Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
29 year old geek, lamington baker, musical writer, cat lover and
I'm a writer and recently saw my words come to life on the stage as
part of an excerpt of a musical I've written. It was a fairy
amazing experience, although I'd put a lot of that down to the
amazing talent of my composer, director and actors! Now to find a
producer to get the full show up!
I spent 2012-13 travelling backpacking around the world and have
been to some amazing places over the years. Favourite places
include doing aid work in Timor Leste, visiting the Chernobyl
reactor and the abandoned city of Pripyat, working in London and
exploring cities like Tokyo, New York, St Petersburg, Helsinki,
Paris, Prague and Rome.
I have a cat, Frazil, that walks on a leash anywhere - from the
snow to the beach or around the city - and does tricks. Her best
trick is 'sleep' which she practices constantly.
I feel very strongly about the "which is bigger, the sun or the
earth?" question on this site.
An inability to sing will never keep me from karaoke.
Routes to my heart are many and varied, including: cultural
studies; Doctor Who; foods I've never tried before; people
watching, moral arguments and the minutiae of modern interactions,
and; interesting people.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In 2012 I left working in marketing agencies (advertising and PR)
and while I still enjoy the work I do, have never looked back. I
went backpacking everywhere I could and am now working freelance
while I decide on the next step career wise.
As I mentioned above, much of my free creative time is spent on the
musical I'm working on. We had some great reactions to the short
version and now I just need to find a producer and wrangle my
composer to finish writing the music! You can learn more, and
listen to some of it, here if you're interested:
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can tie a cherry stalk in a knot with my tongue, but have never
found a use for this skill due to saturation in the cherry based
clown employment field.
I am also particularly skilled at locating and hatching adventures.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm blind in my right eye, but people can rarely tell, so I guess
they notice I appear to have two working eyes?
I'm told I'm loud and talk a lot. I'm fairly fashion dyslexic so
perhaps it's whatever sartorial cacophony I've decided looks good

"We need to make books cool again. If you go home with somebody
and they don't have books, don't fuck them." ~ John
Books are hard because there are just way too many, but in a pinch
I'd say my favourite series is the Thomas Covenant Chronicles by
Stephen Donaldson but my tastes vary widely. Isobelle Carmody will
always have a special, unfinished place in my heart.
"She said her favourite
Godard film was Alphaville
and I felt ill..."
I love any movie by Charlie Kaufman, David Lynch or Christopher
Nolan. I like early Tarantino and later versions of Blade
Runner. I love Godard, Truffaut and Kurosawa and am equally
happy watching a Disney musical.
"I hate television. I hate it as much as peanuts. But I can't
stop eating peanuts." ~ Orson Welles
I'm most definitely a TV geek. Dramas like Deadwood, ROME, Girls,
Breaking Bad and Boardwalk Empire through to comedies like Flight
of the Conchords, 30 Rock and Archer and sci-fi like Doctor Who,
Battlestar Galactica and much more are all safe bets.
"So control your desire to curse
While I crucify the verse..."
I have fairly eclectic taste in music, but I'd say rock, ska and
musicals would be some top recurring categories. You know what's
been rocking my socks off right now? The self titled album by San
"After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one's own
relations." ~ Oscar Wilde
I have a preference for asian cooking - especially Thai,
Vietnamese, Chinese and Japanese - but anything with pork is a
winner usually. Brazilian BBQ is a favourite and if you like great
burgers and fried chicken I know the best place in Sydney. ;)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The letter 'e'
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The internet and the future of media, ideas for short stories,
novels and theatre, what drives people to do what they do, the
nature of happiness and many, many other things...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
While I've done long term monogamous relationships, I'm equally
down with polyamory (although not with fact the word mixes Greek
and Latin roots) or more non-traditional setups.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Update: You're OK with the fact I'm polyamorous. I'm currently with
a partner whom I care for deeply but we're both open and extremely
happy this way, but I wouldn't want to mislead.
You're aware of the basic relative proportions of the sun and
earth, or perhaps you'd like to join my kitten and I on our daily
I like telling, and collecting, stories, so if nothing else message
me if you're keen to swap some. Terribly cheesey jokes are good
"Did you hear about the cheese factory that blew up in France?
They're still going through de-Brie!"
