My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Professional good guy, a bit different (my best friend calls me 'unconventionally unconventional' which might just mean normal, but I think I know what she means...) and terribly enthusiastic about all the stuff I like.

I love to read - books and stories are oxygen for my imagination.

Sharp-suited Science Pirate - I have no idea what this means, but I liked the way the words went together.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Wondering if I'm really as dull as this profile suggests, and why, as a keen photographer, no better pictures of me exist...

I'm professionally technical, but now I'm skating very close to the dark side of Marketing.

In 2011 I made my first visit to Italy, where my family comes from originally. We're from Bardi, a little town in the Parma region. I went back last year, to visit a friend in Tuscany - Italy is just wonderful! Sadly, I still can't speak any Italian at all.

I'm trying to do more fitness related activities, like running (awful) and cycling (better) in an effort to stay alive. This year I've started playing Touch Rugby in a local league - it's a lot of fun, no scrums and you play in mixed teams! Actually thinking of going back to rowing for fun - there's unfinished business between me and single-sculls. (This makes me look like a fitness fanatic, but that's one of the very last things I am! I could say I only exercise because nice suits fit better, but then I'd look like a preening clothes horse and that's not me either...)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Using the ellipsis...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Is that more often that not, I'll be wearing a really nice suit, and that I make a really good cup of tea (providing I have access to a proper tea pot - none of this tea bag in a mug nonsense.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Oooh, let's define ourselves with lists...
(But it's easy and fun!)
... oh, go on then:

Books:
The sadly late Iain M Banks, Alastair Reynolds, Philip K Dick, Philip Pullman's 'His Dark Materials', Philip Reeve (I seem to like a lot of author's called Philip - that isn't deliberate...), Neil Gaiman, E E 'Doc' Smith, Cordwainer Smith, Kurt Vonnegut, William Gibson, Herge's Adventures of Tintin, Scott Pilgrim...

Films:
Blade Runner, Pan's Labyrinth, Aliens, Run Lola Run, Resident Evil, Bugsy Malone, Scott Pilgrim Vs the World, Fight Club, Inception, The Matrix (only the first one, really), Any Shakespeare adaptation (Shakespeare's best watched, not read.)

TV Shows:
The West Wing (best writing for TV, bar none), Mad Men, Cowboy Bebop, Azumanga Diaoh, Sharpe, Game of Thrones, True Detective...

Food:
Japanese food, and not just sushi: Yakitori, Teppanyaki, Teriaki anything (no aubergines though) Chicken Katsu Curry (Wagamama's is as good as anything I had in Tokyo!)
Steak: fillet, rare
Cakes: I often bake up a huge batch of chocolate chip cupcakes. Quality control testing is critical - they're nice straight out of the oven.
My 'Ultimate Chocolate Cake' regularly gets 10 out of 10 and 5-star reviews from my female work colleagues...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why I'm not writing the book I've been thinking about writing for ten years.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There's no such thing as a typical Friday night - the best nights out are the spontaneous ones that come out of nowhere, your friends text you to say they're in a local bar, and you're to meet them there as soon as you finish work. Good company, good conversation, a few drinks, maybe even some singing!
I used to go out in Oxford and Reading every Friday, but less so these days.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is probably best kept off the internet.
I do however, wish I'd created a proper alias as a username, and not just used my real name. D'oh!
