My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm British-American actor-turned-teacher, originally from London. Growing up, my childhood was actually split among England, the Bay Area, and Amsterdam (transatlantic parental divorce = messy). After going to high school over here, I did a BA and MA in English at the University of London, then was an actor for a few years before moving back here to San Francisco (yes, partly for the weather). I'm passionate about teaching, books, theatre, and film. I'm athletic; I love to run marathons, and I am a keen fan of both soccer and baseball (my teams, respectively, are Arsenal and the Giants). I enjoy good beer, good coffee, and good food, whether I'm eating out or cooking myself. As for dating, well, I'm having another crack at OkC after a prolonged absence.

I also once got a review on here:
"5 stars! I found his portrayal of a decidedly flawless, witty British guy to be refreshing." - Rosalind1623

So there you have it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently a teacher supervisor for a company that runs programs for kids and adults to teach them to become better readers. In short, I teach kids how to read, introduce them to amazing books, and then teach other teachers how to do the same! It's fulfilling, rewarding, and challenging in the best way possible.

For a few years I did work, and sometimes still do, as an actor. I was in an independent feature film in the Bay Area last summer, called "Prep School", in which I played the stereotypically evil (but charming) British character. Aside from that, the highlight of my acting career so far was touring in The Importance of Being Earnest for four months around Italy, and I did the same job the previous year but playing Mr Darcy in Pride and Prejudice.

Some day I'll be an English and Drama teacher wearing a jacket with elbow patches. They give you one of those when you get the job, right? I hope so. (I'm joking...I already own one.) I also hope to run my own theatre company.

In the meantime, when not working, I try to write. Children's books, short stories, films, TV pilots, plays...all working towards that big novel that I'll write one of these days, but it's more of a casual hobby than anything else.

I'm planning to run the LA, SF, and Half Moon Bay Marathons this year, so I'll either be in the best shape of my life...or dead.

On weekends at the moment, I split my time between watching soccer in a pub, reading, hanging out with friends, casually drinking, running, and the latest that Netflix has to offer.

Lastly, I love to hike. I try to go to Yosemite every year with my brother and pretty much hike my legs off. We also befriend marmots.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Conversing. And making people laugh. I enjoy those long meandering conversations that last well into the night and cover life, the universe, and everything.

Also, everything mentioned above. Teaching, writing, acting and long-distance running.

I think I hold a conversation pretty well, am intelligent, and can explore a city with the best of them.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Running, laughter, books, soccer, and education

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
That novel I might someday finally write.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't think I have a "typical" Friday night. Lately it's an evening run followed by dinner and beers with close friends, and talking philosophically well into the night.
