meHi! I was born in Nottingham (UK) in January 1979. I grew up in Loughborough, Leicestershire, and studied Art History and Italian at APU in Cambridge and the Università di Pavia. After graduating I spent several years living in Florence, during which time I worked as a writer, translator, English teacher, Art History lecturer, tour guide and deejay. More importantly I met my wife there. I moved to New York in 2007 after being accepted by the Museum of Modern Art for its internship program. For the last six years I have worked almost solely in graphic design while continuing to write occasionally. My writing has appeared on In Bed With Maradona, Inutile and British Ideas Corporation.

I live with my wife in Manhattan. I collect football shirts and used vinyl. My favourite television show is Columbo. I enjoy egg creams and Campari Soda. I don’t drive.
