My work is stimulating and rewarding, which I believe to be a basic human right, not something that only happens to the lucky, creative few. Work, though an important part of life, is not life itself, and I believe in the importance of "working to live" rather than "living to work".
I'm attracted to intellect. I readily admit there are many different intelligences, though I'm naturally drawn to people who like history, politics, literature, science, and art. We simply have more to talk about and appreciate together. I like pop culture too, though I'm not about to spend hours sharing favourite Family Guy moments or arguing the merits of each Doctor. I'm witty, though refrain from excessive sarcasm, and prefer a generous spirit to meanness or triviality.
My ethnic heritage - German, Greek, and French - does not make me a 'mummy's boy' who is incapable of conversations outside the scope of 'da gym bro' or things that are 'fully sick'. Please exclude me from this stereotype. On the other hand, I have drawn other significant traits from this ancestry; an appreciation for "culture", a way of thinking and communicating that is both passionate and deliberative, the ability to cook, and soulfulness.
I moved to Melbourne from Brisbane, which is a fine city, though could not compete with the draw of a place like this. I'm spellbound by what's on offer and am grateful to live in a city that deserves its title as the world's most liveable.
