About Me


Courtesy Emily and Tash


I’m a 28 year old History graduate, born and brought up in London and now living in Chicago. I studied at Queens Park Community School and then Gonville and Caius college, Cambridge. Sometimes I write about this.

At the moment I’m a Program Manager for Groupon, after various positions in their London office since 2011. Before that, I was a researcher for Melissa Benn on her (awesome) book, School Wars.

Other things: each year I try and read at least one more book than the year before. You can follow my success or failure on Goodreads. This blog doesn’t claim to be interesting – I write it mostly to outsource my own long-term memory. I am an atheist. I drink tea out of a London Overground mug.
