What I do

I help organisations inspire belief and encourage action. And select the best songs on Spotify. 

Why I do it

Words and story have long fascinated, inspired and encouraged me. Childhood adventures transformed parts of rural Northumberland into the Shire. A teenage Kerouac obsession sent me to California to discover San Louis Obispo for myself. The Guardian's intellegence and politics (with a little input from Hunter S Thompson) set an initial career in journalism in motion. Words and story continue to inspire me and I'm here to inspire others through them.

Why do I pick the best songs? Impeccable taste.
