I Love running long distances, cycling and just keeping in shape. I enjoy the outdoors quite a bit and hike as much as I can, mostly day things with the odd long weekend away thrown in for good measure (Snowdonia, Lake District...).
I'm fond of pubs with personality, my motorcycle, log fires and craft beers, more so if in the company of friends, oh and I'm always reading something. I care about my career but I don't let it get the best of me and always try to make time for the important people in my life.
I'm close to my family, therefore visits to Spain are somewhat regular but I'm solidly settled in London, I'd like to think I've got a rough idea of where I'm headed to both at work and in life.
Respect, loyalty and honesty are qualities that define me and that I look for in a partner. Sarcasm and irony are my weapons of choice when it comes to humour - think Bill Hicks and Jim Jefferies - so if you work in marketing or advertising ... ;-) .
I've travelled a fair bit (11 countries and counting) but there are still many corners, side roads and far flung places to be explored, it'd be nice to find a companion to share all those experiences with, a friend, lover and confidant. I could say more but that would strip all the mystery, right?

Food: Spanish, Italian, Indian, Japanese... the list goes on and on.
Being out on a sunny day, sunshine is such a rare commodity in London that I almost feel guilty not to seize it when shows up.
The sense of freedom I get when riding my motorcycle up a mountain pass, not to mention the huge grin on my face after accelerating out of a hairpin, it's the closest thing to feeling like a kid again, yay
Breakfast, I have more in common with zombies than with humans until I've had something to eat and coffee.
My smartphone, it's like a second appendage, so freaking useful it makes you wonder how you lived without it, even though we did!
Pictures, of the friends and family I left in Spain and the new ones I've made in London.
You want to teach me how to inline-skate . Learning on my own is cool but don't think my bum can take many more hits.
Now that Spring is getting closer you'd like to have a nice meal and some drinks at the Founder's Arms in the Southbank, or you know of another great pub to have a good time in the sunshine.
