My Character:
  • Intellectual
What have you been proudest of this year?

Teaching the dog to play dead for treats. No, really – it's fucking funny seeing him wiggling his little legs in the air.

And what's been your biggest disappointment?

The day I had to sell the car and move to the sensible end of Saatchis' car park.

When was the last time you surprised yourself?

The time I spelled rhythm right first off.

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

The chief strategy officer of Saatchi & Saatchi – I hear he is a bit of a tosser.

How do you get your creative juices flowing?

Drinking phamaceutical-grade caffeine and turning to a fresh, clean page of the Moleskine.

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

A bunch of miserable old planners like me – Malcolm White, Russell Davies, Charlie Snow and Nikki Crumpton should do the trick.

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

The National Trust app. How else do you fill a wet weekend in October?

What's the last Google search you did?

Pokémon porn – and now it's on my fucking search history.

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

Chemistry meetings.

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

Five foot ten.

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

Andy Nairn, the planner's planner.

I'm still here because…

The only other thing I am qualified to do is bar work and my mental arithmetic isn't good enough for that.
