Name, admitted age and how old you feel?
David Masters. I’m 29, but five years old inside. I’m still Gazing in wonder and curiosity at this big wide world.
Canuck or Yankee? or Other?
British, though I spend a lot of my time thinking in American, as many of my clients are based in the US.
What do you do as a freelancer?
I write, spinning words into gold. My main income comes from business blogging. I also do some journalism, some copywriting, and some ebook writing.
Still employed or freelance all the way? Or still dreaming of freelancing?
I freelance fulltime.
What song are you currently listening to over and over and over again?
Let Yourself by Martyn Joseph. I’m spending a lot of time with the line “Let yourself be quietly drawn by the stronger call of what you really love,” which Joseph borrowed from Rumi. I find Rumi a source of vitality in my life and my writing.
Who was the last person you said “I love you” to?
Siona, my beautiful wife.
How would you describe yourself? Glass half-full or half-empty?
The glass broke a long time ago. I drink straight from the wellspring.
Do you have a private stash of junk food? If so, where do you hide it?
I keep a bar of chocolate in the kitchen cupboard.
Chocolate or chips?
Dark chocolate. The more cocoa the better.
iOS or Android?
PC or Mac?
I jumped from Linux to Mac a couple of months ago. I love the flexibility of Linux, but switching to a Mac is like going from a kit car to a Rolls Royce.
Best vacation ever?
The next one. I love every holiday. I feel a deep affinity to the sea and being in the UK, most holidays are at the beach.
What’s one item on your bucket list?
To write and publish a novel.
What do you constantly tell your children to stop doing that you do yourself?
I don’t yet have children, but if I do, I want to give them encouragement for effort rather than achievements. I struggle to do that with myself.
Could you give up your cell phone for a week?
I rarely use my cell phone. I stay in touch with clients using email, Skype and Google Hangouts. I’d gladly live in a world without cell phones.
