Profile Information

Arts Forms I'm Interested in:
Drama, Visual Arts, Music
About Me:
I am the press and marketing officer for Escape Artists, having joined in February 2009. Much of my time is spent working on the Syd Barrett Fund; it is me that writes the blog on the Social Arts Network.

Before EA I was a marketing assistant at the Hackney-based children’s theatre company Quicksilver.

I’m also involved in the running of the music news and reviews website www.roomthirteen.com, something I’ve done since June 2005, and between August and October 2009, worked for the Finborough Theatre in Earls Court as a press and marketing officer for a festival of new writing.

Some more information about me which may, or may not, be of interest:

I’ve attended more than 25 music festivals, including the last nine Reading or Leeds Festivals.
I once had a Foo Fighters review printed in the Independent.
I competed for England at the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester in an event called 100 metres for Elite Athletes with Disabilities, and since you ask, mine is sight.
I sponsor a monkey at Monkey World in Dorset called Arfur.
I once cycled from London to Berlin as a fundraiser for Scope – as good a way as any of getting to the 2006 World Cup.
I once went up the Empire State Building in thick fog, just so I could say I’d been there.
I’m a season ticket holder at Harlequins Rugby League (rugby league is the 13 man, vastly superior version of rugby for those who weren’t sure).
My football watching takes me to Griffin Park, home of League 1 side Brentford.

Life ambitions:

To climb a really big mountain.
Would love to try bobslay.
I’ve tried on a few occasions to start to write books, but often lack of time and a fairly poor attention span knocks that one on the head.
To go to a music festival outside of the UK.

The I Have Never Game

Since the 2010 version of the event I based this section of my London ramblings on is currently taking place, I thought I'd post this:Everyone should play the ‘I Have Never’ game on a semi regular basis.As games go its pretty self explanatory. Just as football is, when you break it down, a ball being controlled by the foot, unless that is you’re Thierry Henry trying to get France to the World Cup of course, the ‘I Have Never’ game involves, doing something that you’ve never done before.

Can I ask that, before reading this one, you read this entry first since that leads into this.



The same can be said for the likes of Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham and most other major cities in the UK, but one of the great luxuries of living in London is, as has been shown by our nights at The Bedford and Somerset House, a quick look through an event’s list in the paper or on the Internet can throw up… Continue
