My self-summary
Sharp, and lithe, with a quiet intensity.

I enjoy conversation that challenges,
sunshine on my face when working,
the release into the physical that exercise brings.

Trying to understand the world, or at least the small corner of it that I occupy.
What I’m doing with my life
Happily, passionately, at work.

I spend a few months of the year in Sydney and San Francisco-- seeing family, working with colleagues and hanging out with friends. And I'm very comfortable in both cities.

But always glad to be back in London ---extraordinary cosmopolitan city, center of all the trade routes of all the world, cultural singularity. Also just a generally cool place, though one with unspeakable weather. Home.

I'd like to meet another intense, passionate person.

Your work should be part of you, and inform the way you see the world.

Writers, artists--- fellow travellers---feel comfortable,
with their rhythm of solitary and intense creative work cut by louche social affairs. The dangerous flexibility in time management (at least when deadlines aren't looming) is also nice.

Or activist or NGO types, changing the world, slower than we'd like, with that quiet moral passion and more uncertainty than answers. Though I fear they may find me dangerously lightweight -- frivolous, too distractible by good gossip and intellectual candy.

If you can tell a great story.

People who live exuberantly, in both work and play time.

Sufficiently bolshy outliers should just ignore all this, and contact me anyway. At worst, we'll do great email.

I am emotionally available, and would love to be smitten.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've a serious crush on Nadine Gordimer--- her moral weightiness, the underlying optimism, the mix of personal and political. And damn she's sexy.

American boys in their 30s, writing about comic books as if they were life, do not speak to me. (miaow!)

Alice Munro! Whoo!

The Jennifer Egan. Man that was fun. Audacious. Still grinning, and it's been two years since I read it.

Serious writers and artists, of all sorts.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
well, everything really. Mostly what I'm trying to create.

Rereading all this, I sound austere. I'm not. Exuberant and warm, loquacious, gawky and perceptive, I listen well. At a slight angle to the usual world, which is alluring but not without its costs.
