What was your first job? Stunt man for FHM. No, really! Sadly the job didn’t last long - funnily enough they had some issues with employee insurance cover.
What’s been your worst job interview? I can’t say I’ve had a bad interview, but the most interesting was probably for the above. I had to make a video and decided to jump a friend’s Ford Sierra through my parents’ old caravan. I got the job, but it took ages to clear up the mess!
What was the first music single you bought? I think it was the Ghostbusters theme tune.
What is the most rewarding part of your job? Seeing a product evolve from concept to being on the retail shelf - you can’t beat it.
What is the least rewarding part? It can be pretty heartbreaking when a product we’re passionate about doesn’t make it on to retail shelves.
What is your motto in life? Don’t take no for an answer. And always, always have fun!
If you were allowed one dream perk, what would it be? It’d be a zip wire from home to work. That would certainly get the heart rate going!
Do you have any phobias? Hippopotom-onstrosesquippe-daliophobia - the fear of long words.
If you could change one thing in grocery, what would it be? Apart from organising my own planogram, I would like more people to understand the benefits of dairy.
What luxury would you have on a desert island? A helicopter, so I could get my friends and family over too.
What animal most reflects your personality? A spaniel: excitable, eager and sometimes a bit overenthusiastic!
What has been the most embarrassing moment in your life? One that springs to mind was at my wife’s sister’s wedding. I managed to tread on the bride’s veil while she was walking past me, ripping it from her head and pulling her lovely hairdo out entirely!
Which celebrity would you most like to work with and why? I’d love to work with Jamie Oliver to help educate people on the healthy, naturally occurring sugars found in milk (called lactose). Jamie, give me a call!
What would your death row meal be? A roast beef dinner would probably get my vote.
