My self-summary
Rich in laughter & life, out to meet other positive, creative types that enjoy various interesting bits. I'm big on learning and skill exchange - the world is a curious and intriguing place. My favourite quote and a key guiding principle in my life (getting past the non-gender neutrality) is Bob Marley's "The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he aquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively". Whether or not I live up to this is for others to decide, but frankly I do a FUCKING AWESOME JOB.

OKC reckons I'm more sloppy than average and less love driven, but while I usually admire the algorithms, I would argue that societies priorities and the paradigm of these concepts is pretty distorted. We learn from mistakes, so I'd rather get out there and experience life than stand back and worry how I can make things perfect. And Love? I'm all for emotional involvement if it feels right - I'm more about appreciation and compersion than possession. I lean toward sex positivity where communication and respecting boundaries are integral. By nature I prefer practising forms of ethical non-monogamy and admire relationship anarchy.

Ultimately life is a bit of an oddity and as much as people seem to project otherwise, I don't think anyone really has a proper grasp of what's going on. I enjoy being facetious when it comes to superficial formalities and favour humour in most situations. Terrible puns, toilet humour, self deprecating humour and lowering the tone? Definitely. I was recently pruning apple trees with some others, when one of the women couldn't quite reach and innocently said she needed my extra six inches. How can you NOT make a joke of that? Manners don't cost a thing and so long as you treat people well and be there for them when they need it then I think that's what matters.

In a nutshell, I like CULTURE, MISCHIEF, HUGS and FUN.
What I’m doing with my life
I came back from travels in 2015 to study horticulture, completed a course with the RHS while doing a bit of garden maintenance, and got a voluntary role engaging the public in Kew Gardens to talk about bees and sustainability. My course results recently came back and I've passed everything - I'm currently on the hunt for work on private estates while looking into self-employed work. In Spring I was lending a hand around Grow Heathrow. For the immediate future I want to get my finances in order before reassessing. Certainly the gym will feature heavily in Winter and next year I'd like to hit up Noisily, Illusive, Shambala and No-Mans Land. For the long-term, land share is a nice thought to entertain. I also have some kind of dream to incorporate interesting plants at festivals and create nice magical environments that reconnect people with the world and each other. An Aztec ruin themed skatepark utilising hypertufa and sub-tropical bedding plants would also be immense. Yes *rubs hands together*

I typically enjoy meets, meals, movies & live local music with friends. Lifetime membership with the National Trust, I like a bit of adventure - places with historical / geographical interest & finding an old hidden pub with lots of character on the way is a nice bonus. Anime's good, gaming more a past-time but does a good job of bringing me back to it. Podcasts and debates on science and philosophy are awesome when doing activities which don't involve too much thought such as walking or constructing garden beds. Mycology, space & quantum stuff is pretty neat.. There's a wealth of stuff out there & I'm never bored.
Historically I've enjoyed bridging social connections & making things happen.
Always interested in different activities and ways of living.
I’m really good at
I have a morning ritual - I call it "The Terminator". First I crouch down in the shower in the classic "naked Terminator travelling through time" pose. With my eyes closed I crouch there for a minute, visualizing Arnold and I start to hum the Terminator theme. Then I slowly rise to a standing position and open my eyes. It helps me to proceed through my day as an emotionless, cyborg badass. The only problem is if the shower curtain sticks to my Terminator leg. It ruins the fantasy.

Reclaiming my mind from the hands of cultural engineers, who want to turn me into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that's being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Dnb, particularly liquid / atmospheric dnb. To that end, everything on the Good Looking Records label, Big Bud, LTJ Bukem, PFM have some sublime material. Neuro and Ultrafunk, Ragga.
90's Pop / Dance
Metal is so diverse and I love it all.. Power, folk, battle, viking, pagan, black, death, melodeath, thrash, gothic, progressive, funeral, stoner, various acoustic bits.. Metalcore and flailing arm nonsense doesn't do it for me. Nu-Metal.. not so good either, couple of exceptions. If I go for rap metal it'll be more along the lines of RATM.
Punk and skatepunk, metal / punk crossover
grunge
Trip-Hop
Hip Hop
alternative
All kinds of ambient
Psybient for those trippy moments
Classical
Trance & PsyTrance - Love Whirly Gig, Tribe of Frog. Planet Angel's music doesn't quite hold up to the aforementioned IMO.
Reggae, alone is brilliant, crossed over with dnb.. oh my word!
Techno, particularly minimal, breakbeat styled stuff
House, particularly funky & stuff with more energy, I like a bit of deep house, witch house seems interesting, I've gone off the old acid house as it just seems dated these days
Happy Hardcore! Hixxy, Vibes are favourites, Dougal did a fine set at Bangface 2013 so he deserves a mention.
Ska
Indy

Over my life I've played the piano on and off - I like to compose music & I'm making slow progress with Cubase and music production.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Bombing for peace is like fucking for virginity, levels of bullshit in the world, and various geo-politics that I've snipped out an already heaving profile.
On a typical Friday night I am
tremendous, thank you.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
One emotionally confused morning over my mates house I shed a tear to the end of Cool Runnings.. You know that bit where they've crashed and one of them's like 'You dead mon', and the other guys like 'no mon', then they carry their bobsleigh to the finish on their shoulders.

"They're so brave" I thought.

I was on a bit of a comedown.
You should message me if
something about me resonates true to yourself. Photos with big smiles, friends and a natural setting are favoured. If you're educated enough to understand alcohol is a drug then this certainly helps. Passionate, affectionate people and those who can communicate effectively are highly desired.

General enthusiasm is a big plus in what I'm looking for in others, people that contribute to the world in their own way. Like me you should be keen to meet people sooner than later - I carry the mindset that profiles are enough to gauge whether meeting is agreeable, without the need for more than a couple of messages. I'm human, approachable, and wouldn't be on here if I weren't interested in meeting people. So, please go for it and get in touch ;)

Also message me if you like hardcore german sparkle parties
