Born in Derbyshire, I grew up in the Peak District and attended university in Sheffield. After spending four amazing years living in NZ, I returned to the UK and moved to Edinburgh to do a Masters in Publishing at Napier University.
Breaking Bad, Liverpool FC, motown, gin, gangster films.
Reality television, Piers Morgan, foie gras, unwarranted smugness/arrogance.

Best New Zealand Moment/Memory:
Hitchhiking around Northland on the back of a truck, while watching the sun go down over Hokianga Harbour.
Claim to Fame:
Played pool with (and beat) Michelle Rodriguez from The Fast and the Furious!
I’m pretty handy on the guitar.
There’s quite a few, but I’ll put three: Growing on Me by The Darkness, Never Gonna Give You Up by the Black Keys and Thunder Road by Bruce Springsteen.

My iPhone (not very original I know).
