Describe yourself in three words
Enthusiastic, athletic, fun.

Tell us your formula for success
Work hard, party harder and have great support from friends and family.

I am always well turned out to the office. Girls love boys in suits.

And your worst habit?
Phoning people late at night when I’ve had a few too many drinks.

What is most likely to irritate you about others?
When people say they are going to do something and they don’t do it and don’t tell you until the last minute.

What three items would you take to a desert island?
The GMP calculator, a basketball and Jesus.

What is your greatest extravagance?
Sheffield. I went to university there and I spend any spare time and money I have going back.

Is the glass half full or half empty?
The glass is twice the size that it needs to be!

What is the greatest risk you have ever taken?
Eating the marrow and cheese muffins that my colleague Andy made and brought to work.
