My self-summary
Little apprehensive, but come what may...

Interests - Sports, Music, Reading, Travelling, Photography, Film yade' yade' yada.

Reckon I'm allowed to be positive at this junctour so here goes! With a little work and on a good day (Note good day!) I can tick the tall, dark and handsome box!

I'm a decent guy to be around and have always tried to put family and mates before myself. Rightly or wrongly my job too, and so I find myself here... I've bounced around a bit in the last 5 years or so via the ex-pat bubbles of Singapore and New York but happy to have settled back into London life.

My nan always said to me you can't fail to impress the women so long as you wear a smart pair of shoes, if only it were that easy!
What I’m doing with my life
Professional Tennis Coach
I’m really good at
Getting parking fines. Losing keys and wallets. Sleeping standing up. Generally being the nice guy that finishes last, sometimes second to last...
The first things people usually notice about me
Up close, horribly ignorrant people tend to mention grey hairs! Striving for the Clooney look by 35!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Shadow of the Wind, Catcher in the Rye, Picture of Dorian Gray, All the Pretty Horses, Lord of the Flies, Never Let me Go, Captain Corelli's Mandolin, Notes on a Scandal, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Friday Night Lights ... And the rest!

Movies - Goodfellas, LA Confidential, Amelie, Lost in Translation, The Apartment, Big Lebowski, Trueman Show, Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid. TV Shows - Californication, Entourage, 24, West Wing, Fawlty Towers, Luther, Mad about You, Seinfeld, Cheers

Food - All kinds, nature of the job means I constantly snack though. Big fan of the Italian and Spanish approach of eating and drinking. Spent a long time in SE Asia so partial to a nice spicy dish. Can't go wrong with a good old pub roast, fish & chips or a home-cooked. My mum is Swedish so it brings something else to the table, literally.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
•How many smiley faces are acceptable in one text message?

•Work (Sad I know, I try not to bring it home though)

•10'000 hours of quality practise.

•What Bill Murrey said to Scarlett Johanson at the end of 'Lost in Translation.'

•Time off and what to do with it or wether to do anything at all!

•Friends in far away places...
On a typical Friday night I am
Picking up tennis balls!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Apparently being a tennis coach gives you a free pass and instant access to bored housewives, this is not the case! That said, I won't lie it has crossed my mind, and I know one or two people that have taken full advantage! Maybe if I'd used my position a little more wisely I could be talking about the 2000 woman I've slept with! This again is sadly not the case!
You should message me if
You've gone to the trouble of reading all this nonsense then why not fire off a few words :0)
