My self-summary
Born and raised in England, though with strong American connections on my mother's side, I have lived in New York for over ten years. I came here as a graduate student in English literature, and stayed. I love literature, art and music of all kinds (I have a long history with rock & roll but am beginning to explore classical and jazz). I love New York, and all the things that city life brings--the chance connections, the sense that there are whole universes hidden in each block, the anonymity and yet the opportunities for community. I am fairly well traveled, in Europe--particularly Italy and France--and along the Eastern Seaboard of the United States. I suppose I am a kind of hybrid of European and American influences. I can be given to introspection at times, but also have a very active sense of humour and love conversation and conviviality.
What I’m doing with my life
For most of my years in New York, I have resided in the noble borough of Brooklyn, and more to the point the intolerably smug/gorgeous neighborhood of Park Slope. Well, more on the Slope/Windsor Terrace border. Once upon a time I was a PhD student, apparently set on life in academia, now I work at an online media company in midtown. I may often be found at the bars and restaurants of Brooklyn in search of answers to the mysteries of life. I've been studying French at the Alliance Francaise for the past year. I've been going to the movies a lot--particularly revival series at BAM and the Film Forum. I also like to see live music.
I’m really good at
I'm told I'm a good listener, and can be a supportive and encouraging friend, and some have even thought I give good advice. I'm also a good conversationalist.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, the accent, of course. And that famous English reserve.
As well as my boyish good looks...
Six things I could never do without
My iPhone
A book to read(particularly during the daily commute), usually fiction. I get twitchy after a while if I don't have something to read.
Music, usually some variant of rock--from post-punk all the way back to psychedelica but also classic R&B, particularly Southern Soul, electronic music, reggae and jazz (beginner).
A notebook to scribble in.
Doc Martens.
Irish Whiskey.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The way the world works.

The way the world should work.



On a typical Friday night I am
Perhaps I am having a quiet drink in Brooklyn, or watching a film from the Seventies on Netflix, or making my way through one of the great TV shows of our age, or walking the High Line after work...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am strongly attracted to highly intelligent, slightly aggressive women with the gift of the gab.
