Dale Burgess



Self-confessed music addict from South Manchester who ironically chose to play with words over instruments. Strong believer in maintaining balance, with full-tilt football and long-distance running on one scale, and pale ale and loud music on the other. Always accompanied by one of 57,849 flavours of tea and have a typically British obsession with the weather.
