Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I always hate doing these self summary things, I never really know
what to write.
Firstly I am a pretty serious sportsman, meaning I take part in
competitive sport and train a lot for it. As a result, this takes
up a good part of my life. One of the biggest perks is that I get
to travel quite a bit and do a sport I enjoy in some nice
surroundings. I also get to meet some of our heroes of the 2012
games on a regular basis.
Secondly I am an engineer and software developer, this is what I
mainly do as a day job.
Reading my profile, it may seem like it is archery, archery,
archery. However, there is more to me than that. I am also a self
described Ray Mears/Bear Grylls (or at least I like to think I am)
and know of several ways of starting a fire that doesn't involve
the use of match or lighter.
One of the things I would like to achieve is to find that special
person to share my life with. I am not too worried if I do or don't
find that special person as I am very independent, but having that
special person would be the cherry on top.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Through circumstances that were beyond my control I am now a
freelance software/ I.T/ Web developer and consultant.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am a natural problem solver, which is just as well as a lot of my
work involves having to troubleshoot problems and then write or
update manuals for other people to fix the problem in the field.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I appear a lot younger than my age suggests. I put this down to the
fact that I look after myself and refrain from drinking and
Also my hair is a pretty noticeable feature. It is lovely, thick
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
One of my favourite movies has to be the Godfather. I particularly
liked the way Al Pacino portraid Michael Corleone.
I have quite an eclectic mix when it comes to music. I have
anything from classical to just pure cheese.
I am a bit of a foodie, although I do love curries. I am pretty
good at cooking too and love baking things, however some of my
baking methods and recipes can seem leftfield: I have thought about
baking processes and worked out ways of making it better.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The Python standard library reference (total lifesaver
Bow and arrows
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Most of the time I think about my Archery and how I am going to
reach the goals I want to and what I am going to focus on in my
next training session.
I also spend a lot of time thinking about places I like to go.
Mostly ends up thinking about trips to Scotland or "Hertfordshire"
as Jeremy Clarkson likes to call it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Up to recently my Friday night consisted of archery practice. If
you want to get good at something you have to put in the hours.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a bit of a vice for a couple of TV soaps, namely Eastenders,
Holby City and Casualty. Although I can go for a couple of weeks
with out watching any of them, I do sometimes require my weekly and
in the case of Eastenders 4 times weekly fix.
