My self-summary
I alternate between taking life too seriously and not seriously at all.
What I’m doing with my life
Working in international development. Was in Beirut (hence the name.. and now OkCupid won't let me change it), now in Turkey, and sometimes London. Looking to meet interesting people on the way.
I’m really good at
Procrastinating, making cups of tea, doing foreign accents, dreaming up schemes for the future, travelling around
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm not Turkish.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - The Wind in the Willows, Lolita, Lucky Jim, Decline and Fall, The Adventures of Augie March

Movies - The Machinist, Goodfellas,

Shows - Mad Men, The Sopranos, Peep Show
The six things I could never do without
Sunshine, tennis, tea, the gym, my passport, an underlying sense of self doubt
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whatever happened to my cat Balzac.. Planning my trip going overland from Turkey to Iran and Central Asia. This needs some serious thinking.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out and about in Gaziantep. Living the dream.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm always convinced my plane is going to crash.
You should message me if
You want a UK visa, you're ever in London, Istanbul or Beirut, you want to play tennis, you can guess which famous actor and singer I share a name with.
