About me

Journalist, noun: a machine for turning caffeine into words.

I am to greater or lesser extents a journalist, technical writer, economist, and start-up enthusiast, in addition to being a purveyor of dubious takes and really not a morning person. The articles on this site do not represent the views of my employers or even necessarily myself. I read for a bachelor of science in economics at York, an MPhil in the same at Balliol, and if I completely lose my mind I might go back into academia for a PhD at some point.

I’m on twitter as @SAshworthHayes, where you can spot the low points in the commissioning cycle by the volume of my output.
