My self-summary
I always hate doing these self summary things, I never really know what to write.

Firstly I am a pretty serious sportsman, meaning I take part in competitive sport and train a lot for it. As a result, this takes up a good part of my life. One of the biggest perks is that I get to travel quite a bit and do a sport I enjoy in some nice surroundings. I also get to meet some of our heroes of the 2012 games on a regular basis.

Secondly I am an engineer and software developer, this is what I mainly do as a day job.

Reading my profile, it may seem like it is archery, archery, archery. However, there is more to me than that. I am also a self described Ray Mears/Bear Grylls (or at least I like to think I am) and know of several ways of starting a fire that doesn't involve the use of match or lighter.

One of the things I would like to achieve is to find that special person to share my life with. I am not too worried if I do or don't find that special person as I am very independent, but having that special person would be the cherry on top.
What I’m doing with my life
Through circumstances that were beyond my control I am now a freelance software/ I.T/ Web developer and consultant.
I’m really good at
I am a natural problem solver, which is just as well as a lot of my work involves having to troubleshoot problems and then write or update manuals for other people to fix the problem in the field.
The first things people usually notice about me
I appear a lot younger than my age suggests. I put this down to the fact that I look after myself and refrain from drinking and smoking.

Also my hair is a pretty noticeable feature. It is lovely, thick and velvety.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
One of my favourite movies has to be the Godfather. I particularly liked the way Al Pacino portraid Michael Corleone.

I have quite an eclectic mix when it comes to music. I have anything from classical to just pure cheese.

I am a bit of a foodie, although I do love curries. I am pretty good at cooking too and love baking things, however some of my baking methods and recipes can seem leftfield: I have thought about baking processes and worked out ways of making it better.
The six things I could never do without
The Python standard library reference (total lifesaver sometimes)
Bow and arrows
GNAS card
Internet
iPhone
Codebook
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Most of the time I think about my Archery and how I am going to reach the goals I want to and what I am going to focus on in my next training session.

I also spend a lot of time thinking about places I like to go. Mostly ends up thinking about trips to Scotland or "Hertfordshire" as Jeremy Clarkson likes to call it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Up to recently my Friday night consisted of archery practice. If you want to get good at something you have to put in the hours.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a bit of a vice for a couple of TV soaps, namely Eastenders, Holby City and Casualty. Although I can go for a couple of weeks with out watching any of them, I do sometimes require my weekly and in the case of Eastenders 4 times weekly fix.
You should message me if
