I am a writer. I imagine in a parallel universe I might be a caricaturist or a botanist or somewhere asleep on the moon. But here I am a writer, armed with an astrophysics degree, a Paperchase pen and a half empty box of biscuits
You’re Here to Make Moments, Not Memories
“Let’s make some memories.” That’s what it’s all about, right? Doing this, creating that, experiencing this, living that. We live that so we can look back on it. We do so that we can remember it.

He’s a military history nerd with a soft spot for Napoleon. He’s a barista who sure as hell knows his coffee. And he’s a drummer, so no wonder my heart is beating so erratically.
