My self-summary
Travelling the world. Still. My friends joke that I should have a world passport. My home town is Melbourne, Australia, and I guess I still call it "home" even if I spend much more time elsewhere now.

I get along so well with other open, intelligent, passionate and fun people.

(Currently I'm dividing my time between San Francisco and Berlin)
What I’m doing with my life
I wish I knew! Right now: taking every opportunity that comes my way and trying to make the best of this world and this life.

I've tried the "let's plan my life out until retirement" thing and the whole "settling down with a mortgage" thing. It hasn't stuck yet, so now I'm discovering what's next every day.

So whilst I currently work in the busy business world, but one day I'd love to give up the professional life and open a bar or a coffee shop.
I’m really good at
Making hours on an airplane pass like they are seconds; getting into passionate debates and questioning beliefs (including my own); massages; adapting to new places and discovering the culture and people; finding myself in bizarre situations; not having enough free time; and punctuation.
The first things people usually notice about me
Usually my accent, except in Australia. Otherwise it would be my clothes or my eyes. The clothes because I've picked up items from all over the world, and I get occasional questions or comments on them. And the eyes? You can be the judge.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I used to read an enormous amount, mostly of fiction. And then came the internet and then work. So now I read a lot of non-fiction and a lot of blogs and other articles online. I have quite a backlog of books to be read, as I do tend to procrastinate with many and jump straight to others - like anything by Hunter S. Thompson or Neal Stevenson (for example).

Movies: Again, I have quite a backlog of films still to watch; many from years ago. I like asking people what their favourite films of all time are, and adding those to my list. I'm hoping someone will help me watch them! Some of my favourite films include Blade Runner, Fight Club, Donnie Darko, Shawn of the Dead (and Hot Fuzz), Fear and Loathing, Barbarella, Logans Run, and so many more. I've also been watching a lot more documentaries recently.

Music: Very broad. I used to be really into EDM, but not the cheesy crap (I'm talking good techno, psytrace, progressive and other shaking-your-arse fun stuff). Now I've softened up again, and I'll listen to a lot of cruisy alternate music. Grew up on rock, folk, punk and goth. Love Skinny Puppy, The Cure, PIL, David Bowie, Joy Division/New Order, Bob Dylan, U2, Depeche Mode, The Chemical Brothers, Pink Floyd, Kings of Leon, Don Johnson Big Band (look it up), Primus, The Smiths, Gus Gus, Ani Difranco, Fat Freddy's Drop, etc, etc

Food: So important. Life is short, why eat badly? Did I mention I like to cook? That, of course, doesn't mean I do it often - my preference is to cook a banquet for a huge group of friends, or to prepare something special and time consuming.
The six things I could never do without
I spent a long time getting rid of most things I own. I recon I could do without almost anything. But let's write some things down:

1. People
2. Coffee
3. Connections (to People)
4. Affection
5. Hedonism
6. Passport & Laptop

I saved the materialistic ones to the end :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What to do next. What I could have done before. Everything I'm passionate about.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either (a) on a plane to somewhere exciting, or (b) with friends, probably in a bar/gallery/club/sportshall/theatre/restaurant.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to be a geek. But they're cool now right? right?
You should message me if
- You have a high match rating with me (I'll probably be fascinated by you)

- I'm one of your quiver matches

- You find a mistake in my punctuation

- You've got a fascinating story to tell

- You're enjoying the world around you

- You can suggest cool things to do in the city I'm in

- You'd just like to

If I don't respond, then msg me again. I'm polite and honest: if I'm really not interested then I'll say so. So if I don't respond it usually means that I got too busy with life and I'd appreciate a reminder.
