James Garside at the top of the Eiffel Tower

Me at the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France – 2017

At the moment I:

  • Live in West Yorkshire where I was born and bred
  • Work in the third-sector on Administration, Marketing and Communications for a charity in Leeds
  • Drink whisky sat at home in my underwear and question my life choices

I’m proud that I:

  • Got an article published in The Big Issue (Big Issue North to be precise)
  • Co-edited a book as part of Circa Works
  • Set up an account on Redbubble to sell my art / photography — though I use the terms ‘sell’ and ‘art’ loosely

I love that:

  • After 10 years without a break I’ve caught the travel bug again
  • I visited New York, Iceland and Paris on a shoestring
  • I’m already planning my next escape

I want to:

  • Achieve financial independence
  • Find somewhere I can do my best work
  • Write that fucking novel

In short:

  • I want to travel and write
  • If only there was such a thing as some sort of … ‘travel’ … ‘writer’
  • Sorry, my head hurts
