Favourite media

Heavily irregular user of everything, I vigorously defend my "right to roam". I honestly don't buy magazines, read the paper I am given on the train, use the internet like it is a giant wormhole. I love radio, I use my iPad to watch 30 Rock and Skins. I use Humax at home to avoid feeling "owned".

Favourite app

Still Shazam. Sometimes Magic Seaweed, love anything that uses AR.

Favourite recent ad campaign

Gatorade "replay".

Three best friends in adland

Impossible question.

Who do you owe most to for your success and why?

Peter Thomson, M2M New York. He gave me my first job in Y&R's media department and didn't fire me despite all sorts of unprintable episodes.

Greatest extravagance

I have a surfboard that to date has never surfed on British waters.

Greatest achievement

Ten marathons, 11 hopefully by the time this is printed.

What’s your idea of perfect happiness?

Surfing our secret beach in Malibu, with Joe, Art, Juri, Alan, my wife and children on the beach and cocktails afterwards.
