I am the co-founder and editor of the jazz website Kind Of Jazz (www.kindofjazz.com), and have worked as a music critic for a variety of publications, including Beats magazine in Hong Kong. I'm also the author of Funny Valentine: The Story Of Chet Baker, which was published to widespread acclaim in 2012. I work in finance by day, music by night, and divide my time between London and the South of France.
I own a vast collection of vinyl records which are slowly taking over my home in London. Most of the jazz records are Japanese pressings accumulated while I was working in Tokyo.
