British transplant, extradited from London in 2007 for a crime I
didn't commit, I escaped to the Los Angeles underground. I've been
surviving as a soldier of fortune but to be honest with you it's

What I’m doing with my life
I've taken to playing this to myself every morning
Now he clearly had a lot of issues but I think he got this right,
put a ding in the universe or some such. The periods of my life
where I've been happiest I've been doing things for other people;
expedition to Belize in 98 and follow up work with training
venturers for their trips. Non-proft work in Film & TV and most
recently commissioning documentaries and shows for a pro-social
digital network. If it all sounds a bit heavy then I'm probably not

I’m really good at
DIY, self-help, philosophical conversations and talking rubbish.
More recently I've become good at attempting things my body isn't

The first things people usually notice about me
It sounds stupid, but my shoulders and my big feet - some have

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Increasingly I think I have terrible taste in music, which probably
is a problem considering I worked in music for almost 5 years in
I used to love incredibly rich food; I'd be the one ordering 3
courses of heart attacks. Since moving to LA I've taken a new lease

Though I still love pizza delivery, bbq, steak dinners and
The six things I could never do without
books, the internet, gadgets, my phone, movies and friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
not speaking to anyone who has a typical Friday night - unless is
work related - seriously! I'm also confused because Thursday was
the new Friday, which then made Friday the new Saturday, but
someone recently told me hump day is the new Thursday, which
makes... Friday Sunday night, which means I'm depressed because
it's work tomorrow; can someone help?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is on Edward Snowden's laptop
You should message me if
you're interested in pointless conversations about what you would
do if you ruled the world.
If you feel like you've been in LA for a while but haven't seen the
best of it.
