Hi all. So about me ... I've just moved to Wolverhampton to be
closer to work and don't know anybody apart from work mates here so
thinking this could a good way to meet some new people and who
My names Alan, I'm 25, originally from Bristol (dont worry i dont
have the accent) but have been living around the midlands for about
6 years now. I like doing all the usual things, me and my mates
tend to go out on a weekend, not really into the whole
gatecrasher/oceana scene though, we tend to be in the more quirky
bars and warehouse clubs (hopefully that doesn't sound too
pretentious :s), we try and get away as much ad possible too, going
to china for Christmas this year.
Big fan of music, I used to work in music for a few years so got
introduced to a load of different types of music so would say I
have a very diverse taste now. I like to try new things too,
started surfing this year and am now hooked on it!
I work in digital media which I love, I also get to do a decent
amount of design where I work right now which I like as I love
graphic design, wish I was better at it, one day though
Anyway want to know more just drop me a message
What I’m doing with my life
I wish I knew! No I'm joking. I work in marketing which is what I
love. So I worked in the marketing department of a record label for
3 years when I finished uni and now I work in digital marketing and
PR for a toy company. I really love working within creative
independent companies so my aim is really to work for great fun
companies, progress in my career and just have lots of fun.
Life definitely isn't all about work though. Me and my close
friends try to use our time off to do fun things so so far this
year we've booked in a weekend to learn to surf and spend a long
weekend at the beach, a week trip to Estonia, some roller disco in
London and 3 weeks traveling around china over Christmas.
I’m really good at
I hope I'm really good at my job, in terms of hobbies I play a bit
of tennis, would hardly say I'm really good at it though. I played
guitar a lot when I was younger but I've let that slip lately. I
also really like art and have more recently got into design layout
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure, you tell me.
I'm quite into fashion so possibly people notice that. I've also
got a lisp so people probably notice that too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies - black balloon, candy, inception, control, old school, 500
days of summer, the perks of being a wallflower to name a few. I
like to watch the more independent arty films rather than big
Music - folk, funk, soul, jazz, house, techno, blues, indie. I'm a
big music fan, I worked in music for a few years after university
so got into lots of different things.
Shows - breaking bad, QI, top gear, how I met your mother, new girl
Food - traditional Chinese and Thai, Spanish tapas and just all
other nice food, I'll try anything.
The six things I could never do without
Work or a purpose
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Philosophy and how to right the wrongs in the world. Hmm that's not
really true. This is a bit if a hard question, I spend time
thinking about the future in terms of work, what I want to do and
where I want to live and I spend time thinking about places I want
to go, oh and clothes I want to buy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Spending time with friends, whether that's staying in with some
nice food, some drinks and good conversation or out in a good bar
or club in a favorite city.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Made in Chelsea is my guilty pleasure
