My self-summary
I am a secondary school teacher who moved to Essex from Jersey about 5 years ago. I love music, film, tv, and books, although it is pretty difficult to find time to do it all! I have a pretty sarcastic sense of humour which does not translate well to text. Rest assured, I am hilarious in person.
What I’m doing with my life
I bought a flat a couple of years ago after moving to a job I love. I live alone which is great, but would go crazy if I didn't have some good friends near me.
I’m really good at
I guess music would be my main "thing," I've been doing it since I was little. It's something I've always enjoyed, and I've been lucky enough to find a career where I can continue to use it. I'm also very lucky to be working with some very talented kids, meaning I get to pick fun music to conduct at concerts.

The six things I could never do without
I don't know about six things, but recently I've realised I can't live without coffee. That one crept up on me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think a lot about the pithy one-liners that I could have used that day, but was too slow to come up with on the spot.
On a typical Friday night I am
It does depend on the week. It is likely that I would be either at the pub or watching a movie with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm Batman. Seriously. Don't tell anyone.
