I'm not an all-knowing sage, but I've realised a couple of things in life:
* If you don't piss off a couple of people every now and then, you're probably not living your life right.
* The most physically beautiful people in the world will probably never really know if they're interesting or not.
* There are few things finer in life than good coffee and a brand new pair of socks.
I know a little about a lot and lot about a little and I enjoy meeting people who walk different paths than I do.
I'm just an ambitious guy trying to find the right balance between fighting hard for the things I want out of life and taking enough time out to enjoy them.
When I was younger I wanted to study quantum physics and fly a Harrier jump jet. Then I discovered playing guitar and put a halt on my search for sub atomic particles to get my degree and tour the UK and Europe for a few years in a band.
Now I make pop songs for people to enjoy and connect to. I feel pretty lucky because I really truly love what I do.
When I've had my fill of rock and roll misadventure and I need to wind down I like to run, practice Qigong or drink green tea and read about what's going on in the world. I take an active interest in science and tech, Eastern philosophy, civil liberties, videos of puppies, socialised medicine, the environment and all that good stuff. Also Die Hard.
