I am a graphic designer and illustrator by trade so enjoy anything arty or crafty. I have been told that I patient and kind and good at making people laugh. I have a quirky, dry sense of humour which you might discover if you send me a message. I am quite inquisitive and interested in a great many things from science and nature through to ancient history. I'm pretty laid back but not horizontal. I can't spell which is worrying for a graphic designer that has to write copy on occasion and always wear odd socks.
I’m in to:
Having a beard
Design (of course)
Ridiculing people who play golf
Playing with the football (not watching it)
Playing scrabble when I should be working
Contemplating the meaning of life whilst drinking alcohol
Not wasting things
It's Indie rock and roll for me. I also like Grunge, Jazz, Rock, Classical and Hip-Hop. At the moment I can't get enough of The National, British Sea Power, The XX and Arcade Fire and of course The Smiths.
I listen to Classic FM to chill, 6 Music to discover and radio 4 to learn.
I’ve been told I have very soft hands, which is probably due to never having done any proper work. I can also make bras and chickens out of napkins, so your in for a treat if were to ever go on a date.
I tend not to read as much as I would like to but I do like a literary classic so I can see what all the fuss is about. I tend to do more listening than talking. I have learnt that I don’t gel well with angry people or drama queens.
Remembering useless facts and forgetting useful ones
Making toad in the hole
Fixing your computer if it goes wrong
Not losing my wallet
Shabby chicing old furniture
Anything by Dickens
Mary and Max
The lives of others (I like subtitled films)
Game of Thrones
