Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an independently minded - and spirited – creative
I'm quick witted, sometimes; half-witted, other times. I'm
passionate about the world - have put it to rights several times
now, but, alas, always forgot by the morning. I spend a lot of the
rest of my time helping with campaigns, social projects and various
causes - mostly lost ones, always noble ones.
I can be opinionated, but more than willing to eat my own words -
if they've been artfully prepared and creatively presented.
I love any culture – music, films, art, books – that's off the
beaten track. I'm outstanding at eating good food; and sometimes
even cooking it. I'm a big fan of scenic detours in all
I'm a big fan of great buildings ancient and modern, travelling
slowly, humans, mischief, a rip-roaring night out, waves,
unconventional thinking – and overusing - dashes.

when it comes to film I tend to be what is technically referred to
as a pretentious tosser. I love italian cinema - la dolce vita,
