On the side...



My favourite movie is... The Royal Tenenbaums. When I'm 50 I want to... retire. I can't help to laugh when... people fall. Few people know that I... bite my nails. I wasn't a particularly good... break dancer.


My peeve hates are... ears that don't pop after a flight, incompetence, greed, bigotry and animal cruelty. In life I've learned the hard way to never... judge a book by its cover. When I'm 50 I want to... be like Jeff Bridges! My favourite animal is... the badger. They're deceivingly cute but can rip your head off. Few people know that I... only started playing drums after school.


My favourite music/bands are... forever changing, but the staples are Paul Simon, Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, The Strokes, Phoenix and The Rolling Stones. I wasn't particularly good... at Maths! In life I've learned the hard way to never... go to bed with the front door unlocked! When I'm 50 I want to... still have my hair! Words I live by... please and thank you.


Few people know that... I am a biker - from a family of bikers. My favourite movie is... a tie between The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and Underground. My peeve hates are... road rage. People should calm
