My self-summary
Allons-y! A phrase to start an incredible adventure if I ever heard one! Hi, I'm Dan and I'm here to meet some new people and see what happens - interesting times will abound!

I studied Computer Science at the University of Bristol, but I'm actually considered to be one of the most arty ones of my friends. I love to write, and indulge in photography and digital art when I feel inspired. I have an interest in the early modern period of history, with the Renaissance being a particular passion of mine. I also dabble in poetry and storytelling, maybe I will share if you are interested.

I grew up in Abingdon, just south of Oxford, but have lived in various places around the country and even in America since leaving my parents. I've been in Bristol for coming up to three and a half years now, and am carving out a place for myself here.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently working the IT helpdesk for a county council, helping users at the council and schools out. I've also got various irons in the fire, which might hopefully lead to a career in computer graphics.
I’m really good at
- Weaving tales and spinning stories for the entertainment and edification of others.
- Walking near silently in army boots.
- Being overly verbose when filling out online dating profiles.
The first things people usually notice about me
The dramatic way I sweep in with my long black coat, which either gets the response "Awesome coat" or some kind of Matrix reference.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Oh wow. So much to choose from.

Books: A wide range of things, from fantasy and sci-fi, to classic literature, and then on to popular science and mathematics. Authors such as William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, Scott Lynch, George Orwell, Raymond Smullyan, and Michio Kaku come to mind. I also have a love of things Alice in Wonderland related, which spans across all of the sub categories below (apart from maybe food, but it may be only a matter of time until it finds a way to infiltrate there too).

Comics/Graphic Novels: Big, huge fan of Ben Templesmith's art and storytelling. Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean make an awesome pairing - pretty much everything they touch is golden. David Lapham/German Nobile's Caligula series was messed up but pretty damn awesome. I'm also reading Brian K. Vaughan's Saga - but then again isn't everyone?

Movies: Where do I begin? Looking at my collection here, I like visions of dystopic futures, Bladerunner, Equilibrium, and animes such as Ergo Proxy and Texhnolyze. I have a soft spot for Hackers, and A Knight's Tale and Plunkett and Macleane are two of the most enjoyable films I have seen (I do love a bit of an anachronistic historical romp). Oh and Hero. The cinematography in that film, just amazing. I'm also going to put something a bit out of leftfield out there, Timecode. Look it up.

Shows: Like TV shows? I'm going to run with that. I enjoy watching things like: Burn Notice, Game of Thrones, The Borgias and Breaking Bad. Not sure many people caught the HBO show Carnivale, but that is quite possibly my favourite show ever, such a shame it was cancelled. And like, bring back Firefly too.

Music: Fun times. My main interest lies within the gothic/industrial/ebm genres, with artists such as The Cruxshadows, Ayria, VNV Naton, Assemblage 23, NIN and KMFDM being regular guests on my playlist. I also enjoy some more folky things like Blackmore's Night and The Mediaeval Baebes. Recently I have been listening to a bit of melodic drum and bass, e.g. Feint, and have been enjoying it greatly.

Someone matching my description has been seen dancing away on the dancefloors of the various gothic/industrial club nights in Bristol.

Gaming: I'm adding this section because it seems appropriate. Right now, I'm playing Dark Souls 2. It's a game that demands focus and attention, but isn't as hard as people make out. I have a love of the Assassin's Creed franchise and other stealthy type games, Dishonored deserves a particular mention due to it filling both a stealth and steampunk role in my life. I also like rpgs and strategy games, with the old but amazing Neverwinter Nights and Hearthstone keeping me occupied online. I play board games and tabletop rpgs too - D&D/Pathfinder, World of Darkness, Cyberpunk 2020 - all old friends to me.

Food: As far as food goes, I have eclectic tastes. I love japanese, sushi bars and teppanyaki restaurants are two of my favourite places to eat out. I also do a mean homemade teriyaki salmon much to the delight of my flatmates. I like mexican quite a lot too when the mood takes me.
The six things I could never do without
1) My music. Keeps me happy, sane and occupied.
2) My friends. The assorted misfits that I surround myself with, I couldn't do it without you lot.
3) My gadgets. How am I supposed to live without having wikipedia or imdb at my fingertips constantly? ;)
4) Dreams. To sleep, perchance to dream. I have such adventures in my dreams, I don't know what I would do without them.
5) The colour black. I do wear a lot of it. I'd have to go around naked otherwise.
6) Almonds. I do seem to be overly fond of marzipan, amaretto and other such things of almond-esque flavour. Which makes me very susceptible to cyanide poisoning... Oh no! I've given away my one weakness!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- Whether or not the world needs to fall into a dystopic future for everyone to pull themselves together, unite and get along. I see things sliding that way, but I have a profound belief that when the chips are down, we will all pull together.

- Many convoluted ways to introduce amaretto into desserts and cakes.

- Where all the grey hair on my head is coming from, and why doesn't it hurry up and cover the whole of my head so I can dye it violet.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either living the rock and roll dream with a film/book and a G&T (Bombay Sapphire if you are interested), or at the Gryphon after work with some of those reprobates I call friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I ran off and got married to a girl I met online when I was 19. Seemed like the best of ideas at the time. Young and stupid much? Didn't work out well.
