I'm a politics reporter for the Mirror. Based in London, originally from Sheffield.
Particular interests include US politics, human rights, technology and surveillance.
In my spare time, I drink coffee, read, play video games when I should be at the gym and post pictures of real world clothes that look like Star Trek uniforms on Tumblr.
My special skill is being snarky on the internet.
