My self-summary
Hi

My name is Alec, Its Celtic for "he who will be mistakenly called Alex for the rest of his life" apparently my parents thought it sounded like a strong name.

If i had to describe myself from the outside looking in I'd say I'm a bit of a dreamer and romantic at heart. I'm not looking for any one thing in particular in a person, I think having a rigid set of standards is a recipe for disaster and frankly I want to be surprised by people in general.

I love anyone who has an encyclopedic knowledge of a subject, if a person talks about a subject with a real passion they're onto a winner with me.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently work as a graphic designer, its something I got interested in when I was a kid and I've been swept along with it ever since. However I've recently dabbled with the idea of doing something new but I'm not entirely sure what yet.

In my spare time I do a bit of free lance work as a blacksmith. I developed an interest in metal work while i was in university and picked up a few skills to help me along the way.
I’m really good at
To quote Liam Neeson "I have a very particular set of skills"....

Ok I'm not quite that good but I've spent a few years going survival camping without a tent or much else. I've also been told I have an incredible sense of direction.

The reason behind peoples actions. I appreciate you cant ever REALLY know 100% what a person is thinking but its always interesting to try and gain a bit of perspective.
