How long have you been in this position?
The Monkeys, Founder & CCO, since 2005.
If you could have any job what would it be?
What has surprised you most about working in Media?
All of the hot air – far too many people regurgitate buzzwords and talk about interesting ideas, rather than actually creating them.
How do you manage to maintain a work/life balance?
As Bruce Lee says: “Be like water” – embrace the good things when they come (in both work and life) and push past the bad.

How do you describe your job to your friends outside media?
What are you passionate about?
My kids, family and friends, basketball – Boston Celtics, writing, reading, art, ideas, snowboarding, travelling, photography, music, the ocean – diving and swimming.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
If you could meet any one person (from history or currently alive), who would it be?
I’d invite Larry Bird (Boston Celtics) to dinner with Jeff Koons, Benjamin Franklin, John Steinbeck, Beck, Jacques Cousteau, Coco Chanel, Muhammad Ali, Maya Angelou, Jeff Goodby, Amelia Earhart, Henry Lawson, Bob Hawke, Nigella Lawson and Margot Robbie.
