What I enjoy most about working at Space & Time…
Ours is an industry where it’s easy to talk a good line and not deliver. What I love about working here is that it’s essential to everybody that we do deliver. We’ve built a team of serious professionals who care about what they do, and work well together to achieve our clients’ aims. I know it sounds like sales patter but it’s true nonetheless. It’s really hard to have job satisfaction if you don’t have the chance to do outstanding work or if you have to work with people who don’t feel the same way.

Away from the office you can find me…
Well to be honest, you probably can’t. Hiding is one of my core competencies. I was UK domestic hide and seek champion in 2013 and 2014. Just ask the kids.

Favourite food…
Lasagne. Garfield was spot on.

Favourite song…
At the moment, probably The Beatles’ version of Twist and Shout, which is the finest pop song ever recorded. (You can keep your “not even the best Beatles song” opinion to yourself. You’re wrong).

Favourite film…
What’s that one with that guy? Who does the stuff? And then there’s the thing with the bit at the end? It’s hilarious… I’ve no idea. I ought to say something chin-strokingly insightful like Seven Samurai, but if I’m honest it’s probably Weekend at Bernie’s, which is even better than Weekend at Bernie’s II (if you can imagine such a thing). There’s a dead guy in it who gets hit in the crotch non-stop for the thick end of two hours. What’s not to like about that?

Favourite ever ad campaign…
The Hamlet Air on a G-String ads. They were genuinely funny, or at least they were when I was twelve, and they really got hold of the power of a sonic trigger with that song and the way they used it.

Favourite brand…
Well I’m a man in my mid-thirties so naturally, SuperDry. Generally though I find I’m more convinced by brands that don’t go too heavy on the whole branding thing- they’re about the function and not the form; about doing a job properly rather than disrupting this or reinventing that. Someone like Berghaus do that quite well. Or perhaps that’s just their brand image and they saw me coming.

Favourite tech/gadget…
Dazzingly obvious answer, but I genuinely don’t know how I ever did anything or got anywhere without my phone. I have no sense of direction at all so having an electronic map in my pocket is invaluable, and if I’m going somewhere new and the battery is low, I’ll go all white and wobbly.
