1. Why did you choose advertising as a career?

I'm not sure if I chose it, or it chose me. I studied multimedia in DCU as I wanted to do something creative - I just wasn't sure what. One thing led to another and here I am.

2. Favourite all-time ad?

At the moment, it's Schwarz Flavour Shots created by Grey London.

3. Will you go to see the movie Fifty Shades of Grey?

I don't think so, it's not really my thing. I do have a pantone book on my desk though. It has 50 shades of most colours in it.

4. What irritates you most?

In the real world, cyclists when I'm driving and drivers when I'm cycling. In adland, tight deadlines which don't allow for time to push past the first idea.

5. Have you ever been mistaken for someone famous?

Some people say I look like Samuel L Jackson.
