“I’m a freelance journalist and broadcaster with a weakness for film and music. I write for people like the BBC, The Sunday Times, HMV and Musician magazine. Away from the day job, I play guitar then go to gigs to see how it’s done properly. On holiday abroad, I wander into cinemas and watch unsubtitled films with a bemused expression. Then I get my own back by making the locals learn cricket.”
