Interests and Personality

BiographyGrew up copying spaceships out of comics and never really grew out of it. Moved around a lot (London, Derbyshire, Leeds) but am now settled down in Nottingham (I'm pretty good at avoiding the drive-bys) with my wife Helen who's due to have a baby at Christmas. I'm writing this on 21st of Dec so it's all really scary and exciting at the moment!! Any day now I’m going to have a baby! Blimey!! Deep breaths, calm thoughts, try not to panic…
InterestsDo I have to put art? Art. Writing, photography (we do the best wedding photography ever!), drinking too much beer, other people - no wait, does that sound poncy? Really like travelling - especially Eastern Europe (all that brilliant gothic architecture, cold weather and really, really cool little cellar bars).
MusicLots of recent stuff that I really like - Dirty Pretty Things, the new Razorlight album, Holloways, Cold War Kids, Arctics, Gossip. Also like bluesy stuff - Seasick Steve (old school blues singer), Alabamma 3 (saw them recently at a really small venue in Nottm), Robert Johnson, Billie Holiday etc. But... also love all those big-haired soft rock singers from the 80s (screaming out BonJovi lyrics at 3am - can't beat it!). In fact I like a lot of stuff from the 80s. Boom Shake the Room. Oh god - and I started off so well!
FilmsSinging in the Rain! Big Lebowski, (whilst drinking White Russians), Withnail and I (whilst drinking everything in the house), um..The Muppet Movie...Peter Greenaway. Empire Strikes Back (I'm a nerd). Anything French. Kids movies - actually it's a good thing that I'm about to have a kid as it gives me a cover story for owning all these cartoons.
TelevisionOk right I'm getting the hang of this now... Black Books, Spaced, Cartoons, Dr Who (told you I was a nerd), 24 (when it makes sense), Battlestar Galactica (which never makes sense but I like all the pretty colours). The muppets, even that one with the lighthouse and the dog - Fraggles! Even Fraggles.
BooksKids books (I'm trying to write one so that's my excuse), Douglas Adams, PG Wodehouse. Comics - anyone read Garth Ennis? Love the Preacher series (apparently they're making a TV show, don't know if that works), Frank Miller (all the Sin City stuff), and Ultimate Spiderman! Yay!
HeroesSpiderman? Think of someone better. Think of someone better. Think of someone better. Think of someone better. Think of someone better. Nope. Just superheroes, I'm extremely shallow.


Cambridge Art Fair I'm exhibiting here for the first time, it takes place between 4th June - 7th June 2009. Big, well attended event and well worth a visit (they have a vineyard too!) 20th June - exhibiting at the Brick Lane Gallery in London ( as part of Art Addict display.
