Half French, half English and settled in Paris after many years
living and working in different countries... UK, Germany, Turkey
and Pakistan (technically). What drew me to this website was its
cosmopolitan angle, I sometimes miss the international vibe of
What I’m doing with my life
I've promised myself that this year, I'll finish War and Peace but
I've decided to binge watch Nip Tuck instead. It's all part of
life's rich tapestry.
I’m really good at
Changing my colleagues' screensaver when they're away from their desk. I'm also a decent runner over 10 or 20K.
In terms of cooking: there are a couple of recipes that I haven't completely screwed up.
The first things people usually notice about me
I suppose I'm kind of tall(ish) for a (half) Frenchman.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: I go to a lot of gigs and listen to many artists but to keep it short and sweet, I'd say that my three favourite bands at the moment are The National, Okkervil River and Against me! .
Gigs I've been to recently include: Jeff The Brotherhood, Beirut, The Wildhearts, Ugly Kid Joe, Thunder, Courtney Barnett, El Vy .
Next up: Therapy?, Kurt Vile, Shearwater...
Shows: The Wire, The Sopranos, Archer, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Game of Thrones, Peep Show, The Office (UK), Twin Peaks, The Corner, Girls, Friday Night Lights.
True Detective... Apparently season 2 was rubbish, so I'm getting my HBO fix with Show Me a Hero. You should check it out too.
Novels: The Joke, Sound and the Fury, The Corrections, High Fidelity, Les Bienveillantes, The Master and Margarita, A Confederacy of Dunces, Portnoy's Complaint.
The six things I could never do without
This is such a silly question.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why your profile picture is a photo of your feet.
On a typical Friday night I am
Air Guitar Hero.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm at the stage in my life where I must own a nose hair trimmer.
You should message me if
you're a bit of a tomboy and you want to come with me to loud gigs in cramped, dark venues.
If you're tall and kinda goofy looking, that's cool too.
No glamour shots or conspiracy theorists. Seriously.
