I can't go through the day without music, or more than a few days without my bike or an evening with my friends. I once ran a film festival and I sang in a rock band for a while. I believe that there are so many amazing things to do and learn out there, it seems a shame to restrict yourself to one or two.
In my spare time, I write. I just finished a novel which I'm revising for publication next spring. I'm also part of a team developing a new board game, which is great fun.
I'd like to think I'm pretty decent at writing, and my singing voice isn't bad.
I can cook, but am much better at making it up as I go than following a recipe.
My reading list began with a lot of scifi in my youth, but now I read a lot of other genres of fiction, as well as popular science, economics, history and psychology. There are few authors I try not to miss - China Mieville, Neil Gaiman, George RR Martin, Nick Hornby, Neal Stephenson, Michael Chabon, Charles Stross, Malcolm Gladwell, Michael Lewis, Patrick Rothfuss, Terry Pratchett. Plus the classics - Kundera, Steinbeck, Hemingway, Douglas Adams, Iain Banks, Fitzgerald, Tolkien...
I really enjoy quirky films like High Fidelity, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Stranger Than Fiction or The Life Aquatic, but I also love a popcorn action or scifi movie - Heat, Inception, Aliens, Jurassic Park. I go through TV series on Netflix - The West Wing, House of Cards, Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, Fringe, Breaking Bad and The Killing are some favourites.
I also love games of various kinds, usually those I can play in company or that have a good story - board games like Cards Against Humanity, Risk:Legacy, Pandemic and Battlestar Galactica get a lot of playtime with my mates, and I also like a great video game from time to time - The Last of Us, Final Fantasy VII, Metal Gear Solid and Mass Effect are some favourites.
I love food, and there's very little I won't eat. I try to eat healthy most of the time but I occasionally succumb to a pulled pork roll, burrito or curry. I'm a little obsessed with avocados.
Something to write with
One of my bikes
How much Shania Twain would freak out if Brad Pitt became a rocket scientist.
We share similar tastes and you want to share some awesome new band, film or book you think I'd like.
You feel like we'd get along.
