My self-summary
I have to say I was really confronted by that question ‘How long do you want your next relationship to last?’ Makes it sound like a phone deal or a carton of milk. For some time I was really hoping for ‘the one’ but that hasn’t happened and actually, I don’t mind. Over the last few years I’ve had some great relationships that weren’t ‘the one’. I’ve got to know great people which is a privilege and I’ve got to know myself a whole lot better too. It seems to me, even if I am still looking for ‘the one’, there’s no way of finding it without risking some more ‘pay as you go’ or having some long life milk in the cupboard. Now that sounds like I’m just looking for sex, which I’m not and I don’t even drink milk so my metaphors are a scramble. I hope I’m giving you the sense that I am a self aware individual not much concerned by expectations that I should be ‘settling down’ but keen to meet like-minded folk and see what happens.
What I’m doing with my life
I’m an artist which I know to some is like saying I’m a wanker. But there you go. I travel a lot but will be in Aus for this year.

I read a lot, both fiction and non. I enjoy seeing bands and I also like camping and the outdoors although it feels like it might be time for indoor pursuits now. I'm not into sport or the gym but ride my bike most places and do yoga a couple of times a week.
I’m really good at
entertaining – dinner parties mainly these days
coordinating colours
public speaking - I know weird, but I find it really easy
making and maintaining strong friendships
cracking really dark jokes
enjoying myself
The first things people usually notice about me
It's probably my style. I'm pretty into clothes, particularly vintage.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I try to read the classics and some of my favourites have been ‘Lady Chatterly’s Lover’, ‘Wuthering Heights’, ‘Dracula’, ‘A Handful of Dust’, ‘Dangerous Liaisons’ and ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’. My favourite fiction authors are F Scott Fitzgerald and Bret Easton Ellis.

I usually have a novel and a non fiction book going at any one time. I really enjoy books about music. Last years favourite was Simon Reynold’s ‘Retromania’ and others include Nick Hornby’s ’31 Songs’, Marianne Faitfhul’s autobiography, ‘The Dirt’ and Clinton Walker’s ‘Stranded’.

Other non fiction favourites include Alain De Botton’s ‘The Art of Travel’, Richard Tarnas’ ‘Cosmos and Psyche’ and Edinger’s ‘The Eternal Drama’.

I see quite a lot of live music and particularly like going to festivals like Golden Plains and Boogie. I like a lot of local music particularly from the 80s and 90s. a random selection of preferred music includes The Rolling Stones The Pixies, Leonard Coen, The Drones, Bowie, Springsteen and Big Star.

I love food, a lot and always get into any local cuisine when I’m travelling, even if it means eating fermented shark, which in Iceland it does. Locally, I really enjoy a pub meal and Greek and Vietnamese food. The whole gourmet burger craze is just bizarre to me and I may be the only person on the planet whose least favourite food is Italian.
