My self-summary
Geek who likes adventure. Former musician turned professional strategist. International type.
What I’m doing with my life
Working for an international healthcare and getting the band back together. Just returned to life in London after two years in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
I’m really good at
Ahh, not much
The first things people usually notice about me
My mysterious masculine intensity (unless my trousers are on fire).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Two favourite authors are Mervyn Peake and John Fowles. Often reading history.

Finding movies a little hard to take seriously at the moment as the actors keep trying to sell me perfume and mobile broadband.

Music - broad tastes but very fussy. If I had to choose one I'd say Soul Funk, but I'd miss Afrobeat the most.

Food - where can I begin. An enduring carnal love affair that just keeps on giving. Words fail me. But I think food already knows just how much it means to me.
The six things I could never do without
Best mates and my bro
Good music and my bass guitar
A lot of food (otherwise I die)
Seasons and the outdoors
Brain fodder
Bed
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What makes political institutions succeed or fail
History - recent, medieval, prehistoric
Health systems
Nature vs Nurture
Bass lines
Random stuff that makes me chortle
Going to obscure places like Svalbard
What's for dinner
On a typical Friday night I am
Delighted it's the weekend
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The dorky stuff I think about (see above...)
You should message me if
You might be up for a drink.
