Born in Bristol, living in West London. Seized by the need to write (out loud!), be it songs or poems. Not giving up anytime soon.

Samples (No More Recommendations)

My Ever Growing Content Mountain No more recommendations for my spreadsheets are out of control and your well-meaning notes and my hopeless reminders are in complete overflow. No more recommendations for my window is now closed to the lowdown on YouTube videos and Hollywood films or any new televisual shows. No more recommendations and thank you for your incessant inputs all of which I will respectfully leave and painfully but officially overlook. No more recommendations will be considered for any shows no matter how critically crowned or if the programme is about to be let go. No more recommendations until I once again seek your learned counsel regarding content I must scrutinise to make my life seem so much more substantial. No more recommendations until I’ve asked you all to resubmit those overlong box sets or off-kilter comedies or Scandi dramas you think I shouldn’t miss. No more recommendations and please don’t ever mention royal reconstructions or Richard Curtis flicks which you’re convinced are in need of my attention. No more recommendations and please note until that time comes around I will be unable to process any further consumption proposals until I’ve put my missive round. No more recommendations and I thank you for your understanding in this most pressing of cultural matters as I deal with my ever-growing content mountain.
