1) What is your name and where do you live?
Tommy Hatto and I live in Wiltshire, England.
2) What is your favourite soulventure?
3) What’s something that no-one would guess about you?
I trained in MMA, mix of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Krav Maga and Kickboxing.
4) What single thing would improve the quality of your life?
Less phone interaction. To be fair, I’m quite good at not being consumed by using my phone all the time but I’m still guilty of it.
5) If you could be doing anything, anywhere, right now, what would it be?
Spending a day at the beach with my friends. Laughing, eating, surfing and then lighting a fire at night and just having good conversation.
Writing my book. It’s about following the path to really owning yourself and that pursuit of happiness. I’ve been so lucky to have had the opportunities I’ve had with my career but with this particular project, it’s a sentiment of my personal journey and hopefully will reach and help others going through the same.
7) Who do you most admire and why?
My parents. I grew up in a working class family, where they both worked 2 jobs each, 7 days a week, to support me and my brother.
8) Best kiss of your life?
9) What is a new skill you’d like to learn (and why?)
I’m that guy who wants to learn everything and do everything! In the last year, I’ve learnt (and still learning) different languages, how to play the guitar etc. I think it comes down to challenging myself and bettering myself. I would love to learn a trade and become more self-sufficient.
10) Woods, mountain, city or sea?
11) If you could say one thing to lots of people, what would it be?
12) What makes you happy?
The people in my life being happy. I read this quote from Paul Walker, which said
‘You know, all that really matters is that the people you love are happy and healthy. Everything else is just sprinkles on the sundae.’
That resonates with me.
13) What is your guiltiest pleasure?
Netflix binging. I rarely watch TV or binge-watch, but when I do – man, it feels so good.
