What's the best advice you've ever been given?
Never be afraid to ask anything of anyone.
What do you like most about your job?
When I was young I used to pull things apart to find out how they worked and I think being a press officer is an extension of this. I like to know what is going on, why things are happening and how I can tell people about it.
Do you have a favourite film? There are plenty of films I have really liked and could watch again and again but if pushed, Raiders of the Lost Ark is my favourite. It is just brilliant - there are chases, bad guys and well...just about everything you could want in a film. I once met someone who hadn't seen it and that is frankly wrong.
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
I wanted to be a pilot with the Red Arrows
Is there an item you couldn't live without, if so, what?
A watch - I always feel a bit lost if I have forgotten it.
Is there a song/album or piece of music you always go back to? Faithless - Insomnia is a song that just makes you want to dance and I can't.
What's in your pockets right now: My mobile, car keys and a ticket from this year's World Darts Championship.
