Outgoing and fun, he also likes cockfights, shopping in Shibuya, and skinny women with breasts that stand up and say "Hello!". He also has a keen interest in popular culture, a passion for hard liquor, and wishes all puritans a slow and painful death. Lewis Colston works as Head of Promotion / A&R at Playground Music Denmark, and also does some parties with that Tom Collins guy.
