My self-summary
Work seems to have completely taken over my life recently - see below. When I escape, I swim and do ashtanga yoga, walking round London as much as possible with an audio book on my headphones.

I like language and philosophy. I used to write a lot and want to get back into it again. So far, this has mainly been poetry, but I'm moving more towards play-writing and novels. First, though, I've promised young relatives a story about a flamingo and a bonobo monkey who pogo down the Limpopo.

I smoke more pot than I probably should, but over-compensate by bolstering the Oxbridge education and intimidating finance career with ongoing literary exploration, cryptic crosswords, compulsive exercise and a host of interesting neuroses.

There's also a strong likelihood I'm too cynical for my own good. I get bored by fluff and prefer to challenge my attention span by finding beauty in intricate and poignant details. I think sad people are far more engaging than happy ones.
What I’m doing with my life
I did a PPE degree and had no idea how to sell out, once I realised I wouldn't get funding for a philosophy PhD*, so I trained as an accountant on Jersey, (this was actually an accident - I thought Deloitte were an investment bank when I applied).

I moved to London a couple of years ago, working in finance for a music major then a TV production company. Now I'm the CFO of a small (international) TV Channel. We make all our own content and play out to about 25m homes. I haven't slept since I started. I'm really enjoying it, but I seem to have quickly assumed responsibility for everything and never actually leave.

*It was going to be really good: taking Mill's assertion that it's better to be a slave than a servant, because at least a slave has freedom of thought, and applying it to the China- Tibet situation; arguing the Chinese army are the oppressors, but have had their freedom of mind destroyed by a government that trains them to shit on command, whereas the shackled Buddhist monks can reach enlightenment through their private mediation.

A challenge
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Spoonerisms, portmanteaux, how the fuck I'm going to find money to settle payroll at monthend when we're about to buyout another company; whilst my share issue keeps getting delayed, exchange rates are terrible on all our revenue, and half our customers refuse to pay due to withholding tax issues. Once I ejaculate some statement along these lines and have a large whiskey, though, I can be pretty good company.

You are generally disillusioned with everyone and often need to take the edge off life, but take great responsibility with a sense of humour and can still be reduced to tears by the sheer wonder of life. Or if you just want to slap me and tell me to get over myself because I could be cute if I wasn't such a melancholic prick.
