My self-summary
I guess you could say that I'm the British equivalent of the American dream. Grew up on 'the wrong side of the tracks', been working since I was 10 years old, was the first in my family to graduate college & get my professional qualifications. As a result, I take pride in being relatively self-reliant, just need a partner now that I can let into that world!

I have a talent for not planning my weekends. I'm typically hitting people up on a Friday to see if anyone wants to go out. Not sure this makes me spontaneous, just reactive!

When I'm not working you'll find me doing a combination of keeping active, hanging out at the coffee shop or finding a source of comedy that will make me laugh!

What do I mean when I say keeping active? Climbing, running (I have run 3 half marathons and am yet to experience a runners high!), biking, weights, hiking and anything else that pops up. I played rugby at University and would love to find a regular pick up game that is at a sociable hour! Need an extra body for a team, I'm game to try!

If I set myself a goal to do something, it will be done...even if that is a terrible idea...I have been known to do things without the correct gear or training!

I'm adding new photos as I find acceptable ones, but I prefer to live in the moment and not through a lens.
What I’m doing with my life
I moved to the US 7 years ago for work and really enjoy being in the Bay Area. I work in finance for a large IT company and will talk about it if you really want me too.

I like to travel although still haven't done enough. The last 5yrs have been more city focused, but starting to think I need to see the amazing sights outside of the cities as well. I also need to venture south of the equator at some point!

Btw, I'm already a permanent resident, so no visa complications from me...just in case you were wondering, & yes, I've been asked.
I’m really good at
Being there
Being on time
Not being understood
The first things people usually notice about me
My amazing head of hair
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Comedy is my #1 choice in pretty much every medium. Films, stand-up and TV shows are all fair game.

Movies: Most comedies, Shawshank, the latest Batman trilogy...

Music: Oasis, Blur, Queen, Coldplay, Foster the people, Neon trees, Fun., REM, Third Eye Blind, Intercept, U2... just to name a few. I've also recently determined that I like private Karaoke rooms... space to experiment.

Food: Spicy food, BBQ, Curry, Sushi, Paella, Seafood in general

Favorite books: Yes Man, Freakonomics, Superfreakonomics, Think like a Freak, Googlewhacks, Are you Dave Gorman?, America Unchained.
The six things I could never do without
The Economist
My phone
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How it's possible for the majority of people to have above average confidence and why liking the Oxford comma is a thing!
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably the gym followed by drinks with friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not good at listening to doctors. I was told when I was about 8 years old that I should never play sport again. To me this meant switching from playing outfield to in goal for soccer. The doctor gave up trying to stop me by the time I was 11
