My self-summary
I spend most of my time standing on my balcony, gazing out and contemplating life's great mysteries, like why are we here, what is the meaning of it all, and why am I not married to Stephen Fry. Especially that last one.

At the end of university I decided to be adventurous and went travelling Australia... for two years. I'm thinking about writing a book about it all but have realised that most people would not believe half of the stuff that happened; between an angry farmer pointing his gun at me in bed on a lazy Sunday morning, to crying with laughter at a dancing giraffe 1000 miles away from the nearest town, it's understandable.
What I’m doing with my life
Two years of travelling made me slightly bored at being poor all of the time, so when I came back to the UK I got myself a decent job. As much as I love my job and work very hard at it, I try not to let it rule my life. To give you a quick idea, I put on a suit and tell people what to do.

I've just moved to Birmingham after being tempted away from my old job. I probably need someone to make me fall in love with the city rather than have lingering thoughts on her hot northern cousin Manchester.
I’m really good at
When I'm not pondering things I play bass guitar, read, and make phone apps. Concerning the most popular app I've made, I keep getting told, "Oh, it's like 50 Shades of Grey but an app!" It's always nice to get compliments, however my writing is far better than that (and it seems over 250,000 people agree, although it sadly got banned recently).

I can also solve Rubick's Cubes pretty quickly. On the plane back from Australia I taught the guy sitting next to me to do it as well. One way to kill the time.
The first things people usually notice about me
That they have no idea where my accent is from. When people do get it right I give them a cute little paper hat and a pat on the back, because when it comes down to it I'm a nice guy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
His Dark Materials, Nineteen-Eighty Four, Googlewhack Adventure. Imagine that spread over all books and you get the idea. Oh and A Song Of Ice and Fire; there's no need for anyone to write anymore medieval fantasy, the genre is complete now.

TV is pretty much all the big american shows at the moment (both comedy and drama), and then UK stuff like Red Dwarf, I'm Alan Partridge, QI, Blackadder (not series 1 of course). And Adventure Time, which if you have seen and dislike I don't believe in you like I don't believe in Santa.

Films, my joint favourites are Forrest Gump, Terminator 2 and Inception, although something like The Man From Earth or The Thin Red Line will also fill me with joy. Music is anything but country western, and when I say that I mean just that. You can check my playlist if you like. Genre isn't the important thing, it's whether or not it sounds good, and all genres have good artists and all genres have bad artists. Except country western where they are all bad artists and should be sent to the naughty corner to think about what they have done.
The six things I could never do without
The Internet
Clothes (otherwise it gets too cold)
My second desk drawer (where would I keep whatever is in it otherwise?)
My ability to read minds (I'm only kidding... or am I? No I definitely am)
My ability to count to six (it's come in handy once again!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If I were to become Batman, where would I buy a grappling hook from? And what mine and Stephen Fry's wedding would be like. I'm thinking small beach wedding with Nightwish playing an acoustic set.
On a typical Friday night I am
Post work drink, going on an adventure or relaxing. I don't really have a typical Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't walk around my flat naked as often as I should.
You should message me if
I'm looking for someone who is self-assured enough to take a compliment without thinking there's a hidden meaning behind it, to be confident without thinking that translates to being loud all of the time, and someone who actually thinks differently without saying, "I'm so random/crazy!" I don't play games with people and don't expect anyone else to either. If you've played a computer game that isn't Call of Duty then that also gets you points.

I've recently moved to Birmingham city centre so I'd like to meet someone who likes to talk about everything and nothing, and go on adventures. Oh and not be an axe-wielding psychopath. That's quite important.

So message me if you fit that description, want to chat about anything at all, but especially why cats are so awesome :)
