My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
====================
Very quick summary: I'm British, originally from London. Since 2012 I've been working remotely and travelling full time - I spend a month or two in each place. I live for the outdoors. I love to hike, ski, climb, paddle, fly. Right now I'm preparing for Burning Man, then a month kite-surfing in Dominical Republic, then a couple of weeks in Cuba. After that who knows. Stay in the Caribbean? Central America? Rio? I want to be back in Chamonix for the winter season, but where should I go in November?
====================

I was abandoned by my parents shortly after birth, and it was left to a friendly family of urban foxes to bring me up. They didn't do a bad job teaching me to navigate the mean streets, but my only friends were an albino hedgehog and a pigeon called Derek.

Some time around the turn of the century I left my formative life behind and moved to the big city. I'm still trying to work out if the streets were paved with gold. I'm pretty sure the grass was greener, but I never found the promised pot at the end of the rainbow. The search continued for a few years...

More recently it became all too apparent that one can quite easily be run over by a bus tomorrow. Or any day. I want to make sure if that does happen, I won't regret a minute of my life. So I've been on a few adventures, and I plan to continue. Perhaps I'll find someone equally as determined to live a totally awesome life? It would be nice to have a partner in crime.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I spent most of my 20s hard at work building a fabulously successful but not particularly profitable web business, which I finally rid myself of a few years ago.

I'm usually now found drumming my fingers on the desk, or doing nerdy things for cool companies... Recently I've spent quite a bit of time hacking web stuff for Spotify, which I only do three days a week and entirely remotely. All I need is a decent internet connection and my home is the office.

When I'm not hard at work pretending to be a tiny cog in some sprawling corporate machine, I'm usually planning my next adventure. Recently a common theme has been throwing myself off, or down mountains.

I was based roughly in London for a few years - and it's still where my heart calls home, but 2013 brought bigger adventures. I capitalised on working remotely by packing my bags and leaving the UK behind.

Since then I've been city-hopping every few months. I'm regularly back in London, but the plan is to continue travelling full time for a few years. Perhaps I'll get home-sick and end up back where I started, or get stuck somewhere amazing with someone amazing. More than likely I'll loose my cushy remote-working job and have to find (gulp) a proper one somewhere. Until then I'm enjoying the ride.

Adventures. Here's what I've been up to:

February 2012
For the last couple of months I've had the good fortune to be living in the ski resort of Niseko, Hokkaido, Japan. I doubt I'll have the opportunity to do a full snowboard season again, so I'm savouring every minute of this one.

March 2012
I'm finishing my Japanese adventure with a four week road trip round the southern islands... Just got back from three days hiking in amazing Yakushima, and tomorrow I'll be hiking the largest active volcano in Japan - Mount Aso. It's turning out to be an incredible trip, but I don't think I'll ever want to drive again after 4,000km in 25 days.

July 2012
I'm on a yacht in the Greek Aegean sea, learning to sail. It's great fun. I fully intend to spend a couple of years sailing round the world before I die.

September 2012
I just got back from a week learning to paraglide in France. I've got the bug - it's as good as anything I've done on a snowboard.

November 2012
I spent the last ten days flying in the foothills of the Atlas mountains just outside Marrakech in Morocco. Despite some of the worst weather in years I'm now apparently a qualified paraglider pilot.

January 2013
Three weeks paragliding in Mexico was without a doubt my best adventure ever. The conditions in Valle de Bravo were perfect for flying every day. I notched up thirty hours of flight in fifteen days. I can imagine this becoming a yearly pilgrimage. I just arrived in Utah for a few weeks of snowboarding.

February 2013
Two thousand miles driving through seven states and twelve ski resorts. Not a bad little road trip. I saved the best to last. Jackson Hole is beyond epic.

March 2013
Oh god I very well may have bitten off slightly more than I can chew this time. I'm in France starting a five day speed riding course. Speed riding is a combination of skiing and paragliding. Dangerous and exhilarating - check. My problem is that you need to be a pretty decent skier to even contemplate it. I found out today that I'm nowhere near that good. If this page never gets updated again you'll know what happened to me.

June 2013
Wow - big changes. Bye bye London, hello Berlin.

August 2013
Berlin is awesome. Laid back and friendly. I can see this competing with London for my attention next summer. Looking forward to San Francisco next month.

October 2013
Just arrived in San Francisco - lucked out with a sweet Airbnb apartment in Lower Haight. I think I'm going to enjoy this city.

2014
More paragliding in Mexico, then back to San Francisco in the spring. Summer was great in Paris, a whirlwind tour of Europe in the autumn, followed by Chamonix in France for a winter of skiing and mountaineering.

2015
Where next? South America is calling me! I would love to spend a few months in India, but I don't think their internet could cope with video calls. Suggestions on my next destination?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm a Glastonbury veteran, but I've sworn never again. Secret Garden Party is much more my cup of tea, and Burning Man will hopefully be ticked off in 2015. If I must stay up late, I love parties that are a bit out of the ordinary - fancy dress, fetish, filth...

A few years ago I decided that recreational pharmaceuticals were a net downer in my life, so I've been a temple ever since - eating fresh and working out. It's done wonders - I'm healthy and happy.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You don't mind me asking you out for a drink straight away. I don't have time to chat online for hours, and you get a much better idea of how you click with someone over a coffee. So be warned.

Also... if we hit it off, I'll probably want you to drop everything and come travel round the world with me for a few years. If that isn't the most exciting thing ever, then we're probably not a match made in heaven.

Oh, and look... if we're not at least a 80% match, either you need to answer some more questions or we're probably not right for each other.
