I was born and brought up in the Midlands. Since leaving home for university I've lived in Manchester, Rome and Birmingham before ending up in London. During my time as a student I went through the obligatory know-it-all phase before reading Montaigne and realising I didn't know anything. This worried me until I discovered no-one else knew anything either. Later still I realised that some people spend their lives destroying what wisdom they were born with.
In my spare time I write things and read things.
I like swimming and trees.
Dishonesty irritates me though I'm a hypocrite too, like 90% of us.
I walk past Buckingham Palace quite frequently.
