My self-summary
Idiotic photigrapher, writer and Henry Rollins wannabe constantly consumed by arty farty and wooly liberal ideas.
What I’m doing with my life
Just finished Masters degree in Digital Journalism while still selling my soul part time to Tesco between doing various dubiously journalistic based things.

I blog about alternative music and photograph artists A LOT. You can have a look if you'd like: or check out the media analysis podcast me and my uni chums run. We make points and swear:
I’m really good at
Articulate moral outrage! I'm great at that.
The first things people usually notice about me
I think we have to roll with the obvious here. It's usually the ginger hair. And then the beard. Usually followed by some comment along the 'you have a ginger beard line'.

I can't imagine what I'd do without such people to remind me of it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot, though truth be told its more non-fiction and articles than fiction these days but among my favorites are Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, Leonard Cohen, Stephen Fry, Steig Larson, George Fraser. Jasper Fforde, Charlotte and Emily Bronte, Mary Shelly, Billy Bryson, David Eddings, Christopher Brookmyre, Lillian Braun...that's scratching the surface anyway.

Films is an odd one I love most of what I've seen but tend to see very little. I did get HEAVILY into Star Wars as kid and I've developed a thing for the Batman films as I got slightly older. Other than that just anything of real quality.

Music is a LONG one. My roots lie orignially in metal though most metal is terrible. I grew more into hardcore, punk and its various offshots from heavy music which is where my real loves lie. But I'm also really into jazz, classic rock and pop, electronic music, progressive music and more or less everything in between.

To give a vague idea of music my favorite artists include: Tom Waits, Sikth, The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Beautiful South, Thrice, Miles Davis, Converge, The Beatles, Jeff Buckley, Pink Floyd, Deftones, Devin Townsend, Aphex Twin, *shels, Shania Twain, Prince, John Coltrane, TesseracT, Bernhoft, Botch, Shadowboxer, Imogen Heap, Ian Dury & The Blockheads, Justin Timberlake and Leonard Cohen and a whole world of other artists.
The six things I could never do without
Art in its multitude of various forms (music, writing, visual forms)
Diet Coke
Interesting and wind swept companions.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All da stuff.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working unfortunately as it's one of my contracted shifts.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've struggled reasonably heavily with depression in the past. Over the last couple of years I've gotten a really good hold on it and its not so much of an issue. But it's not something I'd ever hide from anyone. It is what it is.
You should message me if
You feel so inclined. I'm always incredibly excited to meet new, interesting and windswept people.
