My self-summary
I may have painted myself into a corner with the username, I will now be using this profile to try to paint over the 2D personality the name suggests and help convey that I may have more depth to me than characters in Michael Bay films (that reference may not have helped).

I love living in London and am in a job involving working with films, which I really enjoy. I'm always looking for more stuff to do (which in London is not hard) and I keep I enjoy adding to my pile of books and films which despite my reading and watching never seems to get any smaller.
I would like to discover more of London and meet someone who knows cool places or wants to find cool places too.

As part of my degree I spent a year studying in the USA, which was really fun and had a big impact on me. A year of my course was also spent interning at the company I now work for.
What I’m doing with my life
Outside of work I enjoy:
- going to comedy gigs (although need to go to more this year)
- watching the odd bit of sport on TV (Football, Rugby, Cricket)
- watching, reading, eating the things described in one of the boxes below
- discovering new places in London (and the world)
