Where is home for you? 
London, England

If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you go? 
Put me on a plane to Tokyo. 

If you could only have one pair of shoes, what color would they be? 
Brown. Wait! Do two-tones count?

Podcasts or audiobooks

Extroverted or Introverted? 

If you were a dragon, what would you hoard? 
Hoarding goes against everything I stand for.....well, maybe a hat or two.

Has one piece of art, literature or music helped shape who you are today? 

I cannot say that there is just one piece of art/literature or music that has helped shape the person I am today, however I am continuously influenced and inspired by creative works. From the films of Wong Kar Wai, to the inebriated tones of Tom Waits.  Art, in it's many forms, still has a major influence on my outlook. It's all about connection.

If you had to choose a different career, what would you be doing? 

Bar owner. I've always wanted to be the owner of a dirty little, 'no thrils', watering hole. The type of run down establishment were you get barred for ordering ice with your rum and coke. Country and blues music on constant rotation. Sticky floors and smoke to the ceiling.
