Bye-bye the decade with no name. What are you relieved to draw a line under?

Hard to draw a line under what I am relieved about.

What’s your biggest hope for the decade ahead?

That Facebook is outed and broken up.

And what’s top of your professional to-do list for the 2020s?

Keep adapting.

You have to job swap with someone in our industry for one month. Who would it be with and why?

A commercials/content/film director. I like directing but never have the time to do it.

Who is your best friend in the industry and why?

Margaret Johnson, my business partner, because she can be trusted at all times.

What do you think the Friday feeling is?

No different to the feeling of any other day of the week.

Who or what would you put into room 101 and why?

Sean Spicer (or his equivalent). For being prepared to lie big with smug impunity.

If you could uninvent one piece of technology, what would you choose and why?

The noise that goes off in your car every time you open the door. Reason is obvious.

In the spirit of embracing failure… What has been your biggest screw-up?

Trusting idiots – entirely my fault.

What do you do to stay match fit?

Eat less.

What would be your darts walk-on music and why?

The adagio from Mahler's Ninth – doom laden.
