My self-summary
Let's hit the road and see what it throws up at us...
What I’m doing with my life
working as a consultant in the field of environmental management, planning my next vacation...
I’m really good at
I like the conviviality of catching up with friends for dinner/drinks, so I'm usually the "social secretary" within various circles of friends organizing "dumplings nights", pub trivia, bike rides (including wine-tastings if possible), going to shows (gigs/movies/galleries)
The first things people usually notice about me
probably the foot that is being extracted from my mouth after I've made another gaff or perhaps the twinkle in my eye...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite music at the moment is indie, soul, pop... recently on the stereo have been Sonic Youth, DJ Shadow, Stereolab, Neil Young, Love, Yo La Tengo, Isaac Hayes, Detroit Cobras, Killers, Black Cab, Belle & Seb, Black Angels, Black Mountain, Besnard Lakes, Bright Black Morning Light, Spiritualized/Spaceman 3/Spectrum, J&MC, the Raveonettes, White Stripes, Fuck Buttons, Rolling Stones (late 60s/early 70s), Beatles, Neutral Milk Hotel, Essex Green, Gainsbourg (Serge and Charlotte), Air, Daft Punk, Faust, Can, Neu, Go-Betweens, Saints, Triffids, Underground Lovers, Nick Cave, Dirt Bombs, Rocket From the Crypt, Velvets, Galaxy 500...

My favorite books; I've always got a couple on the bedside table but finding the time to read them... I've always had a thing for crime fiction - Elmore Leonard, Raymond Chandler, etc. Other favs include "the Russians" (Gogol, Pushkin, et al.), Joseph Heller, Tim Winton, Peter Carey, Joseph Conrad, Kafka, Ursula K Leguin.

My favorite movies and TV; Always a sucker for musical biopics, so 24 hr Party People, Some Kind of Monster, Dig, etc. Others that spring to mind include Lost in Translation; House of Sand & Fog; Lantana; Mystic River; The Good, Bad & Ugly; Donny Darko; plus plenty of others. Good TV - QI, The Trip, The Office, Grand Designs, Shameless

Food; love going out to nice restaurants/bars for dinner or coffee. Some of my usual haunts are Hu-tong, China Red (love that touch-screening ordering system), Movida, Bar Lourinha, Cabinet, Robbie Burns Hotel, Napier Hotel and Mario's (amongst many others). or for coffee, Padre, St Ali, Seven Seeds, etc. Always keen to try new tastes!
Six things I could never do without
friends and family
fresh air
the hot sun
the warm sea
good music
my bike
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The wide open road.

and where it may take me and what I might find along the way. Geocaching.
On a typical Friday night I am
Chilled to the bone. Hot wired heat all the way home.

or (most likely) relaxing with friends at theirs or a bar in town.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I followed her into the black lands, where the window frames peel and flake...

and I that have a penchant for quoting lines from songs
You should message me if
go on....
The two of us
