South londoner, i'm your typical laid back, creative-designer-come-charity-worker type. Relatively eclectic in taste and activities, with a hint of geek and a dash of culture... I'm a man who knows what he likes I guess. I like theatre, films, deep discussion, aimless chatter, coffee and red wine. I enjoy cooking but am trying to learn how to cook healthier options! I'm London born and bred and half Scottish. I work for a charity and enjoy live music and great company. I guess I would like someone to enjoy these things with, but I'm in no rush to settle down too quickly either. I enjoy having great friends and close family.
What I’m doing with my life
Just finished organising a music festival and am just getting used to having my life back again... as I mentioned I work for a charity, and plan to continue my career within charities making a difference as best I can. Looking for a new project for my spare time for 2016! Any ideas?
I’m really good at
I'm a pretty good cook. I also like to think I'm a good listener.
The first things people usually notice about me
Or, if you like south west london/posh british accents, that!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favourites have become more eclectic over time. So it's a bit hard to show my taste in stuff accurately here but generally some examples may help. I find you can judge a person more by the news they read than the movies they see.
News sources; Independent, Gaurdian , BBC, New York Times,
Theatre: The National Theatre mostly. Favourites have been: People places and things, Jumpers, Fela, Rules for Living and recently Wonder.Land!
Movies: The Fountain, V for Vendetta, Memento, Whiplash, Lady in the Van, Donnie Darko, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Moulin Rouge, various Marvel/DC, various Disney, quite a few Pixar and more.
Shows: John Stewart, John Oliver, Trevor Noah, Sherlock, Humans, Being Human, Thick of It, Always sunny in Phillidelphia, Community, Green Wing, Black Books
Books: Scarlett Thomas, Paulo Cohelo, Terry Pratchett, Gabriel Garcia Marquez , generally a lot of dystopian novels, or magical realism.
Music: uhh.. mostly indie, alternative, metal..... though to be honest I also love me some blues, reggae and ska, and a bit of acoustic always goes down well. Not a fan of Cyrus or Bieber much.
Other media: Cracked.com , Adam and Joe's podcast, 6 Music.
The six things I could never do without
I strongly value my friends and family and love to travel, be active and zone out on the PS4 from time to time.
6 (8) everyday luxuries I like to have:
Good coffee & Good tea
Good wine & Good food
Good company & Good sex
A project on the go of some sort.
A sense of direction in life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to become the man I want to be.
On a typical Friday night I am
Celebrating the end of the week with work colleagues, friends or my
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
In most cases I'm an open book, so
For the few secrets I keep close, chances are my closest friends might have a hard time getting to them.
You should message me if
You'd like to! Totally a feminist. More than happy for you to make the first move ;)
