I’ve been the manager of the P & G Wells University Bookshop since it first opened on campus. When I’m not running the bookshop, I write, direct & perform in local theatre, particularly pantomime; and I’m very interested in Doctor Who (then and now). I’m on Twitter as @SimplerDave – follow me there!
I’m studying English and Creative Writing here at the University, just about to start my final year. I also work as a DJ and a radio broadcaster in my home town of Bournemouth.
