My self-summary
Please note, I do actually smile a lot but it seems that it's yet to be caught on camera. I don't really take myself (or this profile) too seriously IRL and can be quite dry (think stems from being northern). Usually rushing between screenings, roof terraces, cafes, parties and picnics. Other times resting with a good book, radio or a spot of vinyl.

Over the years I've acquired a variety of (potentially?) useful skills - lifesaving, rabbit skinning, baking elaborate cakes, boxing, phonetics, knot making, cocktail making, learning brewing, clothes making, antique dealing...

Day job doing PR/Digital Online stuff and freelance work as a writer - journalism (film, music, fashion, design), scripts, writing kids book...
What I’m doing with my life
gallery musings, bike riding, lurking in book stores, eating cake, cine-8 filming, exploring, screenings, writing in my notebook, swimming outdoors, running, seaside/country jaunts, cooking too much food for friends, collecting maps, knitting, European city visits, real ale sampling, market strolling, long rambling walks...

The opening credits to David Lynch's Lost Highway always make me happy.

Books - the good ol' Russians, new journalism, post-structuralism, wrote dissertation on Bukowski. Currently reading about semiotics and the history of hip hop (sadly two different books)
Food - love to cook but also like to find new foods to try around London. Recommendations welcome.
Six things I could never do without
nicotine, valium, vicodin, marijuana, ecstasy and alcohol

this question
