My self-summary
A comedy nerd with a penchant for 90's hip-hop and filmmaking. One day I'll figure out a way of combining all three to create a masterpiece of modern cinema.

If I could have the ideal life, it would be to travel the world, trying all the local cuisines and writing about them. Clearly I aspire to be like Anthony Bourdain.
What I’m doing with my life
I recently lived in Japan teaching English to kids of all ages, who frequently mistook me for a 40-year-old Chinese man (don’t try to make sense of it). I moved back to England to focus on what I really wanted to do though, which is writing in some capacity.

Currently I’m the marketing manager of a digital advertising agency. It means I now get to write daily, use social media as part of my job, and go to events showcasing virtual reality headsets. Suffice it to say, I am very much enjoying what I do.

In my free time I've been taking improv comedy classes, which have been ridiculously fun. I’m enjoying them so much that I even used my summer holiday to take some extra classes in New York.
I’m really good at
Remembering pretty much all the lyrics to a song after only hearing it once. I have my love of hip-hop to thank for that!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I've been gravitating toward short story collections when picking books to read lately. However, these are the books I've enjoyed most in recent years - Slaughterhouse-Five, Lolita, Norwegian Wood, Between the World and Me, Drown.

Movies: As someone who went to film school, everyone expects me to have a favourite. Of course, it's impossible for me to pick! These are the ones I rewatch most - The Graduate, Lost In Translation, Back to the Future, Do the Right Thing, Almost Famous, Pan's Labyrinth, Groundhog Day.

Television: Community, Parks and Recreation, Arrested Development, The Wire, Broad City, Saturday Night Live, Adventure Time, 30 Rock, Master of None.

Music: Prince, The Black Keys, Childish Gambino, Sam Cooke, Bob Dylan, Fleetwood Mac, The Roots, A Tribe Called Quest.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What the best route would be for travelling across all 50 states in America.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
A friend and I once auditioned for the X-Factor as a joke and were so bad that they considered putting us through.
You should message me if
You have a similar taste to mine. You like to travel and see the world. You can tell me a groan worthy pun style joke because they're my favourite.
