A minute with Kevin Brown, Founder of Minabocks digital marketing agency


Where do you live?
I live in Strovolos, Nicosia, with my wife, daughter and two dogs.

What did you have for breakfast?
Half a pot of black coffee.

Describe your perfect day
I wake up to one of my articles published in the paper. Then take my family to spend the day at the arcade. We ride a train and bumper cars and then go for hamburgers. My toddler decides she will be compliant all day… lol

Best childhood memory?
Riding buses with my mom through the jungles in Central America.

What is always in your fridge?
My daughter’s Galataki.

What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?
Teletubbies Say Eh-Oh , Gangster Rap from the 90s, a lot of Les Claypool this month and my band Bloom Φields practice sessions.

What’s your spirit animal?
I am not totally clear on what this question means in relation to me… Can I answer – no?

What are you most proud of?
My daughter.

What movie scene has really stayed with you?
“If it ain’t that piece of paper, there’s some other choice they’re gonna try and make for you. You gotta do what Randall Pink Floyd wants to do man. Let me tell you this, the older you do get the more rules they’re gonna try to get you to follow. You just gotta keep livin’ man, L-I-V-I-N.” ~Wooderson.

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
Lady Gaga – for sure. We would have a blast together.

If you could time travel when/where would you go?
I am a time traveler. I am a weirdo from Americas 90s – so I guess the answer is very obviously – Cyprus 2022.

What is your greatest fear?
Falling. Many people think I am afraid of heights. I am not. I am afraid of falling.

What would you say to your 18-year-old self?
Bro, put on a helmet, keep a journal and hang on tight – it’s gonna be a wild ride. Oh.. and don’t forget to laugh.

Name the one thing that would stop you dating someone
My commitment to my wife.

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
Same thing I do everyday I guess… because, for me, the world always has the potential to end tomorrow…. But I don’t let that stop me.

Kevin is the founder of digital marketing agency Minabocks.
