How do you off-set your carbon footprint?
By trying not to fly (and planting a hedge).
Joan Bennett (my grandmother).
Thirty Club, MGGB. Badlands (the unofficial Bruce Springsteen fanclub).
Desert island objects
The Fedden, our family photo 'Yearbooks', my iPod.
Gladstone. I met my wife studying him.
The Guardian, Private Eye, Ten O'Clock News (with Fiona Bruce), I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue, Listen Again.
Biggest risk taken
Contesting my WPP contract.
One with no flying (and a bit of hedge-tending).
Who should play you in the film of your life?

Best job outside advertising
Running my own letterpress business.
