Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've been living in London for nearly 10 years, with a few breaks,
including a stay in Northern Sudan and two years in a small town in
Northern Ghana. I was then supposed to move to Barcelona, but it
wasn't quite right so came back here. I have crossed the river for

appreciate passion in others.
I don't think that there is anything uninteresting, it is just that
you don't know enough about it or understand it. I am truly
passionate about the subjects and people that I care about, and am
always up for a good 'discussion'

I am lucky enough to have friends across the world, which makes for
great holidays. I just got back from Peru, where we trekked up to
Machu Picchu with a baby (not mine!) strapped to our backs.
I have a wonderful urban family in London, who are incredibly
important to me. Most of my family are farmers so I occasionally
disappear off into the country, returning with milk and apples.
I’m really good at

I'm rubbish at knowing about music, but know what I like and listen
to a lot of Radio 6 and love Jarvis Cocker on a Sunday (or any day

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't think I have a typical Friday night. Could be pub, film,
dancing, theatre, dinner, travelling out of London to see people.
