taught me so much; travelling to Pakistan with my VSO client and getting a different perspective on life; founding The Shelf ten years ago, which has helped more than 100 young creative graduates get a start in our business; somehow managing to win awards consistently since I started and now helping to run a young ambitious agency which gives me a map towards more highlights.

Things that aren't a luxury.
Mixing a damn fine cocktail.
London history, London life, West Ham United, reading, dry Martinis.
Something to turn profound thoughts into simple Tweets.
\"Shame that no-one ever invented that gadget for turning profound thoughts into simple Tweets. Oh well...\"
It took Sharpen 18 months to find the right job after his WPP-backed start-up STO Response folded and he is entrenched now and involved in updating the agency's image as well as new business and developing its creative product. He is a confirmed Londoner and at weekends can often be found pounding the pavements with an ancient map fulfilling his passion for the history of London.
