Stephen West was born and raised in South Africa. Believing that a stable career is something to be actively avoided, he has worked as a waiter, TV extra, law lecturer, auditor, investment analyst, photographer, product manager, web designer, tax adviser, and freelance writer. He now lives in a small town just outside London and spends far too much time on Twitter.
