We are a fun team made up of an array of exciting personalities. Find out more about the faces behind the team in our Behind The Bubble Q&A.
What was your first job?
When I was 16, I got a holiday job as a door-to-door salesman of carpet-cleaning products. On day one, I finished the training at 9:30am, wandered around an estate in Bromley knocking on every door. After being shouted at and having doors slammed in my face, by 12:30 I had resigned and went to get a McDonalds instead.
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
Not an accountant! Probably would have chosen to be a musician. I play drums and guitar in a local band now.
Soundtrack of your life
Something by Prince, but it’s hard to choose. Actually I’m going to cheat and say the “Lovesexy” album because it’s 9 songs on a CD without track breaks.
Biggest pet peeve
I have two… bad grammar/writing, and anything technological that wastes my time (printer not working, wifi glitching, computer installing half-hour updates etc).
What is one thing you’re learning and why is it important? Polish. I love languages and it makes you use your brain in a different way.
In English: “you see problems, I see solutions”, said as often as possible to be annoying. In French: “quel dommage… tant pis” (“what a shame.. never mind”)
What is your guilty pleasure?
Coffee, and too many bacon rolls from the bakers next door to my house. I always end up with one when I’ve only gone there for a coffee. So more accurately, the inability to say “no” to a bacon roll when offered.
What is your most used emoji?
Almost entirely a smiley! Or a “boom” explosion
Do you have a hidden talent?
I can do ‘the cup song” out of Pitch Perfect, thanks to my teenage daughter.
Do you have an industry idol, if so who? And why?
I don’t think I do. I’ve always found small / boutique agencies much more interesting than the biggest players. And also as Finance Director, there aren’t many exciting accounting idols!
What is your favourite thing about being a Bubble?
Everyone works together to help achieve the same thing. That’s a surprisingly rare thing.
