‘Julian…soon built up a reputation for reliability and attention to detail…unfailing creativity…possesses a natural way with words and is both creatively gifted and professionally disciplined…’Iseult Larkin, Deputy Editor at LivingSocial
Much too far out all my life, only intermittently waving and really not drowning. I can do gardening and drumming and work with words, and get by in the wine business.
Country mouse; town mouse manqué, along with a pile of other near misses; procrastinator and machine-breaker.
Naming of parts
I worked on and off for seventeen years at the Annes Grove estate in Co Cork, Ireland, while it remained in private hands, and miss it.
I continue to dig for victory on an allotment plot.
I am a wine-merchant-of-all-trades: tasting, buying and selling on- and off-line through many vintages, chiefly at Cork city business Bubble Brothers.
I do what I can to look after people and computers in the day job too.
A fair few jobs I’ve done have involved writing. I think I’m quite good at it but the world is like, whatever.
I play the drums, swing family mostly. I’ve had a lot of luck in who I’ve played with, and a lot of fun, for a non-musician.
Get in touch
I used to have a contact form, but the spammers just wore me down and I have admitted defeat.
If you do need to get in touch, I daresay you’ll manage it. If not, and you’re in earnest—I’m sorry.
