I was born in 1973 and grew up in Gretton, a small village in north Northamptonshire. Although I escaped to London in my twenties and thirties, I now live in Rutland with my wife Saskia, my children Ben and Grace, and a cat called Myla.  I run my own consultancy specialising in internal communications, an obscure dark art in the corporate world that you quite possibly haven’t heard of.

When not building things for my children or fixing things my children have destroyed, I spend my remaining free time writing, hillwalking, taking photographs or trying to tame our garden. Getting a great night’s sleep continues to be one of my main life goals.
