Best advice a colleague or manager has ever given you?

If you're ever feeling nervous, imagine everyone in the room naked... thankfully for our clients I'm not one for nervousness.

Describe your perfect Saturday night?

I'm a bit Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde on this one... the pendulum swings from boring nights in with the better half to having her drag me back home.

Most memorable experience at RAC/RR/SNK?

This one only happened a couple of days ago. I was doing a session with Rick Astley when I mentioned that it was my mum's birthday and when he discovered she was a fan, he promptly jumped up and said get out your phone and sang her happy birthday... I'll be cashing in those brownie points for a while!

What is your hidden talent?

I can close one top eyelid fully whilst keeping the other eye fully open. Everyone thinks they can do it too, but theyre just winking!

What is your favourite sound and why?

The sound of a crisp packet opening or rain against window panes... it's a coin toss.

Best pub trivia fact?

I'm a part-time quiz master so can usually be overheard trying to either give or more often than not, extract some juicy pub quiz fodder from my collegues. The best one I've had recently came from our Bookings Manager, Dan; Which animal can create the loudest sound? The sperm whale creates clicks at 230 decibels (humans feel pain at 70db).

How do you get rid of hiccups?

I drink water backwards, while hanging from the ceiling reciting the alphabet and balancing a plate on the tip of my nose... if you still have hiccups after that you're not concentrating enough!
