Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a down-to-earth and friendly guy who enjoys exploring all that
London has to offer and getting away from the city whenever I can.
Having studied Russian at university I'm always on the lookout for
things that have a Russian element involved - and not just
I am particularly proficient at laughing heartily at the smallest
things and spending time with people who are positive and happy. I
am definitely a glass half full kind of person and appreciate that
quality in others too.
Outside London, I love travelling and hiking - the more adventurous
the better, in fact! The world is an inspiring place and I try to
see as much of it as I can!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in the metal industry, oddly enough, which I guess is a sign
that anything is possible no matter what you study. I spend as much
time as I can travelling - the further off the beaten track the
better - and enjoy hiking and cycling, particularly where there are
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I went on a cooking course quite recently which has certainly
helped to hone my skills in the kitchen! I certainly like to think
I can rustle up a good plate of food!
I would also say I'm fairly decent at (in no particular order)
skiing, laughing and listening, although I don't think I've ever
done all three simultaneously with much success.

At the moment I am working my way through the back catalogue of
Booker prize winners - White Tiger was particularly good. I am
interspersing this endeavour with keeping in touch with Russian
literature (Dosteovsky, Solzhenitsyn and Chekhov are particular
favourites), and books such as A Hundred Days of Solitude, The Book
of Human Skin and The Dream Life of Sukhanov have made a positive
impression in recent times. For some light reading, Michael
Connelly's crime books always fit the bill.
My film tastes are wide ranging - anywhere from the Shawshank
Redemption to Forrest Gump to Jurassic Park. Generally, though, I
enjoy films with a bit of oomph about them (in other words, that
make a bit of an impression) so The Pianist and A Beautiful Mind
fit into that category well.
Musically, I don't have strong preferences for any particular
artists or group but certainly don't like rock or heavy
Food is one of the joys of life and I am very open-minded, and am
keen to experience more Japanese cuisine in London over the next
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends and family, my passport, a world map, the great outdoors, a
positive attitude and a partridge in a pear tree.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to live life to the full and where to travel next!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a regal title as a result of owning a one foot square plot
of land in Scotland!
