By day somebody who makes maps, by night a very amateur music journalist, I am a life long lover of music, despite having no musical talent beyond appreciation. I once wanted to be a news journalist but discovered I was too nice so started writing about music instead. Thankfully my musical tastes have moved on from the 2006 indie of my teenage years and include most things that involve folk, punk, ska and, yes, indie (often all at once). Other hobbies include reading in coffee shops, cycling, making things and just generally being unwittingly pretentious.
