My first and last love is language. Words, and the form in which they are combined, form the source code of all human communications. Nothing presents a greater challenge – or greater joy – than capturing the elusive essence of an idea and expressing it in a manner both elegant and effective. I can mostly be found staring down the barrel of a blank page or buried in a dusty thesaurus, literary obscurity or pulsating postmodern meta-novel. Language is also a constantly shapeshifting beast so I’m just as likely to be feasting upon all the marvellous mutations and astonishing abominations the interwebs can muster.
