I'm a happy motivated person who would rather get to know someone
by chatting to them than summarising myself online.
What I’m doing with my life
Listening, watching, reading, cinema-going, photographing, dancing,
eating out, drinking, swimming, travelling, laughing, yoga-ing,
snowboarding, diving, writing, and trying to make the most of our
I’m really good at
all sorts of things. I don't seem to be particularly good at
filling out online dating forms though.

The Bridge and The Killing and series like True Detective. Love the
cinema - Wes Anderson, Michel Gondry, Simon Pegg, Tarantino,
Jean-Luc Godard, a good British spy thriller and the occasional
trash. I love watching film trailers.
The six things I could never do without
My passport to get me out of Australia frequently.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I can head off to next. Next stop Japan for snowboarding and
checking out monkeys in hot pools.
On a typical Friday night I am
Happy (I do like my job but I like the weekends more).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Putting up a profile photo of my feet has invited some very odd
comments from foot fetishists so I'm not particularly keen to
divulge much more at this stage. I like the smell of rain on hot
You should message me if
You'd like to find out more...
I should note I am not looking for a sex slave or to be someone
