1. How would you describe your hometown? I’m from Llangadog in South Wales. Idyllic. Magical. A great place to grow up. A great place to escape from.

2. What brought you to Japan? My wife. She was my girlfriend in London and I followed her back to Japan in 1999 — an international stalker! I was 19, thinner and cuter in those days, so she married me.
