What is your ideal office?
Anything that is not an “office.” I love working, but I struggle creatively and mentally when it feels like “work.” I am most productive in hotel bars, on airplanes or in the gym. Hence why my home office looks a little like the Chiltern Firehouse.
What is your preferred mode of transportation, and why?
Motorbike. It’s one of the the best feelings in the world. But riding in winter sucks balls.
What is your Achilles heel?
Breakfast of champions?
Have you ever seen a ghost?
No. But I had a couple years growing up where I thought that there was a ghost that lived in our house. I would always get woken up in the night by footsteps and glasses rattling. Scared the shit out of me.
What track will you always dance to?
“What a Fool Believes” by the Doobie Brothers.
What customs from aboriginal culture do you recall from your childhood?
Friendship and family. I was lucky to be adopted into an aboriginal family when I was young, because we played on football and basketball teams together. If anyone got into a fight or someone was being hassled, everyone would be there for you in a second. They would give you the shirt off their back and never cared over superficial shit. One of my best memories of growing up was the friendship I had with my aboriginal mates.
Who is the youngest person you trust?
My son. He is six weeks old. Also, he is the youngest person I know, so technically he wins by default.
What body part of yours would you have cast in bronze?
Pecs or guns. At least the hours of bloody gym would be worth it.
What is the most dangerous thing in your desk drawer?
Shit, I don’t have a desk. Or a drawer.
What’s the last thing that made you sweat?
The recent SSS fashion show in Paris. Samples arrived fifteen minutes before the show started. That fucking sucked. but was secretly exciting.
Can you describe the last dream you had?
It was a weird nightmare. I don’t remember a lot. I was on a boat and trying to find a way to stop some creepy monster from attacking people.
What disgusts you?
I despise “bad” people. I know that’s a broad demographic, but its a human trait to be a dick. So many people suffer from others imposing their asshole behavior or ideology on them. Wife beaters, racists, homophobes, politicians, the list is pretty long.
Lyrics to live by?
Every rose has its thorn.
What outfit of yours would you choose to be buried in?
Shit. The big question to finish. Probably the black pinstripe three-piece suit, ivory silk shirt, paisley tie, black cowboy boots, favorite ruby ring and a pair of sunglasses. I think I could live the rest of my days in heaven or hell in this outfit.
