Favourite app

Changes weekly but my current fave is Modern Conflict. Blink and I've lost an hour.

Favourite recent ad campaign

Hello ladeez. Old Spice is such an obvious choice but I can't avoid the fact that it's a beautifully written, brilliantly executed idea that's given an old brand new life. The world of manly perfection works as well online as on TV, and has made the brand relevant to a new audience. I would have said Nike "Livestrong", but it pipped our V&A "Recode Decode" campaign to a Pencil. Grumph. I also love this. A LOT. Never say no to Panda. Genius comedy timing – http://bit.ly/9r7EFR.

Three best friends in adland

Undisclosed.

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

I can't say one, I'm afraid. Bob Cotton was teaching me the ways of digital way back in 93. Patrick Collister, Saul Kline and Alun Howell employed Simon and me as a digital creative team at O&M more than 15 years ago. They were all way ahead of the game. Hats off.

Greatest extravagance

My car. Only 1,500 miles on the clock after a year. But I love it.

Greatest achievement

Turning Miss Wallace into Mrs. Gamble. Oh, and chipping in from more than 90 yards – golf, not football, unfortunately.

What’s your idea of perfect happiness?

An e-mailess day and a happy client. The two could potentially link. Sunshine, cold beer, and good friends comes close. Nearly.
