Scottish guy who lives in Denmark.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an advertising creative. Which means I come up with silly ideas
for a living. I've been fortunate enough to work on some really fun
and high profile projects.
I also write, a lot. Fiction, journalism, etc. I write an irregular
column for a very popular American news website.
I’m really good at
Taking people to excellent bars.
Making Spotify playlists.
Recommending art, music or restaurants.
The first things people usually notice about me
Piercing blue eyes, insouciant personal style, about three stone
overweight? Take your pick. :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm not going to write a huge wall of text with all the films,
music and writers I've ever enjoyed. Sorry about that. I sort of
think that personal taste is something that's fun to discover about
someone else, rather than read in a big list like some kind of MI6
dossier. If you get me started on a conversation about one of these
things then you'll soon find out what I'm into. Then we'll have a
lovely moment where we discover that we are both into some obscure
90s dreampop record. Or we'll have a horrible clash where I am into
things like obscure 90s dreampop records and you like, I dunno,
whatever they play on the radio or something. But that's cool,
because I want to meet people and not record collections. :)
That being said, music is a bit of an obsession, I do enjoy some
films, and I have read many novels and I continue to read them on a
Oh and yes, I eat food.
The six things I could never do without
Physical contact (I like cuddles a lot)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
At work it's usually something like: how to engage men aged between
18-35 with a washing powder brand using an innovative digital
widget of some kind.
Outside of work I'm usually dreaming about finally getting a novel
published, or how I'd like to meet the woman of my dreams and sweep
her off her feet.
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking with friends, usually in Shoreditch or Soho. If we're
going to be having a late one, in the absence of more interesting
plans like a warehouse party or something, we'll usually go to
I love bars like Callooh Calley, 69 Colebrooke Row, Lounge Bohemia
Sometimes I'm so knackered from a long week that I just have a few
pints with friends from work and then go home, eat dinner, watch a
film and go to bed. I never used to do that but I might be getting
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've had terrible luck with relationships. Things never really work
out, mostly purely due to unfortunate circumstances.
You should message me if
I like girls who are kind. That is the only universal criteria I
have. If you are kind, and you want to message me, then do
Definitely get in touch if you have a funny story about an unusual
OK Cupid date you've had. I can't get enough of them.
