How long have you been involved with the Spark?
About three years now, although I did do a bit of writing for the mag in the early Naughties..
What’s your role at the Spark?
I do the odd bit of writing on the Social Change page.
When I say I write for the Spark people say...
“Ooh that’s interesting. I read a piece about such and such in it the other day.”
What are your particular interests / strengths/ focus?
I’m obsessed with sport, in particular football. And pop music.
Something that might surprise you about my job is...
Contrary to the popular opinion, most journalists (at least the ones I know ) are interested in positive stories about people. We even actively go out of our way to make people appear more articulate than they often are in the flesh too..
I know it’s been a good day when...
I keep notebooks. And when I’ve ticked off more than half of the things I have to do on a particular day I know it’s been a good one.
The thing I’m most proud of is....
Doesn’t pride come before a fall? I am proud of some things but I’d rather not share that information with a public audience for fear that post-disclosure things might fall apart.
When I’m not working for the Spark I’m...
Working for other magazines, writing about music, the environment for, well, anyone who’ll have me..
What I like about working for the Spark is...
Meeting ordinary people, many of whom have done extraordinary things.
How would people describe you?
You better ask them.
