What was the best birthday present you ever received, and why?

It was 1993, and my Mum bought me my very first pair of Dr Martens. They were beautiful (and functional) olive green, suede shoes.

What smell do you find irresistible?

I would have to say the freesia flower; so fresh and so sweet.

What is your least favourite thing about humanity?

Inequality in any context. Those who discriminate and/or fuel ignorant thinking, are not my kind of people.

What's something only your family knows about you?

Probably my nickname as a child, which was Barley Sugar, or Barles for short.

You are a new addition to the crayon box. What colour are you, and why?

My heart says black, because black is the best. But I could also be the graffiti crayon, a chaotic melting pot of colour looking to make a statement.
