My self-summary
Hi, my real names Richard. I've always lived in Birmingham and I'm a real hands on kind of guy. If I can get stuck in, I go right for that instead of thinking too hard about other options. That tendency has caused me more trouble than it's solved in the past, but there's nothing like making some mistakes to learn from.
What I’m doing with my life
Progressing with my career in hospitality. After a fairly horrible accident in 2013 I had to start my life over from scratch and in the spring of 2015 I got really lucky and landed on a basic training course at one of the best colleges for hospitality in europe, and very quickly was put onto the more advanced level 2 course. A year later I'd finished the level 3 course. The entire time I was doing that for five days a week I was also holding down a job at a fairly prestigious hotel to keep the roof over my head. My career there had, so far, progressed from being a zero hour contract food runner to a full time contract barman.
I’m really good at
Practical skills
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm told my voice is quite distinctive
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Almost anything by Terry Pratchett or Dan Abnett.

I'm pretty happy to sit down and watch most types of movies. Personal preference when it's just me watching goes to more main-stream stuff like Aliens, Die Hard, American Pie, or if I'm feeling like watching something a little more weird movies like Garden State or Almost Famous.

Shows wise, I'm a big community fan, orange is the new black is great, sons of anarchy is awesome, as is game of thrones and if it's got something akin to a superhero I'm usually all over it (Buffy, Arrow, The Flash).

There's very very few genres of music I dislike, but my favourite has always and I expect will always be Heavy Metal and Rock.

Anything I've cooked, and feel I've actually surpassed my expectations on is usually my instant favorite food. Recently that's been curries, stews and a really really unhealthy burger with way too much bacon and cheese in it. Also stir-frys rock
Six things I could never do without
My capability of just going with it
My suzuki
My friends, without whome I wouldn't have done half the dumb stuff I've enjoyed
Music festivals, without which my summers would have be mighty dull
I spend a lot of time thinking about
When's the next music gig, why don't more people ride motorbikes and how strange it is that life seems to actually be proceeding to plan
On a typical Friday night I am
Working until the early hours. Bar staff don't tend to get weekends off
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I'm proudly an oddball. Not a lot of metal heads that really like folk music and genuinely enjoy very pink cocktails
You should message me if
You want to, I guess.
The two of us
