My self-summary
I enjoy meeting new people and exchanging points of view. I am open minded and I want to find someone who gives me a point of view that I had not considered before.

My main interests are the arts and politics. Especially films and books, but I also enjoy theatre, music and stand up comedy as well. I like playing games too, both board games and computer games. I try to stay on top of current events. I am interested in equality, economics and gender politics as well.

I am equally at home indoors or outdoors, I started running last year and I am finding it a great way to relax. I have always enjoyed country walks or exploring a new town or city.

I am a bit of a geek and have a lot hobbies which I dabble in, from making games to blogging. My goal in life is to be an author or political writer or documentary filmmaker or all of the above. I like trying out the unusual things you find in London, recently I have tried Secret Cinema, The Lost Lectures and The Festival of the Spoken Nerd. If any of these things sound interesting to you then I am sure we will get along.
What I’m doing with my life
I work running elections and my free time is spent working on my various creative projects, my novel, my game and my blog.

When I can get time off work I travel. Last year I visited The Netherlands, Austria and Poland. This year I am going further with China, Russia and Iceland. I plan to visit as many countries as possible.

Generally when I am not writing, crafting, working or traveling I like a few drinks or a game with friends on a quite night. Or if there is an interesting event on somewhere or a gig or an exhibition that sounds equally fun.
I’m really good at
Remembering strange pieces of trivia and weird facts. Did you know that if you could put the planet Saturn in a bath big enough, it would float? I am good at coming up with ideas to do on a night out - even if it's just suggesting a drink in an out of the way pub which will be less busy than normal.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am polite, there's nothing to be gained from rudeness
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My taste is quite eclectic but I am always keen to have something new recommended to me. There's a list of some things that come to mind: Apocalypse Now, LA Confidential, Waltz With Bashir, Primer, Tinker Taylor Solider Spy, The Bridge of the River Kwai, The Usual Suspects, A Scanner Darkly, Waking Life, Alien, The Shawshank Redemption, anything by Wes Anderson or the Coen Brothers. I also like going to Secret Cinema a lot.

I try to keep on top of current films. I especially like documentaries (Errol Morris is my favourite director), when done well they entertaining and moving. I'll watch most things apart from reality TV.

In terms of music I like a bit of everything (I know that's not very helpful). Right now, I am mainly listening to VNV Nation - I discovered them recently and can't get over how good they are. But I am interested in most music that is broadly "alternative". I will give anything a go apart from bland X-Factor pop or misogynist R&B.

There are too many good books to name but some which have made a big impact on me are Brave New World, The Wasp Factory, The Player of Games, The House of Leaves, and Dune, to name but a few. I am reading Perdido Street Station by China Mieville right now.
Six things I could never do without
Books - always keep reading
Music - I can't go anywhere without something to listen to on the way
My watch - being on time is important to me
My phone - sorry, but I am lost without it
Films - always a good way to spend time
Something to look forward to - what else is life for?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future. I like making plans. The more ambitious the better.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out for a drink with some friends. I can usually be found around a cinema. Failing that, I am probably playing board games or at some variety of event
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I might fill this in later
You should message me if
You think we have something in common or you or know something I might like. Or you would simply like to chat
The two of us
