About me

Passionate people person with a deep and abiding love of punning news headlines. There’s little more joyous in my life than an especially witty, alliterative and laugh out loud headline. Or chatting late at night with friends, both great wordsmiths, about the name of a nearby London road junction…

“It”s definitely a circus, “says one.

“Holborn?” says the other. “Piccadilly, Oxford?” I venture. “No…”

We glance at each other, “Billy Smart’s – got to be.” “Chipperfield, it’s a classic.”

Our common friend winces. “Well, you did ask for that,” says the other. “I mean, really. That was a gift. You didn’t think we actually knew the answer, did you? Great, great opportunity,” I sighed.

I’m new to 26 but had a great time at a 26 event last year and looking forward to some good ones ahead.
