Favourite movie is Cloud Atlas, it's a brilliant film that manages to be uplifting, depressing, funny, sad and scary in equal measures.

I like cooking and Dungeons & Dragons.



I'm from Leicester, which is where I also went to uni.

"Nobody important? Blimey, that's amazing. You know, nine hundred years of time and space and I've never met anybody who wasn't important before."

I once got choked unconscious in a MMA training sparring match - a really trippy experience. My coach woke me up by picking my feet up and shaking them to get the blood back to his head, and I was so disorientated I called him "Becky" (my wife's name) in front of a gym full of burly cagefighters.    

Me and my wife on our honeymoon in Tokyo

I'm obsessed with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I keep putting my wife in armlocks when she's not looking. I don't really know why she puts up with me.



I like any variety of punk and believe there's no such thing as a song that's "too fast".

Me getting married


The people make Axonn a great place to work.

Speak English, a bit of French, and a TINY bit of Latin left over from my Ancient History degree.

I support Leicester Tigers in rugby union.
