Helping out with just about anything and everything – there’s not much that Agency Assistant Paddy can’t do! We thought today would be the perfect time to get to know him a little better.
Do you have any nicknames?
Does Paddy count as a nickname?!
What are 3 things on your bucket list?
I spent some time travelling and really loved Vietnam so in general I’d definitely like to travel some more in the future. Some things on my bucket list are:
– I’d like to see Paul Simon live as I’m a massive fan. There’s only Jackson Browne that I like more and I’ve already seen him. Frank Ocean would be another but I’m going to Parklife this year and he’s playing so I will get to see him then.
– The next thing on my bucket list would be to skydive. I absolutely hate heights and planes so this would be my worst nightmare but I really want to do it to push myself!
– The last one to tick off the list would probably be to play a game on Man City’s pitch – a bit of a long shot!
Favourite place in the world?
My favourite place in the world is my bed but I love the alternative sides to cities like the NQ in Manchester or Shoreditch and Camden in London.
Last book you read?
Marching Powder by Rusty Young. It’s a really good book about the life of an English man in a Bolivian prison.
Do you have any secret talents we should know about?
It’s not much of a secret but I can balance a ball on my head. I play football for a local team and spend a lot of time on the pitch or having a kick about.
Which four individuals, living or dead, would you like to eat dinner with the most?
James Brown because he’s the coolest man ever. Jim Royle from the TV programme The Royle Family. I love him and I think when I hit my 60’s I might turn into him!
Bob Marley would be another one he’s just top and I love everything about him.
I should probably invite a girl next, maybe Angelina Jolie – specifically her in Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
For the said meal above, what would be your perfect first course, main course and dessert, and drink?
Starter: Won Ton soup
Main: Duck Confit
Dessert: Either Angel Delight or rice pudding.
If you ruled the world, what would you change on Day 1?
If I ruled the world for one day, I would give everyone free health care. I would also ban the programme Loose Women, which I hate. Or I would make coats tax-free as I have LOADS of them and they’re my favourite thing to buy.
How are you enjoying/not enjoying your new job? (be careful how you answer now!)
I love taking photos and being involved in the creative side of things. Also, being in an environment that very few people get to see, with some really interesting people. I also love being able to learn cool new skills like editing photos and taking 360-degree videos in our amazing basement studio.
What’s the coolest thing you’re working on right now?
A big project is updating all the photos of our supporting artists. They have been coming in to our studio and I have been assisting on the photo shoots for their profile images. Something really cool I worked on this week was filming a YouTube skincare tutorial video with one our models, Thea.
