Delivery driver for a garage in my gap year 145mph in Jaguars at 18 years of age.

Lowdown

The golf fanatic will be pleased with the flurry of new business in the final third of 2007. The decision not to repitch for eBay was vindicated by a sudden surge of wins, including The Stroke Association, Alton Towers, Freeview, General Motors and HomeForm. With the agency keen to shake off its image of briefs-for-melodies, some of its work for RAF and COI has shown glimpses of a larger creative potential.

Most expensive purchase

A picture or two.

Why are you good at what you do?

I know what I can't do.
