I'm interested in creative writing and applying writing to different mediums such as soundscapes, music and visuals. I've always been curious about what makes a community tick, and that interest has led me to be involved in the life of the neighbourhoods I've lived and worked in since growing up in Ladywood, Birmingham, in the late '70s/early '80s. I have ten years' experience working in local and national charities. I have some previous experience of working in local newspapers and radio. I've lived, studied and worked in parts of Merseyside, Greater Manchester and the West Midlands on the way. Birmingham City Football Club is in my DNA, for better or for (mostly) worse. I'm a dad, a husband and a poor disciple of DIY. I now live in Sutton Coldfield and when I'm not working or looking after my family, I enjoy writing/listening to poetry and photography. Thanks for dropping by.
