What I'm listening to: I'm a jazz lover and listen to jazz all day while working in my studio at PMQ. I like a range of classic, fusion and vocal jazz, and blues. My all-time favourite vocal jazz singers are Ella Fitzgerald, Danielle Darrieux, Stacey Kent, Diana Krall, Norah Jones and Joanna Wang. The only exception is on rainy days; then I play classical music, especially violin concertos.

What I'm reading: the interesting, sad and engaging Marie Antoinette: The Journey by Antonia Fraser. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys history and biographies.

What I'm watching: I'm very picky about movies. However, I'm never disappointed by anything by Pedro Almodóvar. The most recent one I saw, Wild Tales, was co-produced by Almodóvar and directed by Damián Szifron. It's a wickedly funny black comedy and the best movie I've seen this year.

What artists I'm following: Yoshitomo Nara is my long-time favourite. I love his heartfelt, contemporary work, which is as touching as poetry.

What websites I'm visiting: I spend a lot of time on the Time Out and Tripadvisor websites. They're the go-to resources when planning a holiday or just dreaming about one.
