1 Describe yourself in three words?

Rugged. Arty. Hori.

2 Do you have a nickname, and if so, what's the story behind it?

I had the nickname Snoop when I started high school. At boarding school the seniors would nickname new kids on their first day to make it easier to remember everyone - I was a tall scrawny lanky Snoop Dogg lookalike.

3 Tell us something that most people don't know about you?

I am a seafood fiend. If there was a fridge full of all the most amazing foods you could think of, even leftovers cooked by the best chefs on earth, I would go straight for the bowl of shelled oysters or kinas.

Find a job that doesn't feel like a job.

Sin City-inspired fantasy action set in the 80s - gotta have Leo DiCaprio or Tom Hardy in the lead.

Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings - Give the people what they want.

Scuba dive charters.
