My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Life is what you make of it.
Q. Which living person do you most admire?
A. Does Wiley Coyote count? I mean, I know he's a cartoon, but you've got to admire him for never giving up on catching that road runner.
Q. What’s your best quality?
A. Tenacity. Once I set my mind to something I become single-minded to the point of obsession.
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. Playing the piano.
Q. What’s your greatest fear?
A. Heights - it might sound crazy (especially as I was a pilot for 21 years) but I'm terrified by heights. The worst bit about flying aircraft was always climbing the ladder to get in - once I was inside, I was fine. I think this was because the height then became more like depth and I was OK with that.
