My self-summary
Finally accepted that I'm not in New York any more and editing this profile to match...

*edit- not quite so 'single'-ian anymore, but apparently I have to pay to change my username so screw that!*
What I’m doing with my life
Science of the biochemical and biomedical variety. Writing. Photography when I have spare wandering time. Other projects of varying credibility... (most of which are at the "Oh I should totally work on this... after I've had a nap" development stage)

Here is an example of a project I started before I got distracted napping:

I’m really good at
Setting myself overly ambitious goals and almost achieving them.

(Or giving up when I think of something better to do)
The first things people usually notice about me
Never actually asked anyone this...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Three joint favourite TV shows of all time:
Six feet under, The Sopranos, The Wire

Films: Monster's Ball, The Constant Gardener, anything by the Coen Bro's, anything by Herzog, In Bruges... other films

Some author faves: Terry Pratchett, David Foster Wallace, Kurt Vonnegut, Camus... others
The six things I could never do without
I am heavily reliant on many first world comforts just to maintain a neutral emotional state. (Especially the internet)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Screen play ideas. Ways to make large amounts of money by both ethical and less ethical means. How I would save the world from complex problems... WITH SCIENCE. How awesome it would be to have super powers. What the hell am I actually doing with this on-line dating thing. How much I need a cup of tea right now.

What to say to you based your attractive profile that will stand out and inspire a response but wont take me forever to write... Fuck it I'll just give you some stars and figure it out later.

Maybe I should make a dating video, it probably couldn't beat this though: http://vimeo.com/72397074
On a typical Friday night I am
Foiling everyone else's plots to take over the world...
Someone's got to do it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I will freely admit many strange things to relative strangers that I probably shouldn't, but I'll restrain myself on this public internet profile that also contains my name and face.
You should message me if
You're bored of clicking through profiles and want to take a stab at that human connection you signed up for in the first place...

I am quite laid back and my approach to dating has been a bit lackadaisical recently. I am looking to develop a serious relationship now, but I am also open to many different things, including non-monogamy, provided that it is based on honesty and clarity, and not just an excuse to keep shifting the goal posts for personal advantage.
