I love serendipity. I'm always up for adventures to interesting places. I love being creative and all things arty and love trying new things.
I didn't think it needed stating but apparently it does. I am looking for a relationship but I'm also open to making new friends and travelling companions.
I collect comics, musical instruments from around the world and tin robots.
I love to travel. After seeing The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, I resolved: "To see things thousands of miles away, things hidden behind walls and within rooms, things dangerous to come to, to draw closer, to see and be amazed."
I've been to Madagascar working for an NGO studying lemurs, and have also visited Iceland, Morocco and India. I would love to have a companion for future adventures.
I also love spending time playing with my friends' extremely adorable kids.
I'm good at many things: first and foremostly, being a friend, an uncle, a playmate and a person... i'm good at making people laugh, usually at my expense. I'm good at painting, drawing, magic tricks, massage, making chocolate desserts and vegan pizzas, hula-hooping, DJing and actually getting people dancing, organising music and arts events, keeping children amused, helping people (especially bands and musicians I love), listening, talking, remembering things, enjoying life, enjoying my own company, being patient, staying calm under pressure, finding the BEST thing happening on any given night, reading films, making things, fixing things, imagining things, finding things on the internet... and making lists of course.

Ask me nicely and I might just tell you...
"Love is within man. It is not imported from the outside. It is not a commodity to be purchased when we go to the markets. It is there as the fragrance of life. It is inside everyone. The search for love, the wooing of love, is not a positive action; it is not an overt act whereby you have to go somewhere and draw it out." Osho
I'd love someone to have fun and little adventures with, so if you do like the sound of me then do get in touch.
“Really, the fundamental, ultimate mystery -- the only thing you need to know to understand the deepest metaphysical secrets -- is this: that for every outside there is an inside and for every inside there is an outside, and although they are different, they go together.”
