Although I graduated from Exeter with a 1st in Economics BSc in 2018, having spent a year out at PwC as an audit associate, I still maintain that my most notable achievement in those four years was my four-game stint on Countdown. In the interim summer between finishing university and starting back at PwC, I wrote my first novel, largely as a cathartic time-filling exercise. Since then, I have completed my ACA training and Chartered Accountancy qualification, written a second novel, Frayed Edges, worked on my article-writing skills, writing for both PwC and Lockdown Sceptics, published Frustrations of a Sceptic, a collection of articles that look at anxiety, depression, and the lockdowns, left PwC, and will be starting a PGCE in September. I had planned to have a longer career “in the city”, perhaps moving to teaching once I’d gained some significant life experience, made some money, and reached about 40; however, as has been the case for many others, the last thirteen months has led to a rather sizeable shift in my priorities, and I decided, at the ripe old age of 25, that the corporate world simply isn’t for me and that it is time to explore other avenues, whether that’s teaching, writing, or both. I am also borderline obsessive with my love of cricket, for what it’s worth.
