What have you been proudest of this year?

Seeing the cast of Gogglebox watch the dad band we created for our Sainsbury's film as they stared on Britains's Got Talent.

And what's been your biggest disappointment?

Time.

When was the last time you surprised yourself?

Wearing Lycra for cycling at the weekend. Not in a good way.

If you could change one thing about the industry at the moment, what would it be (and why)?

The oversupply of agencies in a downwards race to the bottom.

How do you get your creative juices flowing?

A walk.

You're planning a fun night out. Who from the industry would be your (fantasy) playmates (and why)?

If it is a fantasy, I would go back in time some 25 years ago and get a table at Langan's. Long list of heros to invite. Would bring the managing directors of Google, Twitter, BuzzFeed and The Lad Bible back too. Long afternoon and evening.

The internet has been banned. What do you miss most (and why)?

Choosing what's next for my sock subscription. Losing hours following things on eBay I never knew I needed.

What's the last Google search you did?

Home cider-making.

The robots are coming. What would you get yours to do for you?

Dog-walking.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Be an Egyptologist.

All the world's culture (art, music, literature etc) is about to be destroyed. What one thing would you save (and why)?

British Museum. Seems like the responsible thing to do.

I'm still here because…

Of that meeting this morning when the team were brilliant and I still want to see that idea in action. Also, I am a poor time manager and I could have finished this an hour ago.
