I am radio journalist working for the BBC in London. I'm into sound, stories and field recording. Music obsesses me, I play piano an violin and I'm currently trying to record an album with my band. I try to go to as many live gigs as possible and like to see lots of music when I'm travelling in other cities. Like most journalists I'm a frustrated writer, I write awful poetry and am very greedy with books. My job allows me to indulge all my passions, as it lets me engage with art, politics, history, music and economics. I should be an easy guest, I like cooking and am happy to pitch in with housework to keep the place looking nice.
