When I’m not at work I spend my time… Spending time with my family or out training for my next triathlon.
The person that most influenced my decisions in life when I was younger was… Unquestionably my dad. He didn’t have much but gave me every opportunity to run hard at everything I wanted to experience.
The last interesting book that I read was… Tony Blair’s autobiography. Whatever your political stance, he was and still is a great leader of people.
My first job was… A sports journalist for Golf Wold magazine.
My guiltiest pleasure is… Eating as much as possible after a triathlon race, including fast food and as much chocolate and ice cream that I can fit in, washed down by a few cold beers.
At school, I was known for… A never give up attitude and driving an array of classic VW beetles.
My favourite movie of all time is… Snatch, a film by Guy Ritchie.
One of my favourite series on STV is… Game of Thrones
The person I most admire is… My wife. Going back to work recently, managing 2 young boys and keeping the home running like clock-work is no mean feat.
My friends say that I… Should sleep more and not try and fit everything into one day.
My hope for the future is that… Firm and smart action is taken within the Euro zone, so the global economic climate doesn’t worsen and we have a strong advertising market in 2012!
