I'll cut to the chase. Broke my back aged 15, after I recovered I've done every job under the sun from labouring for my dad on a building site to porter on a childrens ward to selling chocolate on Brixton Market. Been to prison twice, once in England and once in Spain. Realised writing my experiences down helped me and so indulged in reading every play and book that has ever interested me. Im not afraid of doing any job and have a very sharp, blunt train of thought. I wrote a play called Spank House that was taken on by National Studio Theatre and I performed it myself to 5 star reviews. I write in my spare time as my entertainment and I dont listen to mainstream politics, in short I like to do my own thing. I'm a sure-fire bet to work with however as my dark sense of humour allows me access to anything and nothing is off limits. I love a pulled pork sandwich. The end.
