I like watching cricket and nearly getting killed while mountaineering.
I’m obsessed with hunting the Aurora Borealis. Finally got to see it in 2016 on Skye. Before I headed out to the wilds, I got my priorities right and ate a massive slice of carrot cake first.
I’m great at creating multicoloured cheeseboards.
My musical tastes are very eclectic, so everything I listen to is sure to annoy someone.
The Martian is a great film, because when you’re stranded all alone on a planet with a load of 70s disco music, you know things must get better.

I grew up in Marple, a picturesque little place on the edge of Manchester that Agatha Christie once visited. It has lots of nice canals that are regularly dredged to remove the shopping trolleys.
I support Manchester United, the England cricket team and the Old Stopfordians underwater darts team.
I still bear the scar from an injection in my bottom as a baby.
Working for Axonn is brilliant because I get to write for a living. This is great because I’m rubbish at everything else unless it involves guns.
I’m a six-times uncle and twice great-uncle. I live with someone else’s cats, one of which keeps cutting himself and bleeding everywhere.
My favourite headline I’ve ever written was:
Hitler’s Carpet Found in Yorkshire
