Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Tall, dark, big feet, hands, ears, smile... Broad-minded,
easygoing, generally curious about people and things, sometimes too
loyal and honest for my own good. Passionate when necessary. Never
had a driving licence in my life.
A journalist, a literary translator and a published novelist.
Thinking about perhaps moving to Brazil in the long run.
Always curious to meet you, as long as you enjoy jurassic old tapas
bars in Barcelona centre (not many of those remaining, I know.)

Movies: I go for the classics, and these include anything by
Stanley Kubrick, Italian comedy from the sixties, all movies with
Boris Karloff, old James Bonds and countless others: The Wages of
Fear, La Dolce Vita, Ed Wood, Invisible Man, Midnight Cowboy,

I have a very long history of listening to jazz and soul stuff...
In the past years I have become more and more interested in the
Brazilian greats: Vinicius de Moraes, Elis Regina, Jorge Ben, A.C.
Jobim et al. The Sex Pistols and the Dead Kennedys are some other
Food: mostly anything which is good.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Record-player (with records), Swiss Army knife, my old wristwatch,
travelling, black coffee, worthwhile persons in my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
