Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
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
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 photograph
about as well as Chandler from Friends!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
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

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
