Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
How's it going?
I'm Colin. I am 26 years of age, and grew up in Ireland for 22
years of my life. My life while I was there was cool. I was a
street musician, studying Business in university, a strange mix. I
am now a musician and I'm incredibly happy to be here in London,
essentially living the dream.
Music, learning new things and meeting and getting to know awesome
people are what my life is about at the moment, and I've been
wonderfully lucky with everybody in my life, but sometimes if you
want to find someone special, you have to look elsewhere. Looking
for some fun times and a good connection that may lead to meeting
the person I get to share a portion of my life with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My life right now revolves around playing a lot of guitar, writing
lyrics, recording material, gigging, meeting new people, keeping up
with my own friends, going to the gym, working and a bit of lying
down. I'm really glad that my life right now involves a lot of good
people and my aim is to keep it that way.
I love it when it involves coffee and really good conversation. If
anyone loves doing that, you are in my good books.
Also, lists. All the lists.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
A few things, thankfully. I am good at making people laugh, and at
the same time good at talking serious. I'm good at being loyal and
open about anything worth talking about with someone... by worth
talking about I mean relevant.
I'm great at cooking, I play a couple instruments, I'm a singer, I
read people really well, I lift heavy things off the ground, and
apparently I'm a really good storyteller! I've just been told I'm
really good at having an Irish accent. Not sure if that counts but
it's going in anyway.
The first things people usually notice about me

I've asked some people this question so that I can honestly answer
"He's a tank"
"What a lovely hugger"
"His laugh is pretty infectious"
"He doesn't sound like he looks"
"Nice beard, fella"
"Is he Irish? He is, I think"
"He drinks Guinness, stereotypical?"
"Fuck, his eyelashes are longer than mine!"

anything taste gorgeous. That said though, I tend to stick to stuff
that is proven to be nice already, and trying to improve on it.
Cauliflower is not allowed in my kitchen. Or Scallions.
Books:I'm BIG into biographies - Stephen Fry's, Richard Branson's,
Kurt Cobain's, Bill Hicks', Jeff Buckley's, Anne Frank's Diary, I
even read Jonathan Ross' one; It was shite. He is brilliant though.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
An occasional sense of well being interspursed with moments of
clarity and vision in relation to future aspirations
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either working or playing music or enjoying the company of good
folk for a variety of wonderful hobbies we are involved in. That or
sitting in, watching a movie and trying not to burn microwave
popcorn. Cook a roast dinner no problem, but microwave popcorn...
