Sales has never been my strong suit, but maybe that's a good thing.
That said I'd like to think that I am outgoing, sincere and laid
back with a passion for the creative arts. It's probably not a
hugely positive attribute but it usually takes me a long time to
get comfortable around people. It's always been a quality over
quantity thing when it's come to meeting new ones for me. In lots
of ways I still feel grossly immature. Again this is something I
don't necessarily see as a negative... I just realized how much I
hate writing self-summaries.
What I’m doing with my life
Living and working in Galway since June '12. And so far so good. I
work in design which can sometimes not feel like work at all. And
then there's the other 95% of the time... Up until recently I've
enjoyed running my ass off. My knees however didn't. So, it's
swimming and cycling from here until armageddon. Other than that
I'm trying to meet new people in this damp but charming town. I am
really terrible at it and could do with bucking my ideas up and
joining a swing class or something equally horrifying. But you too
can help. Get in touch. Did that sound a little desperate? How
about: I NEED PEOPLE FOR FRIENDSHIP PURPOSES.
I’m really good at
I'm really bad at

- Poaching eggs - I've lost about a dozen eggs to watery egg
- Remembering birthdays

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The short-term crap of everyday. And food. And whether social media
is causing the mass regression of western civilization.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually out with friends in some capacity, romancing my first
well-earned beer of the weekend. If not I'm probably in with a
bottle of red wine and a film I've stolen from the internet.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was a gosson I was obsessed with coffee. I used to drink the
entrails of my mom's mugs much to her annoyance. Soon I demanded my
own. Amazingly she relented and served me up a weakened cup of
decaf as I readied myself for Sesame St.
You should message me if
you've come this far.
