Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"One morning, as David was waking up from weird dreams, he
discovered that in bed he had been changed into a human
Cinéphile, audiophile, and logophile.
Handyman ordinaire. Bricoleur du Dimanche.
My BS detector is very sensitive. Life is too short for deception
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Learning how to be a human being. It's a dirty job, and someone has
to do it.
Taking photos. See the progress on Flickr
Listening to too much (bad) music, watching too many (bad) movies,
reading too many (bad) books.
Breathing, stretching and bending.
Understanding the world.
Trying to be useful.
I strive to be a gentleman.
I try to live my life unfiltered.
Zen and the art of making dark chocolate mousse.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Learning. Looking and listening. Bending. Analyzing.
Over-analyzing. Being clumsy. Using Occam's razor
. Accumulating vast
amounts of useless knowledge. Being redundant. I'm not bad with
, and have
a slight tendency for understatement. Detecting patterns and
understanding the dynamics of complex systems. Making lists.
My Gallic shrugs are pretty good. My French accent is excellent,
according to my friends. I make a mean dark chocolate mousse.

I love BBC Radio shows. Gilles Peterson and Benji B are my BFFs.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Food, shelter, clothes, family, friends, art? Or yoga
, movies, books, vinyls, a camera
and a bike?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The irony of life. The lightness of being. Santa Claus the slave
master. The geopolitical quagmire of the middle-east. Gregor Samsa.
The feeling of the absurd. The mysteries of photographic
composition. Why I'm thinking so much. What's for lunch. Moving to
Iceland. Why is it so hard to define oneself in a few words. Moving
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Practicing yoga. Having dinner with friends. Watching a movie.
Planning for world domination.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I would like to get a fauxhawk.
I have a soft spot for pixie crops and pencil skirts.
