Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have no idea what to say to entice you, except that with me
you'll find yourself engulfed in a state of pure bliss from which
you may never emerge.
Ok, so much for truth in advertising. Here are some random
I'm half-English, which means I'm eccentric but a gentleman.
I spent the '90s hanging around Washington DC and then bailed out
for the greener pastures of The Greatest City On Earth. (uh,
Ballmer, hon... allegedly...)
I'm a kinda easy-going, creative type... except in traffic. By
nature I'm enthusiastic and also sarcastic as my people are from
the North of England. I'm a genetic smartass, I guess.
I am good company and have an easy laugh.
People often comment on my brain and what it produces - which is
kinda weird, I guess, but it's true!
I was a journalist and commercial artist for many years. Now my
business card says "Strategy." But my passion is music and I have
devoted a lot of time to writing, recording and performing.
I am beloved by children and animals.
I appreciate the high arts but practice the low arts.
I enjoy travel, good grammar and great beer.
I have attended a rock concert at a lesbian bar in a gorilla
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Crazy adventures vs the quest for contentment. I am hoping to meet
someone who can join me on both.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making you laugh. At some point, you will do a spit take. That's
just how it is.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My two favorite books are "First Love" by Turgenvey and "Collected
Stories" by Graham Greene. I like Hunter S Thompson and Ralph
Steadman. I like books about music & art. I just returned to
fiction after a long absence... I was an English major so, yaknow,
got kinda burnt out on the classics...
I like movies in general, especially on the big screen, and will
watch most anything. I favor off-beat movies from Terry Gilliam,
Coen Brothers, Kiewslowski, Jean-Pierre Jeunet. I like the US edit
of The Professional better than the French version.
I have a real love-hate thing going with the TV. TV is brain candy,
and shows lose their flavor just like gum. But I enjoy comedy and I
like documentaries, especially nature docs. Did you see Spencer
Wells' "The Journey of Man: A Genetic Odyssey?"
I'm a musician, so I love many kinds of music (and am maddeningly
intolerant of others). Live music is best! Also, living in Bmo
after DC means luxuriating in free-format radio... WTMD, WPFW,
WRNR, WBJC... If you have not discovered WKHS (90.5), from Kent
County Hugh School, you are missing out.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
five senses and a sense of humor
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
from the neurotic to the sublime... The fate of the world and how
inhumane humans can be. Tax deductions. What the cat is thinking.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Drunk and in jail... uh, I mean, visiting my elderly aunt.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My life has been pretty wild ride so far, and I'm laughing about it
(most of the time). But I'm ready for something else.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to hang out and see what happens. I have my flaws but I
have a good job, my own car and I don't live in my mom's basement.
