grew up in northwest Ireland and lives in London. He is the editor and co-founder of The Gannet
, which acts as a conduit for his shameless nosiness about other people's eating habits. A regular contributor to the Observer Food Monthly
, he has also written for the Guardian
, The Times
and the New Statesman
, covering music, film, literature, travel and technology as well as food. He'd call himself an omnivore were it not for a lingering fear of boiled eggs.
