Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Sean, and I live in the mid-eastern suburbs of
I love meeting new people, finding out about what drives them, and
their interests. Even if I don't have anything in common with
someone, I feel as if these are the people that can introduce me to
something completely different, which is never a bad thing.
That said, there is nothing like a good conversation about which
season of Survivor is the best, with both (or more) of us speaking
over each other.
My greatest guilty pleasure is sitting outside on a verandah while
it is raining/storming, having a beer/coffee and just listening to
the rain and thunder.
I love animals, did you guess? I'm fascinated by all of them, from
small little stick insects to big male giraffes weighing a ton and
a half. It's why I want to work in a zoo, and share my enthusiasm
with everyone that comes and visits. If we ever meet up, be warned
that I can probably talk your ear off about them.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
At the moment, I'm working as hard as I can to achieve my dream
job, working in a zoo. I'm currently volunteering and doing
teaching gigs (mainly primary school) at a privately owned animal
sanctuary in Victoria, building my experience as much as
Also finally finished my Cert II in Captive Animals, so now I'm
just applying for every job I see.
As you can imagine, my weeks are pretty full and hectic, but my
time at the animal sanctuary spurs me on, even if the shifts I do
down there are usually on my days off. And as such, any chance I
can get to relax, I take with both of my exhausted hands.
I've also been working through all the hoops to get my Irish
citizenship. Once I get this, it means I'll be able to go over to
Europe and be able to work in most Western European nations fairly
easily. I've got a romantic idea of being the Australian keeper of
Australian animals in a foreign zoo!
I'd like to think I'm an active person, recently joined the gym,
but I also do enjoy just spending the day lounging around watching
TV and reading books.
I joined a work netball team at the start of last year, but in the
three/four months that the season ran for, I fractured my wrist
(and was out of work for eight weeks), and tore a ligament in my
foot (missed another two weeks). It was awesome fun, but I decided
to retire my short career for at least a year as I can't afford
more time of work. Haha.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm great at talking about animals and zoos and anything else
related. I fly from one random point to another, so be prepared for
completely unrelated facts, that I somehow connect in my head. I'm
working on it though, particularly since I've started doing the
presentations at the animal sanctuary.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My stunning red hair!
If I'm at work, it's also my enthusiasm to talk about whatever
animal I'm working with at the time. I just start talking about
them even if no-one has asked me any questions.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I tend to be all over the shop with my favourite things.
Books range from The Tomorrow Series (which I've read at least once
a year since 2000), Earth's Children series and A Song of Ice and
Fire, to reference books on human pre-history and animals and etc
:p. Also, can't forget good ol' Harry Potter, and The Hunger Games,
which I freaking love both.
Movies are a bit hard. Nothing really tends to stand out, even
though I see a few of them every year. I'm going to update this
whenever I've seen a new movie. That said, I saw 50-50 recently,
and absolutely loved it. Seth Rogan's best movie, and has Anna
Kendrick in it. Aww yeah!
Recently saw Short Term 12 as well and really liked it. Very low
key and Brie Larson was robbed of at least a couple
Shows are easy, but long. I love my television. Can't get enough of
shows like Community, Parks and Recreation, Survivor, Amazing Race,
Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, How Met Your Mother, Happy Endings,
the list could go on.
Recently smashed out all nine seasons of the US version of The
Office. Absolutely loved it. So much so that I'm thinking of
Music is the hardest. Can I just say I listen to triple j and be
done with it? I'm so eclectic with my taste it's incredible.
Some of my favourites include, The Killers, Temper Trap, Noah and
the Whale, The Living End, Muse. There is so much more though.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Coffee - It's become an addiction. If I don't have my morning
coffee, I tend to suffer from headaches later in the day. That
can't be good right?
My job at the Sanctuary - As weird as this sounds, my weeks don't
feel complete when I haven't gone down there at least once during
the week (due to sickness, commitments at other job, other
circumstances). Animals are my number one passion, and I don't
consider been down there as work as I enjoy it so much.
My new car - Had my new car for about 18 months now, so not really
new anymore. Love it though and will drive anywhere for
The outdoors - Doing anything outside is immeasurably better than
Sport - In particular AFL and the Bulldogs.
Books - Nothing like going for a long hike to the middle of
nowhere, finding a quiet place and sitting down to read for a
couple hours. So good.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I'd do if I just dropped everything and moved to Iceland. Or,
when I eventually get my Irish passport, Europe. I've never done
backpacking before, but it does sound awesome.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Basically what everyone else does. Some nights I'll be out at a
pub, others I'll be at home watching some TV or reading a book. I'd
like to think I'd be open to doing anything. I've always loved the
idea of dropping everything and going on a late-night drive down to
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a closet dancer. If you somehow get the security videos of when
I'm at work, you'll see me dancing up and down the aisles to the
store music. Shamefully, the songs include greats from Taylor
Swift, ABBA, Lady Gaga and an assorted bunch of other artists. I am
very good though.
Second, I can't tie shoes doing the one loop method. I've tried but
can't do it. I'm a bunny ears man.
