My new best friend Dave
Meet 'Sombrero Dave' (as I've nicknamed him), an American investment banker from Massachusetts. He has lots of spare cash and wants to invest in British 'New Media'.
[He was involved in NBC's $350million deal to buy Sparrowhawk Media!!]
I have hooked him up with Hincksy's email address.
'Sombrero Dave' is quite a character and oozes charm (especially when the ladies are around). He was particularly impressed by the kind of annual budget I have to play around with and has been sharing his observations on media with me over late-night Grand Margaritas (although obviously I've been sticking to cherry colas).
It is so fresh to hear ideas from people who don't work in television - and who are successful in their own right in their own country.
Don't tell anyone, but when I grow up, I'd quite like to be like Sombrero Dave.
