Who is your hero?
Probably a common answer, but my late father.
Again, no doubt a standard response, but my three grown-up sons.
Who makes you laugh the most?
My 18-month-old granddaughter Iris… she is just nuts and beautiful.
What three things do you always carry with you?
The usual, I suspect. Keys, wallet and phone. I need to add a fourth now as well – my reading glasses!
What really makes you angry?
Automated and poor customer service.
What’s your Sunday morning routine?
It varies, but mostly chill/run/watch some football.
Most embarrassing industry moment?
Singing and dancing to In the Navy by Village People dressed in a wet suit as a Navy SEAL at a Corporate Express sales conference. You’re definitely not having pictures of that!
What’s something new happening in your life right now?
Just did my first-ever podcast which was fun.
One of your best childhood memories?
Spending the summer of 1983 touring Florida playing football – or soccer, as they would say!
What would be your last meal?
Charlie’s Chicken. It’s a family friend’s local speciality in Birmingham.
What’s something you’ve done that no one would believe if you didn’t have proof?
I flew a plane over San Diego, California.
Tell us a secret that your work colleagues don’t know about you.
I was due to play for Manchester United reserves at Derby County but arrived late, so wasn’t picked.
Best concert or show you’ve ever been to?
Without a shadow of a doubt, it’s Hugh Jackman’s show. I saw the performance in 2019 when he toured the UK. He really is the ‘Greatest Showman’.
Last book you read?
Capital by John Lanchester
