Best Holiday

That has got to be my ‘Gap Yah’ when I was 18. I travelled the world for six months by myself, learning a lot along the way. Although it’s tough to pick I think I’d go with Buenos Aires as the highlight.

Best Album

The Marshall Mathers LP was the soundtrack of my youth, and continues to resonate today.

Best Film

The Wolf of Wall Street. DiCaprio and Jonah Hill are hilarious side by side, and who can forget Matthew McConaughey’s now iconic chest bump and humming scene.

BeckhamBest Sporting Experience

This one’s easy. I sat on the halfway line at Selhurst Park when Becks scored that goal from the halfway line. I turned around to grab the closest person next to me to celebrate and it happened to be Sir Bobby Charlton. I was only 8 years old. What a day! Unforgettable stuff.

Best Book

“Hooked” by Nir Eyal. It’s a fantastic book about helping you create habit forming products.

Best Bet

It was a 10 fold accumulator on over 1.5 goals. I vividly remember waiting for the last goal I needed in a Notts County game. They kept me waiting but clinched it in the 89th min. *Chaaaa-ching*!
