Who is your favourite composer?

Mozart. His music has an honest transparency that bypasses any cerebral thought and speaks

directly to your emotions. Also, his chocolate liqueur tastes great with ice.

To which music do you love to dance?

Play any 70’s Soul, Funk, R&B or Disco number and I’ll be grooving up a storm.

Time Machine or Magic Wand?

A Magic Wand, for sure - who hasn’t picked up a pencil immediately after watching Harry Potter and

chanted ‘Expelliarmus’.
