Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Currently I spend most of my week in a five star hotel, training
people and that. It involves amongst other things a lot of sitting
down and from time to time, standing. Away from the factory I
attempt to dabble in all things creative, be it photography,
writing or building 100 foot bronze effigies of famous dogs.
Actually the last one was a lie. But I have considered it.
I am infectiously calm, can be funny in a weird ‘Vic and Bob’ kind
of way, and have lots of quirky West Country-style traits that
A raucous laugh
Taking pride in everything I do
A tendency to over-speak my mind
Driving a tractor (only on those quiet weekends)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Busy forging a glittering career in Human Resources. Bored yet?
Trust me, it is great fun and I get great discounts.
I draw certain similarities to Rodney Copperbottom from Robots.
Actually the only similarity is that I am a small town dreamer who
has arrived in Robot City to make it big. Actually, I mean London.
London owns and I am enjoying exploring the city with my mates (a
heady collection of school friends, colleagues and a couple of
suspect individuals from Liverpool) and love trying out new
restaurants. We aren’t afraid to save up then bin a few hundred
quid on a Michelin Star restaurant. I HEART
I spend a bit of time discovering secret bars around town. Did you
know there is one hidden in a fridge and the only way to get in is
to speak to a ‘gatekeeper’ and ask for ‘The Mayor’?!
At the moment I am busy saving up to buy Ableton. I’ll need a Mac
Most of my zany adventures are captured on my blog:
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Saving money then spending it on ridiculous things like cars that
are quick but die very quickly.
I LOVE entertaining and have been told that I am the most
approachable person in London. Not my words, the words of a man
collecting for the RSPCA near Kilburn. I am not the most organised
person at work (I can show you my mid-year appraisal) but take
great pride in organising my social life so I catch up with all my
friends; far away or otherwise.
I am great at planning holidays. Seriously. In 2003 I organised an
underage holiday to Ibiza and we only got robbed twice. The best
lessons are learnt the hard way.
I am a great listener.
I can quote the following, pretty much word for word: Alan
Partidge, Absolutely Fabulous, Airplane!,
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My extra eye or my tail. On a more serious note it would either
have to my height (a monstrous 6 foot 3) or my –ahem- colourful
The tail fell off.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Not that much of a reader, but I love the idea of having a
plethora of coffee table books, even though I am currently without
coffee table. Apart from these I tend to jump on the literary
bandwagon such as Dan Brown, David Nicholls and the Beano.
Movies: LOADS! Generally I am a fan of comedy especially the more
absurd ones such as Airplane!, Naked Gun trilogy, Four Lions, Monty
Python etc. Generally I think the 80’s and mid-nineties gave us
more great films than the entire century before. I am particularly
fond of Back to the Future ‘When this baby hits 88mph, you’re
gonna see some serious shit’, Die Hard ‘Now I have a
machine gun, ho ho ho’ and 10 Things I Hate About You
‘Pipe down, chachi!’
Other honourable mentions have to go to Casino, The Hangover (I
DEFY anyone not to love this film), Mystery Men, Cloverfield and
Shows: Erm, Peep Show? (the comedy, not the activity). Sex and the
City is awesome. I’m not ashamed!
Music: Gotta love Jazz and House Music. Imagine my joy when I
discovered a genre called Jazzy House! I like most stuff except
Garage, RnB or that shit called ‘Grime’. I DJ in my spare time,
usually DnB, House, Electro and US Garage (VERY different, believe
me). Other honourable mentions go to the inimitable Phil Collins
and ever since X Factor 2009, Rage Against the Machine. Forget St.
Nick, these guys truly saved Christmas!
Food: EVERYTHING, in any setting, anywhere, with anyone. Just don’t
get me to make a Christmas pudding as once I tried it in a
microwave and almost caused a nuclear accident...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I want to take obvious things like friends, family, SATC, air,
water etc as given. Aside from these, here we go...
1. My one pint Starbucks mug (with Starbucks coffee in it)
2. Hawes and Curtis (EPIC EPIC EPIC shirts)
3. Pisco (it has made drinking so much more fun)
4. My hotel’s Concierge (great for jumping restaurant reservations
5. Llamas With Hats
6. Walktall.co.uk (I have size 15 feet and normal shoe shops laugh
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If Phil Mitchell’s face can get any redder. Also how weird it would
be if I came across my boss on this website...
Generally I think about food (‘mmn, doughnuts’), cool places to go
in London and how my mates and family are getting on.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Getting my groove on in a dirty underground electro club in London,
or in a cool restaurant which serves Amuses Bouche before the
starters, or trying a new bar in hiptastic East London.
Whatever it is, my plans will certainly involve my mates, a nice
colourful shirt and a whip. Actually probably not the last one,
unless I am off horse riding. Which is unlikely in a night club.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Apart from being a SATC fan?
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are insanely funny, slightly odd (I love a bit of quirk!) and
are very positive. I prefer tall girls but I won’t hold it against
you if you aren’t 6 foot tall... honest.
Don't message me if you describe yourself as 'a contradiction' i.e.
'outgoing but shy' etc. Seriously, read it back to yourself.
So if you are after a tall, big-footed, dance music aficionado with
a Welsh/West Country accent and a passion for loud shirts, then
look no further!
