I live in a small city in the middle of England with my wife and young daughter. After working full-time in Arts Marketing for over 20 years, I'm currently "between jobs". All offers gratefully received!

I was diagnosed with MS in 2005 after having vague symptoms over a number of years. I'm currently having Tysabri infusions, after trying Rebif (interferon beta-1a) injections and Tecfidera (dimethyl fumarate). What's next??

I'm a sometime wheelchair user, full-time walking stick abuser and I try not to be too much of a loser. I’m an occasional musician, a full-time Music Nerd and part-time Music Snob (but I’m trying to cut down my hours for the sake of my marriage and friendships).

After being told by a neurologist to stay away from the internet following my diagnosis, I’ve been writing about my life with MS online since 2009.
