What's the worst job you've ever had?
When I was 15 my first job was a Saturday boy in a butcher's. The only reason I wanted to work there was because my friend did. I lasted a couple of weeks before myself and the boss realised I wasn't butcher material
Have you got any unusual habits?
I drive past RAF Brize Norton every day going to and from work, and I'm becoming strangely fascinated with all the planes flying overhead.
Who is your hero and why?
Steve Jobs and Michael Eavis. The way Steve Jobs and Apple entered the mobile phone market with no track record and just completely dominated it was stunning, and they continue to make products that defy expectations. Michael Eavis because Glastonbury remains a shining light in a saturated festival market, and my favourite festival by a long way.
What book are you reading at the moment or tell us your favourite?
I read the book by John Niven, 'The Second Coming' which is all about the return of Jesus where he goes on The X Factor. It's hilarious, but not for the faint of heart.
What was the last film you watched?
Steven Seagal classic Under Siege.
First single you ever bought?
First single was the theme song from Friends by The Rembrants.
Facebook or Twitter? (And what is your twitter handle/name?)
I think they're both great for different things. Twitter probably just wins though because it's so instant @joeschiavon
