Who: Gavin King

Job title: TropicGroup managing director and editor

Likes: Listening to Dylan, Kendrick and Radiohead on shuffle, eating Portuguese tarts, reading books, writing drafts of unfinished novels and running half-marathons. 

About Gavin: He's been a music journalist, street press editor, newspaper chief-of-staff, politician and media startup co-founder, and once did a sojourn in the remote Central Australian desert where he convinced legendary musos Peter Garrett and Paul Kelly to help launch a recording studio, but that's a long story to be told over several coffees and, if you're lucky, a Portuguese tart (or two).
