Job: Managing director, MPG Media Contacts
- You've got five hours left before the world explodes. What do you do?
Hmmm ... a toss-up between hiring an industrial drill to dig out a hundred feet bunker below the ground and necking six bottles of Cloudy Bay looking over the ocean.
- What's your best joke?
A guy shows up late for work. The boss yells: "You should've been here at 8:30!" The guy replies: "Why? What happened at 8:30?"
- What's your biggest fear?
- When did you last cry and why?
When Man Utd won the Champions League (and I foolishly bought the whole pub Champagne).
- Who is your hero?
Bryan Robson - the footballer with more injuries to his name than any other!
- Name one thing about yourself that few people know.
- What's the worst thing about your job?
It's based indoors; "ain't no sunshine".
- What do you see when you look in the mirror?
Too many grey hairs and black bags under my eyes.

Shakespeare. The ultimate wordsmith; words are everything.

Attack traffic wardens.
- If your office was burning down, what object would you save and why?
My PA, Amy.
- Are you happy?
Yes. I have a wonderful wife, three amazing kids, a beach hut and an Audi TT. Mission complete.
- What would you do if you were invisible for the day?
Make a visit to each of my competitors' offices. Sit in on a pitch, sift through their accounts and rising stars' HR records and unplug the servers before I leave.

Watching fireworks sitting on a speedboat on Lake Maggiore.
- What's your most irritating habit?
Writing essays on my BlackBerry.

Something comfy or nothing at all.
