Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a fan of silly hats and exploring. I'm mostly Irish. I've been
in Sydney for a couple of years and I've no plans to leave.
I'm an environmental engineer and I'm slightly obsessed with water.
Odd perhaps, but the whole topic is fascinating. It takes in
knowledge of the whole breadth of science, social and technical,
from physics and chemistry to geo-politics and economics.
Also, apparently I talk with my eyebrows really high on my face
when I get animated, which is pretty often.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
The usual questions about expanding horizons of forms of love, the
mechanics of relationships (I'm in a beautiful, challenging, and
supportive open relationship), sex, knowledge and expression.
Trying to figure out whether I'm looking for some sort of
relationship or just kinky sex. Do I want to be tied up or tied
down? By whom? How many to be involved? All at once?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
When I'm not geeking out over some way to make engineering
artistic, I climb, cycle, practise yoga, draw things and scribble
I'm pretty good at becoming fascinated, confused, disturbed and
delighted by the world and the people who make it.

I reckon that if you've got a favourite, you've not tried enough

Catching my attention in the first pile of books I pick up are:
Aldous Huxley, Jonah Lehrer - Proust was a Neuroscientist and EF
Schumacher - Small is Beautiful. If I could find one about
bio-mimicry and water as well, that'd be a pretty good list.
As for films, this could take a while as well - All that Tarsem
Singh has ever touched, Almodovar, Dead Man, V for Vendetta, A
Beautiful Mind, Wes Anderson and other stuff that I can't think
Next I guess music - I play the sax (though not very well), love
electronic and jazz and anything melodic, plus blues, bluegrass,
techno, Willie Nelson, Mark Lanegan, Isobel Campbell, Ellen Allien,
Richie Hawtin, Mark Knight, Bo Diddley, Le Peuple de L'Herbe,
Bloody Beetroots and Charlie Bird. That's a pretty wide-reaching
Can't be bothered with food just now. I cook, I eat, the whole
process completely relaxes me. Is that enough?

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

of stuff I enjoy having near me, climbing gear, road bike, stand up
comedy and big groups of mates at a restaurant talking nonsense.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why so many people here seem to think sex is often just physical
and that connection is most often sexual. Sex is great but finding
it is easy; connection is more rewarding but so much harder to

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm not sure that there is a typical Friday night. One might
involved all the pubs and gigs, the next might involve staying in
reading stuff and the one after might be sitting 'round a fire in
the middle of a field with a few mates. Hard to tell.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I make notes of the music and films and authors people have written
in their profiles.
