  • First job?

    My first job was back when I was about 16, working in a chip shop in Kendal. Nothing glamorous at all, but it paid for a few drinks!

  • Most treasured possession?

    My snowboards. I don’t get to ride them nearly enough, but the sense of freedom when you're carving down a mountain-side is like nothing else.

  • Favourite record?

    Favourite, as in only one?! I could write such a long list here, but I’ll have to say The Dillinger Escape Plan - Miss Machine. It was the record that opened me up musically and stopped me thinking about genres or beats.

  • Tell us something we don’t know about you.

    A band I was in got signed to a record label and I had the pleasure of releasing two albums with them and playing some pretty big shows!

  • Favourite film?

    I can’t just choose one here so I’m going to choose three! Donnie Darko, [rec] and What We Do In The Shadows.

  • Favourite holiday destination?

    Without a doubt, snowboarding in Mayrhofen in Austria was my favourite. It was the first holiday I’d been on for a long time, and it definitely made up for all of the holidays I had missed!

  • What did you want to be when growing up?

    I wanted to be a pilot growing up, but unfortunately, my eyesight wasn’t quite good enough.

  • Favourite website?

    I’m going to say YouTube. No matter what mood you're in, there is always something on YouTube!

  • Favourite piece of art?

    Pretty much anything by H.R.Giger really. His work has been involved in and inspired so many things that I love.

  • Favourite book?

    I have a young son, Theo, so the only books I really get time to read seem to involve dinosaurs, monsters or farm animals!

We'd love to work with you
