My self-summary
I'm a Mancunian Actor living on a narrowboat. I've been drifting around down south for 18 years, but I'm heading home to be near my people! Community is really important to me - looking forward to meeting new friends and getting involved in what the North has to offer...

Things I like: random adventures, laughing till it hurts, thunder storms, valuing the simple things, chatting all night, a positive outlook, picnics, dancing, finding the wonderful people, sword fighting...

Not necessarily looking for someone with the same interests - always up for trying new things!

What I’m looking for:

Ideally a vegan or vegetarian; my perfect fit; someone who will bring out the best in me; someone open who's looking to grow; someone laid-back but passionate, who would find a wallet in the street and return it (including the cash!); someone who's ready to explore and have some fun!

P.S. I'm going with my gut and only contacting people I think I'm compatible with, so please don't be offended if I don't reply to a message. Oh, and If you 'like' me, I won't know, so send a message!

P.P.S. I'm an animal lover, so if you enjoy fishing, swatting flies, shooting etc, it's probably not gonna work out!
What I’m doing with my life
I spend a lot of time figuring out how my boat works and scrabbling around my engine covered in oil! I also spend a lot of time scrubbing myself clean for auditions!!

Getting into yoga and meditation recently...

I believe we create the life we live, so I always try to focus on the positives and appreciate what I have. I've got a lovely big family up north and lots of great friends, but I'd love to find a partner in crime for big adventures and cosy nights.
I’m really good at
Being enthusiastic about things (can be annoying first thing in the morning - you have been warned!)
The first things people usually notice about me
My mane.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The books I read are mainly plays, research for whatever play I'm doing or psychology stuff.

Some of my favourite films are: The Life of Brian, Withnail and I, Dog Day Afternoon, Amelie, The Hours, Naked (and most Mike Leigh films), Ferris Beuller's Day Off, Buffalo 66, The Goonies, Ma Vie en Rose (Ma, not La - though that was good too!) Fight Club, American Beauty, anything inspiring and hopeful.

Favourite musical artists are Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding, Astrud Gilberto, Sly and The Family Stone, Amy Winehouse, Billie Holiday, Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Jeff Buckley, Marvin Gaye, Nina Simone, The Puppini Sisters...
The six things I could never do without
Exciting possibilites
Community
Love
Laughter
My nest
Nature
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to manifest my perfect life...

Whether I can figure out how to fix whatever's broken on the boat without having to call an engineer out.
On a typical Friday night I am
Cooking for friends; eating and chatting in candlelight on the front deck or out seeing a friend's show?
You should message me if
You find joy in the smallest things. You're more about love than fear.
