I am almost 40 and go by the name Mills. I only ever wear shorts. I do this because I don’t believe in formality, I believe in being yourself all the time. For me, shorts represents being comfortable in my own skin. I wore them to 10 Downing Street and then again recently when I turned up pure mills.
I co-founded ustwo 15 years ago — one of the only privately owned digital product/service, games and investment design companies in the world. I am proud that is was in partnership with my best mate Sinx. We built the company we wanted to work at, and on the foundations of deep friendship. We are talking about this weekly on the JFDI podcast. I am especially proud of the culture of acceptance and togetherness that we have created. We refer to ustwo as a Fampany. Here is our Cultural Manifesto and a little video about us.
I respect so many people in this world but if I had to choose a few that have impacted me recently (this doesn’t mean I don’t utterly love and get inspired by so many more humans) then it would be Dem, Sam, Justin, Tamsin, David Hieatt, Nafisa, Ben, Rin, Rich, Alex, Robyn, Kodj, Mario, Grace, Sinx, Nicholas Jenkins Smith, Harry, Ryan, Isabel, Studio Something’s and our new CPO Sinead who is unquestioably the biggest game changer in ustwo’s history (I just don’t know any of her socials!).
