Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Travelling, politics and cooking (though I hate washing-up!) are my
main passions. I’m currently planning my next trips (Beirut and
Myanmar) and like to have a few weekends away in the pipeline.
Spent a few months of 2012 in Central America (I love Guatemala!),
getting my outdoor fix and failing at speaking Spanish! Came back
from a longer trip to the US and South America last year.
I’m half Italian, so my cooking’s influenced by that, in spite of
me trying to improve my mediocre attempts at cooking Thai and
I have a couple of tattoos - a wanky Latin one (no regrets ;)) and
little bike on my foot, which is mainly due to an accident whilst
mountain biking in Bolivia.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I really like weekend mooching (markets, galleries, new food places
etc.), getting the paper on a Sunday (sometimes accompanied by a
hangover) and sitting in a pub or café with friends. During the
week I fit in as much as possible and can normally be found out for
a run or at a policy event, followed by drinks or dinner later in
Grew up in the London suburbs, and am back working and studying
here, via a few years in Bristol and a spell in Leuven (Belgium).
Live in Oval now.
Am a trainee lawyer, having previously worked in European criminal
justice projects. Currently considering my next career move, given
I'll be qualified early next year and I want an adventure!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Socialising! I will talk to most people.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I’m a little fiesty (possibly my Italian side…) and love a debate!
I’m told I have a dirty laugh and a dry sense of humour, but this
might not be true.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Travelling and exploring;
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Trying out new things, places and next destinations to visit.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Generally with friends, with an alcoholic beverage in my hand, or
eating tasty food South of the river.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm shockingly bad at table football and playing pool - if either
of those come under things you're really good at, this is likely to
either massage your ego or bore you due to my ability to lose every
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I like men who are intelligent, witty and who can hold their end of
a debate. If they are a bit competitive and might play board games
whilst drunk or head out to a party and dance til breakfast that’s
a good start! A willingness to wake up and decide to go on a
spontaneous trip, or hike is also welcome, as is a liking for
Someone who laughs lots and doesn’t mind making a fool of
themselves would be great. Preferably you don’t have an affinity
towards Eric Pickles, a great need to be accompanied to Skopje and
don’t eat lots of celery.
