What’s a typical day for you at Seven League?
There are just two things typical about my 7L day: (1) My brisk morning cycle from home in Wandsworth to 7L HQ in Angel (2) The return leg. The rest in-between is anything but typical and that’s what makes it fun.
What’s the best thing about your job?
The clients, the people and the results. I consider myself lucky to be working with some of the biggest names in sport in a sector that continues to grow and with some of the smartest people in the business. I rarely meet someone with the same job.
Favourite future tech?
It’s between ‘Into the Wild’, ‘Gladiator’ and ‘The Rock’ – three vastly different films. Don’t judge me.
Sports positions played?
Treatment room…… no, seriously. Otherwise right wing or left wing (football/hockey), striker (football), full-back (rugby), ball finder (golf). Versatile & used to have a sharp turn of pace before several crippling injuries.
Favourite arcade game?
I wish I’d…
listed a better film above.
