I sometimes feel as if I am sleeping through life, completely untethered from the world, indifferent to the impact actions have on my circumstances. No matter my successes: income; travel experiences; or professional achievements - someone has done it before, better, faster, and more dramatically. So do I resign myself to a lacklustre life of muted achievements? or should I double down and go for broke?
If you have any spirit in you - you know the answer.
I want build something no one else has every built before - hopefully I'll need to destroy a few things along the way. All good creation requires destruction of the old to make room for the new.
If you met me in person you'd probably think I'm a pretty normal slightly lucky professional who has his shit together. It would take you some time to realise the broken parts of me. But I'm tired of normal - give me self destructive passion - like I said I want to create something new.

The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The philosophical underpinnings of existence and how I can use any
knowledge I may have on this subject to become better at it. That
and making my amp go to 11...
On a typical Friday night I am
Traveling, hanging with friends, bantering at the pub followed by
pontification after we've had a sufficient amount of drinks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I admit nothing!
You should message me if
You want to get a drink and resurrect the lost art of conversation.
You know enough to start off easy and go deeper once we get to know each other better.
