Name: Adam Graham

Job: Managing partner, Saint@RKCR

- You've got five hours left before the world explodes. What do you do?

See if I can hot-wire a space rocket.

- What's your best joke?

Never kick a midget with learning difficulties. It's not big and it's not clever.

- What's your biggest fear?

Dying young.

- When did you last cry and why?

A few months ago, when my daughter took her first steps.

- Who is your hero?

Dennis Bergkamp.

- Name one thing about yourself that few people know.

I have a gold disk for sales of a record I released many years ago.

- What's the worst thing about your job?

The food in our canteen, The Hub. Check out the unofficial Twitter page for a good laugh: twitter.com/hubfood.

- What do you see when you look in the mirror?

An ongoing case study in sleep deprivation.

- Which historical figure do you most identify with and why?

George Orwell, because I'm constantly writing about what the future might look like too.

- If you had a trained monkey, what would you make it do?

Ask Bubbles the truth about Michael Jackson.

- If your office was burning down, what object would you save and why?

Tony Harris' life-size cardboard cut-out of Sandra Bullock. It's a bit special.

- Are you happy?

Meh.

- What would you do if you were invisible for the day?

Make Tony's cardboard cut-out of Sandra Bullock walk around the office and dance on his desk.

- What's your most evocative childhood memory?

Scoring a hat-trick on my 12th birthday. Nothing has ever come close.

- What's your most irritating habit?

Tapping beats on any given surface.

- What belief do you hold most strongly?

What goes around, comes around.

- What's on your iPod most-played list?

Our agency band's set list to this year's Christmas party. I'm learning the drum parts so I listen (and tap) to it at least twice a day - much to the annoyance of anyone sitting next to me on the Tube.

- What do you wear in bed?

Nothing but an anti-snoring nose strip. It's a good look!
