I am a complete goofball, a little bit geeky, and passionate towards all things in life. I love to explore new places and dream of one day traveling the world. I've spent the last few years vacationing in American cities (Las Vegas and San Francisco being favourites thus far) but there is so much more of the world to see and it's always better with good company to share it with.
I'd like to think I'm a simple-no baggage guy. I have a great career and my family and friends are most important to me in life. I've learned that money and opportunities come and go, but your friends and family are always there to help you when you need it. I hope one day I can pass down those qualities to a family of my own, and it's why I work so hard today.
When I'm not working I enjoy relaxing with Netflix, box sets and general binge viewing but that doesn't make me a couch potato. I try to keep active whether it's just a trip to the gym, air space or some badminton/squash (I'm terrible at them all but that doesn't stop me having fun!). I'm a bit of a movie lover so I'm at the cinema at least once a week. I also enjoy gigs, standup comedy and live theatre. I'm also keen to learn how to ski/snowboard and go hiking to explore Scotland's natural beauty.
It would be nice to have someone who would enjoy exploring the world, trying new things, sampling local eateries and also just loafing around on the couch on a lazy Sunday. I'm not here to play games.
If you think we might get on or you like what you read and want to chat then please just send me a message.
I can be a bit of a perfectionist so at work I tend to put in at least 110% and I try to take pride in the final outcome. At times I feel like I live to work instead of working to live ... A habit I'm trying to break (and also one of the reasons I'm here).
