My self-summary
I'm a passionate and cultured young whipper-snapper who studied Fine Art and now works with children of the autistic variety. I was going to write that I'm laaaaid- back (with my mind on my money and my money on my mind) but I don't think anyone would admit to considering themselves uptight...
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a full-time Primary and Infant School Special Needs Assistant (a PISSNA) and a part-time drummer and guitarist in a couple of North London bands you've never heard of. Just about to embark on a masters in Educational Psychology with a view to becoming a...you've guessed it...Educational Psychologist.
I’m really good at
- Playing the drums like an animal/Animal
- Playing the guitar like Andres Segovia on a very bad day
- Running really fast over extremely short distances (I can do the 10m in about 2.3 seconds)
- Not getting angry...ever. Not sure I know what it feels like to get angry. I was mildly peeved once though.

I also won a nationwide poetry competition at the age of 7 and am yet to fulfill the promise of that auspicious day...
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes, my positive demeanour and my lack of trousers.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm not gonna list ya senseless, but these are indicative of wider tastes:

Books: The meandering prose of Marcel Proust. The subtly suggestive horror of H. P. Lovecraft and E. A. Poe. Anything by or about musicians i.e. This Wheel is on Fire by Levon Helm or The Dirt by Motley Crue.

Film: On one end of the spectrum, the stark and sleek perfection of Kubrick and Coppola. On t'other, the touching humanism and simple truth of Shane Meadows and movies like Withnail and I. Also any movies about music...i.e. The Last Waltz by Scorcese. If I ever come across a film that I like as much as that one...well, then there'll be two movies that I really, really, really quite like...like, lots and lots.

Music: The beautiful beats of Boards of Canada. The impossibly perfect compositions of Claude Debussy.

Food: Not quite so opinionated here...but I bloody love the stuff. If it tastes good (and most of it does) then I'm sold.
The six things I could never do without
- A stringed instrument
- Something to hit with a stick
- A comfortable place to recline
- The company of a nice lady
- My hands
- My eyes
- My ears

I put seven things, what a renegade.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The size of the universe in relation to myself and the impossibility to the human mind of it being either finite or infinite...and whether or not my hairline is receding a bit. Why I get no matches on Tinder?!
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing a gig, dancing with my friends, watching Nordic cop shows.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm wearing odd socks.
You should message me if
Some of this made you laugh and you fancy me in my pictures, fairly obviously.
