My self-summary
"Life is short, break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
- Mark Twain

"I don't remember losing my hair, I just realised it was taking me longer & longer to wash my face."
- Harry Hill

Well, where to begin? I guess it basically starts with the photos. If you didn't like those, you won't be reading this! But hey, I'm an optimist, so let's just assume you fancy a read!

I have no photos of me holding up a large fish. (That is unless I happened to have been placing it next to some chips & someone took a photo I don't know about!)

I can play the guitar & dance salsa. I'm a bit of a romantic on the side, I have a kitchen & I ain't afraid to use it & I've mastered a few other rudimentary skills like putting the toilet seat down.

I have two beautiful daughters (16 & 18. We couldn't agree on names so we decided to number them instead.) They live with their mum & spend every other weekend with me.

I don't take myself too seriously but I won't play games with your feelings.

Well, if you got this far & you'd like to know more, you should definitely drop me a line. Or just say "hi". Or wave from the rooftops or maybe send up a smoke signal. After all, I'm not a bloody mind reader!

As I always say, "you miss 100% of the chances you don't take".

Well, I don't always say it. That would be silly.
What I’m doing with my life
Work-wise, I'm a creative retoucher for a branding & packaging design agency. Outside of work, I love to socialise, eat, drink & be merry. Classical concerts & opera pepper the landscape while the geek in me likes to keep up with all my favourite TV shows & movies. More travel is on the horizon, too.
I’m really good at
My job.

And making you feel comfortable, like we've known eachother for years.
The first things people usually notice about me
In person I look & seem a lot younger than my photos would suggest.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Interests wise, I'd say music is my main passion. My eclectic taste covers all the main food groups. Lots of guitars, orchestras & synths, minimal, maximal, if I like it I'll buy it, although after Oktoberfest down my local I don't think I'll be buying oompah music any time soon!

So, hugely varied but a good sample would be: The Beatles, Radiohead, Prokofiev, Björk, Amp Fiddler, Shostakovich, Tom Waits, Prince, Chopin, Debussy, Rush, Led Zep. Autechre, Jeff Mills, David Bowie, Stravinsky, Elbow, Boards Of Canada, Ravel, Sibelius, The Cure, Wagner, Gary Numan, Kraftwerk, Yes, Depeche Mode, LCD Soundsystem, Vaughan-Williams, Coltrane & Mozart.

Films are pretty high on the agenda, too. (Granted it's mostly science fiction, but I'm open to anything & have been known to watch the odd "chick flick" without even slightly moaning!)

As for books, I mostly read non-fiction (quantum physics is a particular favourite) but I love Pullman's "His Dark Materials" trilogy & Patrick Ness' "Chaos Walking" trilogy. ("The Knife Of Never Letting Go" is just astonishing, even if it is teen fiction!) Mitch Albom's "The Five People You Meet In Heaven" is another favourite & I love the James Bond books. (Charlie Higson's Young James Bond books were great, too.)

Also, I love going back to the source with classic children's books, Winnie The Pooh, The Oz books, Peter Pan & of course Dr. Seuss.
The six things I could never do without
Apart from the obvious, (time with my girls & air to breathe), I don't think there's much I couldn't do without. But those things I especially like include coffee, hugs & kisses (in my world they're one thing), bacon, the sound of rain when I'm not out in it, strong English cheddar & great sex.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Songs I've not written down yet... And what to have for dinner. Yeah, songs & dinner. And you. I think about you a lot, too. Who & where you are & how amazing it'll be when we finally meet.
On a typical Friday night I am
At your disposal.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
... Won't be on here, that's for sure. :)
You should message me if
... You've realised by this point how devastatingly handsome & hilarious I am!

I'm not an A-list member so I can't see who you are if you click "like". Also, it's unlikely I'll message you if I'm outside your stated age range. (That just seems a bit disrespectful.) So if I do stop by & you wished I'd messaged, well... Come say hello! No pressure! After all, it's supposed to be fun, isn't it?
