I was no more than a baby when I was born, and grew up as a kid in Islington, North London first wanting to be a vet, then a gymnast, then a dinosaur. I also wanted to join a circus but couldn't find one that had fallen apart.
When I left school I became a storyboard artist creating TV ads for leading advertising agencies in London. I never did get to be a vet. Or a gymnast. Or a dinosaur. But I can still do a back-flip while tossing a pancake, as long as the wind is blowing in the right direction.
And as for the circus? I'm still looking!
