My self-summary
I just moved to Lakewood Ranch, Florida after 5 years in Silicon Valley. I'm originally from Cambridge, England, and retain a crazy accent.

I like beautiful and interesting things, though the only way I know how to make such things myself is via computers. I pour my soul into what I do however, and am gradually becoming good at it.

I enjoy great conversation accompanied by coffee and/or wine, and despise nightclubs. I occasionally employ devastating charm, though I'll never admit to it.

I'd really like to meet somebody who has some or all of these qualities - maybe that's you:

- A great mind
- A quirky, questionable or downright bizarre sense of humor
- Hair
- Independence
- Complimentary of my cooking
- Something that's not on this list
What I’m doing with my life
Working hard to build a future where I can afford to do what I want. I feel pretty fortunate that life gets better every year, and that I have a great job that I love doing.

Recently I completed a few milestones - received my green card, bought my first house, even finally got my orthodontics off! Now that I'm in Florida there are new goals - finding a girl, meeting new friends, and buying a motorbike :)
I’m really good at
Independence, plus occasional rationality. Sometimes brevity.
The first things people usually notice about me
My ludicrous British accent.

Sometimes it makes people think I'm smarter than I am. I try to correct them but then they assume I also suffer from acute British modesty disorder. Eventually, though, the facade always falls away, usually around the first time I demonstrate my "American accent".

The six things I could never do without
Breaking the rules
I spend a lot of time thinking about
A few things really:

* How to de-clutter and simplify my environment
* Why people are the way they are
* My cat, Gandalf
* What I'm going to do when I'm no longer an employee
* Elegance
On a typical Friday night I am
Working on my house, chilling, playing with Gandalf, plotting and scheming
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My favorite shop is Crate and Barrel. My apartment looks a bit like one of their showrooms.

I sometimes wish I had more psychopathic traits. Alas I score very low on that scale.
You should message me if
You're intelligent, interesting and independent, and actually read my profile (bonus points if you tell me what I've missed out).

You're comfortable in your own skin and can form your own opinions about things. You're equally at home with a cup of coffee or a glass of good wine :)
