Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a creative, friendly, genuine sort of a guy. I lived in New
Zealand for 20 years, where I programmed a theatre and directed
shows, now I'm enjoying being back in the UK, making the most of
what London has to offer. Once I've got to know someone, I have a
playful sense of humour and vivid imagination. My ideal date would
involve interesting conversation over good food and drink, or
during a wander through the city. I'm passionate about the arts -
theatre, films and a wide range of music. One of my favourite
things to do is exploring London's layers of history, the charms of
a European city, or the countryside. I'll stop short of including
beaches at sunset !
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living it fully - hopefully with increasing degrees of gratitude
and being present in the moment. I used to direct theatre a lot
more frequently than I do currently, and that's my vocation, my
passion in life, so I'm taking steps back towards that. Meanwhile,
to pay the bills, the day job is in arts funding for theatre -
which means I get a regular diet of great theatre and contact with
theatre-makers - both food for the soul!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Collaborating; listening; appreciating others; directing theatre;
coming up with creative concepts; exploring new places; people
watching; art appreciation...
