What was your favourite subject at school?

I set up a wedding business in the South-West of France providing fully all-inclusive packages.

What’s the funniest thing you have ever done to a work colleague?

I worked part time in a call centre at 17 selling Disneyland Paris holidays. We stuck a motherboard of a computer to cover the buttons of the coffee machine and told one of the girls the coffee machine is now voice activated. She then spent 15 minutes trying to pronounce her words properly so she could order a flat white coffee.

What is your motto in life?

Chance by name, chance by nature

If you were allowed one dream perk what would it be?

A paid for, month-long holiday to a destination of my choice every year

What’s your favourite movie and why?

Man on Fire – I love the setting, the music, the storyline and Denzel Washington has to be one of the best actors in the world.

What luxury would you have on your desert island?

MP3 player – you can’t be on a desert island without a bit of Bob Marley

What animal best reflects your personality and why?

I thought it would be interesting to ask my girlfriend what animal she thought best describes me and she responded. “You are like a dog. You like being rewarded when you’ve done something good, you are stubborn and hard to train, enjoy meeting new people and when you are out, you run off the lead and do something stupid which gets you into trouble.” Most men would agree, if you are wise, you should just agree. I am a dog!

If you could be anybody in the world (alive or dead) who would you be and why?

Leonardo Di Caprio – The guy is a hero
