Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I think this quote is a great approach for living: "Life is short -
Break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss passionately, love truly,
I am easy going, complex, and fun-loving.
I'm a very passionate person.
I'm very open minded, and appreciate people who are not afraid to
engage their brains, regardless of a differences of opinions - just
have a sense of humor about yourself and life.
I was born and raised in the UK, and have lived all over the world.
I am intrigued by cultures, and love checking out new places and
I would really like to meet someone special who shares a drive in
life, hopefully for the ocean, beaches and mountains. i love cities
too, but need balance of being in the water, or snowboarding down a
beautiful mountain too. For fun I like surfing, climbing, yoga,
snowboarding, travel, music/dance, photography/art/design, humor,
close friends & family, and film/movies.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm very passionate about an active lifestyle, and would prefer a
partner who has similar motivation.
I'm an IT consultant. It gives me great freedom and I get to work
with great clients.
I'm trying to reduce my carbon foot print, so trying to practice a
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
organizing trips and making things happen, be it something simple
like group dinner plans, or complex trips involving many people. i
really enjoy bringing friends together.
Friends also tell me i have good self-awareness and emotional
intelligence. I feel those qualities help me to be calm under
pressure. (i fair well in stormy weather.)

Too many to list, but let me give it a go...
i really enjoy autobiographies. just read Measure of a Man by
Sidney Poitier, Along the Way by Emilo Estevez and Martin Sheen,
and Life by Keith Richards.
this year i also got really into Don Winslow, especially Savages
and Kings of Cool.
Just finished reading "Long on Adventure" by John Long. very
inspiring to say the least.
"How to breathe underwater" by Julie Orringer - wow!
I love so many movies, ranging from art house to commerical. i'm a
movie-slut for sure - as are both my brothers. Just saw Skyfall,
the new Bond film. It is a great reboot of a classic series (go
Brits with style! - yes, i do like wearing a suit). Although late
to watch it, i just saw Tsotsi (2005). Not sure how i didn't see
that one because it was amazing. Others include Fight Club,
Bridesmaids, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's nest, Seven Samuari, Lucky
Number Sleven, American Beauty, Treasure of the Sierra Padre, M,
The Piano...i could go on...
Music: This is a long winded topic, but i'll try to be brief. If
stuck on an island and given only 3 artists to listen to it would
be Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bob Marley and Elvis. Huh? Yup, kind of
diverse. i love dance music too, and the electronica list would
drag. feel free to ask, for i love talking and sharing music. i
grew up with punk, so that also holds a dear spot in my
I tend towards spicy food in general. love tons of veg and fruit.
if having to be specific, most asian food works well for me.
Organic options :-)
Love Central Kitchen, Flour and Water, Heirloom, Slow Club, Plow.
Just went to Sumiya in Santa Clara - great izakaya in the bay area!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family, friends, surfboard, climbing shoes, camera, and a
passion for exploring (life).
i'll ignore the "six things" and add the almond croissant and 24
hour cold brewed coffee at Coffeebar SF. i don't know if they're
really "can't live without", but they are damn good!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
that i read 50 Shades of Grey. ha ha. although i think it was
terribly written, anything that gets people to read/explore
sexuality is pretty cool. know thyself.
