Day_1I’m a professional editor and independent researcher who foolhardily imagined that staying at home with the kids would be a cushier number than entering the academic rat race.

I was born in London, England, spent too many years at Cambridge, UK, taught academic writing at Duke University in North Carolina, and now find myself – together with one wife, three young boys, three guinea pigs and an ever-growing population of cats – in a small village in Israel situated just left of the end of the world.

This site showcases my ongoing scholarship and editing services. It also allows me to post the occasional homemade Lego movie and heartfelt complaint about children’s mess or the apocalyptic politics of the Middle East.

You’ve been in the pipeline, filling in time…
