My self-summary
Forever torn between the heady pound of the city streets with their concrete dreams, and the wild green world beyond.

I love to rummage around my allotment waiting for green things to spring forth, to dance until I collapse, to ride my bike fast down hills (and up them too), to sing with people, to get lost in new cities, and to conjure great food with friends.

Theatre always gets my heart pumping, and art sends my head spinning.
What I’m doing with my life
After several years working as a journalist in places like Iraq, Kurdistan and Palestine, I've just made a big career change. I'm learning the ropes (quite literally) of tree surgery. And absolutely loving swinging about among the branches!
I’m really good at
Clambering up trees
Whistling until my housemates want to kill me
Dancing until I'm the last standing
Cooking up a storm
Braving freezing waters
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love magical realism - Garcia Marquez, Arudhati Roy, Agualusa - and the great Russians - Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Bulgakov, Gogol. Oh and JG Ballard is a real favourite. Just finished My Name is Red by Orhan Pamuk... and it is wonderful.

Looking back at my latest listening history for the last few days I've listened to Prince, JS Bach, Kendrick Lamar, Jurassic 5, Janelle Monae, Roy Ayers, Jungle, FKA Twigs, Prokofiev, John Coltrane, Pharoah Sanders, Lindstrom, Chrome Sparks...

Films: Moon, Harvey (if you have seen, and don't like this film then you have no heart), Cool Hand Luke, 2046, The Science of Sleep, The King, The Master, 12 Angry men, and The Taste of Tea.
The six things I could never do without
Dancing like a maniac
Bikes, innit
A good, heated debate every now and then
Hot baths at regular intervals
Good food with great (or ridiculous) conversation
My garden
I spend a lot of time thinking about
escaping the city.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't help but eat pot noodles when drunk.
You should message me if
Just do it yo!
