I'm Aaron. Hella dreamy. Analytic. Creative. Empathetic. Aware. Appreciative. SMART. Convicted enough to use adjectives like this about myself.
Not a huge fan of The Gay Scene (not here in Oz, anyway) because ultimately I think it normalises some really damaged behaviours that are essentially just responses to rejection, and I find that really dull. Transcend, people - or at least TRY to, you know? Sheesh. I'm not perfect - at all - but I try to evolve, and to be good to myself, and (somewhat importantly in this context) to others.
This means I work between two campuses, Newcastle and Sydney. But you'll also find me around the big ol' word of ours. I go to America a couple of times per year, and work a lot in Asia.
I'm also very active in creative projects outside of my main work. At the end of the day, I'm a writer. I also make music and DJ. And I've been lucky enough to be able to do all these professionally; but neither are they confined to my career. And while I have a pretty good job, I clash with people who hang their entire self worth upon their business card. I know a lot of successful people who are really quite painful, and I know a lot of waiters who are beautiful souls.
Film... David Lynch is God. Other films I like... Best In Show, Basic Instinct, Donnie Darko, Dogville, Shame, Rocky Horror, the list goes on...
Books... I tend to read non-fiction. Though I recently put JK Rowling's "A Casual Vacancy" on my kindle and, much to my surprise, really loved it. I also have a long history with Sartre (although I haven't read him for years now), and I guess he was somewhere still in my subconscious when I tried to find an OK Cupid name nobody had used yet.
Food... I love anything Mexican (my favourite restaurant in the world is Mole in Chelsea... so good), a gourmet pizza, a German schnitzel drowning in cream, and espresso martinis. In no particular order.
