Favourite film: The Labyrinth – amazing puppetry, fantastic 80s songs & David Bowie in tights, what’s not to like!

Favourite band: This is too hard! I love music & like so many different bands & styles. I’d love someone go through my iPod & try to make sense of what my music taste actually is!

A piece of wisdom: “Be the change you want to see in the world.” Gandhi said this and I encourage you all to apply this to every area of your life & make things better!
