What have you been proudest of this year?

Opening Partners Andrews Aldridge New York, almost 17 years after we started in London.

And what's been your biggest disappointment?

Not making it on to anyone's "if you're planning a fun night out with someone from the industry" list.

When was the last time you surprised yourself?

Everyday I look in the mirror.

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

I would love more time. Time to think. Create. Collaborate. Prototype.

How do you get your creative juices flowing?

Squeeze hard.

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

Roger Sterling. Do you need to ask why?

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

iTunes in the cloud. I love all my music ever, wherever, whenever. It's genuine luxury.

What's the last Google search you did?

Apple Pencil. No one seems to have mentioned it's a complete strategic U-turn! It's lovely though.

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


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

Centre forward.

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

The Clash's London Calling - all the art, music and literature you need. Vinyl, obviously, so you can appreciate the sleeve and read the lyrics.

I'm still here because…

I still love it.
