  • Supposedly at events I wear t-shirts that are too small for me. I don’t believe it though.

MY SECRET

  • It's a secret. Duh.

  • Now it wouldn’t be a secret if I told you!

IF I WERE A SUPERHERO...

  • I'd spend way too much time designing my costume.

  • I'd be Radioactive Man.

  • Earthworm Jim … just cos he’s funny!

I'M HAPPIEST WHEN...

  • Looking out on a crowd of happy people at an event we've helped make happen.
  • I've a paper and a pint of Guinness at the end of a long day.
  • Sitting by a beach having an ice cold beer. That’s probably because it’s what I’m doing right now!

  • Hotel California
  • Banda Sonora Guitarra G
  • Anything by The Police, David Bowie or Thin Lizzy

  • Magazines. I'm a sucker for colouredy magazine covers.
