Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
To start to understand me, I suggest you watch the film Safety Not
Guaranteed and get yourself comfortable for a long profile
In the film Safety Not Guaranteed, I can relate to "Aubrey Plaza's"
role, with the struggles in my life. I am stronger in my will and
determination than most people expect and even when I was at my
lowest point, I still didn't give up.
I read so often about the bad boy character, and I may not be that
type from your first looks. But with my life experiences and the
roles that have included sensitive roles in Security and helping
out Disney Special event and a GamesMaker in the Village working
with the athletes of both games. I am sure you couldn't find such a
person like me if you tried.
I have just turned 38 and in my years, I have seen far more than a
lot of people normally see in their lifetimes. I enjoy adventure
and for a fatty like myself, I can move like a ninja and I like to
watch how people interact with the world.
Besides everything, I do get lonely. I get aggravated when I don't
get the jobs I work hard for because they can't see the bigger
picture. And I have always dreamed of a family of my own with kids.
But I am no closer and I would like to see my own child grow and
make the world a bit better in their own way. :0)
I sometimes cry when I am happy or sad. Sometimes when I think good
thoughts and when the underdog wins in films. I understand because
in some ways I can relate to the story or the emotional
The next time you read a good book, ask yourself was this a story
based on a real person / event or a work of fiction. I enjoyed
reading both the book and watching the movie The Life of Pi,
because it really happened. All those critics who said it was full
of fiction, didn't remember the story. I did, I remembered enough
to know it was a true story.
My true story is full of pain suffering and lost hope of wonder ,
lost dreams and new discoveries. For a time that seems long ago, my
dream was to live and work in the USA. A country that at the time
was my second home. As the child of a American citizen, I got my
legal residency and whilst I had it, all was possible. Then a few
months after the attack on the twin towers, on the anniversary of
Pearl Harbour. A callous decision by an airport operator, lead to
me being hurt. Sandwiched between and fighting my way out of the
doors of their train. Overridden by their operator, without
So Today, I am fairly better. I have my down days and my good days.
However I have come a long way from my darkest days and I hope you,
you who read's and sees the beauty in me. Will take the chance and
share a moment with me. Maybe it will work or maybe it won't. But
you can always reflect upon the day you read about me.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For the last decade, I have wondered where I could go and what I
could do, after being injured quite seriously in an accident at
But then along came the Olympic and Paralympic games and an
opportunity to prove to myself, I was ready to return to the living
life once more.
So today, whilst i am unsure of where my future path will lead, I
do believe at least there is a future for me on the horizon.
I am a Disney fan and I would really love to work for Walt Disney
Imagineering, as they have in their past created much more than
theme park rides. Plus, I worked for them, way back in the mid
1990's through to early 2000.
I invent, I trouble shoot and I create novel solutions to problems
I encounter. It has been in the past a distraction whilst I healed
and has kept me busy in the mind. I do play video games, like GTA5,
as well, but the ideas, be they old and new. Keep my mind ticking
The latest, has promise, but lets see where that leads.
Finally, I know this sounds silly, but I hope I can try out at the
British Skeleton try outs in a few months time. I didn't realize
before, as I thought you had to be excellent at the skeleton
bobsled. But it appears they are looking for fast short distance
sprinters. I am pretty fast at sprinting, especially for a guy with
a really big belly. And I have had the good fortune to have run
with Usne Bolt (I am fairly sure it was him now), on the station
platform of the Javelin Train. I did not know what he looked like
as I was more prefixed on my recovery than following the Olympics
So there you have it. I would love a family, you and to enjoy the
rest of my life, as I have lost so much, because of injury. I do
cry sometimes when I reflect upon that fact, and whilst watching
movies, both good and sad.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding a way to be unique. I once gave a rose bush to a lady for
valentine's day. I like to cut film and can do wonders with
pictures in photoshop and any number of other photo manipulation
I love figuring things out, I really like creating and I would love
to be a attraction designer.
As like most boys, I play video games and I also like making them
too. My Minecraft worlds are littered with designs like La Defence
in Paris, recreated in a Lego like model.
I guess you could describe me as a nerd, a geek or an eccentric
British gentleman who can make things more interesting.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm tall. My blue grey eyes. My stature and my size.
If you get to know me, it's how nice I am.
My light brown hair, now with grey and my turquoise eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

My favourites list is way too big.
Recently I enjoyed the book No Strings Attached, unlike the fifty
shades of grey like book, this one was on the Jim Henson Creature
workshop. I liked it, but also because it brought back memories
from the opening of Disneyland Paris, back in 1992. I was there in
the opening crowd and he is John Eccleston, the former presenter of
the Disney Club show and a puppeteer who's recent work includes the
cute rat in Horrible Histories :0)
I buy a fair amount of books for my kindle application, I do read a
wide variety of stories and of recent I have also enjoyed Sarah
Silvermans biography "Bed Wetter", and a book from a former Disney
World cast member, who's title I forget.
I have seen far too many films. One I was thinking the other day
was Miracle Mile, a story a bit in the style of The Day After
(stars Steve Guttenberg and it's like Threads) and When the Wind
Blows. Really touching and yet haunting as well.
I really enjoy Disney films, a lot of animation, especially ones
made by Pixar, Blue Sky (formally BOX) and Banana loving Minion's
I saw half of Man of Steel the other day, and watched Epic as
I like most kinds of music, including bluegrass, skia, country,
rock, heavy metal, but I am not a fan of auto tune created music.
And stuff like "I whip my hair back and forth" and most Justin
Beaver songs (I don't like people who abuse animals)!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My Family, (Mum, Dad, Brother and an extensive bevy of cousins with
there own kids.
My friends :0)
The wonder of a child's imagination
Seeing something new for the first time :0)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Finding somebody to share my life with.
Thinking about an entry for a design competition. To transform a
ghost town in Latvian.
Thinking about a lot of things that keep me up at night.
Wondering about the weird questions you get on here including the
I understand the why they are being asked, but still some of them
seem really weird and irrelevant.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Besides going to the gym on a Thursday night and job hunting. I
haven't got much happening on Friday nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I was a Games Maker volunteer at both the Olympic's and Paralympic
games. I had a good time and I felt at home. It's funny in some
ways. It was like I was a resident of that village. I remember the
welcoming smile and brief conversation each day I may have with the
Cuban Team's coach. wave hello at the South Korean delegation and
North Korean delegation as I collected the mail for my chief de
mission. I also remember the Canadian Moose, all cute in Canadian
Red with a white maple leaf on his side and one of the heroic
athletes from Team USA.. Who in my opinion had the courage of
Captain America or any Avenger, as he waged war in wheel chair
I still have the fond memories and the pictures too. Working for
Two great teams. The Polish and the US Virgin islands teams :0)
They where great teams to be a Games Maker assistant too.
