I'm looking for a wickedly funny, kind man who wants to make me
What I’m doing with my life
I run a bespoke sustainable food and wine company which means my
life is full of all the good stuff. I also run a cooking school and
teach when I can.
I’m really good at
Making feasts for friends, laughing, finding the lighter side of
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - This is so hard. Ok, so in the past few months I've read
Flann O'Brien, Patrick White, Austen, Carver, Cheever, Lawrence
Durrell, Fitzgerald, MFK Fischer. Currently reading the Dorothy
Parker compendium and Confederacy of Dunces for the second time.
Tender is the Night is probably my favorite book of all time.
Film etc - the original Ocean's 11 or basically anything in
technicolor especially Elvis movies set in Hawaii, most Woody
Allen, Wes Anderson, To Kill a Mockingbird, Hitchcock, good 70's
Australian like Wake in Fright. I love every Bill Murray movie ever
made and have probably watched every David Attenborough
When it comes to music I get into mostly indie stuff from all eras
and try to keep up with new bands as much as I can. The past week
has been Afro funk from the 70s which is amazing (check out African
Scream Contest) and my new Sergio Mendes record. Other than that
Great Lake Swimmers, Blond Redhead, scruffy 70's Australian punk,
Neil Young (but only Harvest), The Go-Betweens, Nick Cave, Colleen,
Television, American Analog Set, The Clientele, Au Revior Simone,
The Walkmen, Of Montreal and sometimes a bit of Yaz. I especially
like hearing local bands I have never heard of before.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'm about to cook and who I'm cooking it for.
On a typical Friday night I am
Eating with friends or recovering from my week. My life is pretty
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Mixed tapes still make my heart flutter.
You should message me if
...you are the kind of person that likes to be challenged, is
smart, relaxed and can hold both a good conversation and their
liquor. You take pride in treating people well. You take notice of
what is happening in the world and give a shit. You don't mind
dancing all night and then falling into bed. Swimming in the dark
sounds like fun to you. I look forward to meeting you!
