About me
Copywriter, fiction writer, songwriter, podcast maker, crafter of things for cold hard cash. First fiction collection, 'Not From Above!', published by Unbound, April 2019. Produced with accompanying 12 song album. Currently writing lots of business copy for Arup, covering topics as varied as the electric car thing, business ethics, sustainable development, wind farm development, and all manner of digital era developments... I write, record, and produce podcasts for internal audiences, once more on a dizzying array of subjects. Most recent interview was with the wonderfully artful Roísín Murphy, for Kaput Magazine: https://kaput-mag.com/stories_en/roisin-murphy_interview_roisin-the-infinitely-capable-machine/
Projects
  • Not From Above! (book and album, 2019)My debut fiction collection. A series of what-ifs, how-abouts and darkly comic thought experiments, populated by anxious central Asian dictators, passive aggressive board games, and starship captains who really need to learn to prioritise. Comes with a lush 12-song album of jazzy-pop confections. Published by Unbound, 2019. Available on Amazon, Waterstones, Bandcamp, Spotify and all good streamers. https://alexandersfestivalhall.bandcamp.com/album/not-from-above

We decided right from the start that the style should be knowing and playful, im
