My self-summary
An endlessly curious and open-minded chap who used to run his own business, before selling up and turning to other things. I've got a ton of passions, cultural, culinary and sporting. On the other hand, soap operas, reality TV and trashy novels are a personal hell - though bad food is probably worse!

Very good in a crisis, but rather more prone to trying to avoid such dramas. Generally optimistic, friendly and up for talking about pretty much anything - and listening to pretty much anything too.
What I’m doing with my life
Generally too much! Getting back to full climbing fitness just now after the winter lull, but also working my way through my cookery books and recipes I meant to try out but never quite got the time.
I’m really good at
Cooking, conversation and staying calm in a crisis. Then finding the funny side of it afterwards!
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile and my enthusiasm - I'm a bit perplexed by this myself, but it's what I get told most of the time!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: anything by Jeanette Winterson, though I'm catching up with Mario Vargas Llosa at the moment!

Music: still a sucker for some classic U2, but more recently Arcade Fire and Lisa Hannigan.

Food: Moroccan tagines, fresh pasta and thai curries. Frankly, though, my best meals have been grilled lobster on beautiful beaches.
Six things I could never do without
Good cookery books.
Good food.
Good books of other types.
My climbing gear.
My music collection.
