My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well I reckon if you're looking for the winning combination of a go-getting, uncompromising 'Thatcher's child', modern city man; one with an eye for haute couture style and flush with readies, then... Oh, dear!!
... If you're looking for (or willing to settle for) the exact opposite, then I may be able to help! ;)

As a sometimes gregarious, but equally content away from the crowd; I'd probably be more than happy to swap either for a little intimacy on some occasions! I've been in Manchester about a year, after a decade in SE London.

Update: Just started a company!
It's focused on the sexy subject of cutting pollution from shipping, boats, etc; early days yet though. Indeed, my 'career progression' has been a somewhat ad hoc affair in the past (hence 'Jack...'). I've been an engineer, a programmer, car mechanic (of sorts), a jack of many, if rather nerdy trades, but reckon I should have followed my heart and gone 'eco' from day one really.

I'm continuing to keep part of my time spare to work voluntarily on community projects where, I hope, my skills do some good. I ain't working for the 'man' no more; edit: but now being a 'director' i guess I am 'The man'! ;)

Air-travel requires a really, really good reason in my book - which these days translates to 'I'll only use it if there's something totally unmissable waiting at the other end'!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Questioning the validity of it (which is not nearly as negative as it might sound!)....
edit: And now, co-running a 'green' engineering company!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Bit cliché perhaps, but being there for people if they really need it.
Fixing things.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favourite Book: One flew over the cuckoo's nest.
Fav. Film: Kubrick's 2001.
Top proper 'classic' film is Brighton Rock; closely followed by China Town. 'Modern' favourite is Fight Club.

Music: First love is still Grundge: Soundgarden, Peal Jam, Nirvana, Pumpkins, etc. Then later, Mike Patton, QOTSA, Foos. Currently Mark Lanegan and composer Arvo Part among others.
Best gig ever was probably Radiohead (still listen to them alot), in a big tent, in a field outside Manchester ...around a decade ago (long before I moved here).

Gutted that Iain (M.) Banks has died; I love his Culture novels.
I really like Adam Curtis' style of documentary film making.
Most inspiring people: Tony Benn, James Lovelock and the (joke->) cast of TOWIE* ;)
*[a vacuous bunch, who appear to hang out in places near to, but excluding the (apparently) W.Essex village I grew up in]
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
"never do without" - that's quite an ask!
What I'd rather not do without: The great outdoors, thinking (a necessity really), physical contact (on occasion!), a bike, passion (of all kinds), google, AIR!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The Patent I'm failing to write.
Why humans act like animals but believe they're not (...which sounds like the title of an Adam Curtis short!).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably having a chat and a pint (or several) of hopefully decent ale in the pub, but maybe secretly wishing I was in some sleazy old rock club giving myself a sore neck! [bygone days, eh!]
