My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Don't let the suit-pic fool you. I don't work in the city, promise.

I'm a musician and soon to be school teacher. I play a bunch of instruments and currently work as a musical director and arranger. I like music (the big and unsubtle stuff), philosophy (the analytic stuff), maths (the pretty stuff), biology (the behavioural stuff) and economics (the behavioural stuff again). But I'm interested in learning new things - teach me something! I play in a POP band - here's a video of a song I wrote. I'm the one in the red t-shirt singing the tune. This was 18 months ago but I basically look the same. Usually less tired. On the day this was recorded my phone was stolen and I'd spent hours trying to get it back (unsuccessfully):
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Playing and writing music, and part-time teaching. Lots of cycling, lots of cooking.

I recently finished a part-time ma in philosophy. I learned plenty of head-in-clouds epistemology, but also interesting things about life-extension and quantum mechanics.

I'll be starting full-time work in a school next year, and the plan for this summer is to cycle to Budapest from London. Anyone fancy joining me?

I also just built a bed. As in designed it, sawed it out of wood and pieced it together. It's one of my all-time greatest achievements.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making excellent puns. Not going to give an example, but give me a topic and I will amaze you.

Other useful skills: cooking, talking, thinking.

Other useless skills: balancing things (I can balance a guitar on my foot), holding myself horizontal on a lamppost/pole, doing an impression of a trombone.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
No big lists, but here are some favourites:

Victoria, by Knut Hamsun.
The unbearable lightness of being, by Milan Kundera.
Candide, by Voltaire.

Beauty and the beast, by Disney
Before sunrise (and the others)
Adaptation (it's so meta)

Music: Beatles and Beach Boys, Stravinsky and Strauss.

Food: street food the world over - the best ever being from Mumbai and Port of Spain
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music through headphones
A good bed and matress
Regular massages
My bicycle
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The pros and cons of indefinite life-extension. So far no one has convinced me there are any serious cons.

The algorithms that OkCupid uses to match people. I almost always get matched with feminists, socialists, post-grads and study abroad students. Which is fine by me. (I'm pretty sure if you're reading this you are at least two of those, right?!) But it also makes me wonder where all the uneducated British misogynist thatcherites are in my life.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm an excellent knitter.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're intelligent, good to talk to, interesting and interested in the world.
