A data person good at words. Skilled encapsulator of contradictions in terms. Lousy footballer, inept golfer: still plugging away at the former. Impervious to film other than that time I was caught explaining to an audience disguised as Ethan Hawke/hand-me-down D'Artagnan about the one that got away. Once got to the final of a TV quiz show you've never heard of, losing £4,000 to a man named Norman who appeared to be drunk. Motto: always have to mind something to keep whatever bad day you're having in perspective.
