My self-summary
Superficially phlegmatic and essentially pragmatic guy who enjoys live music, socialising, traditional dancing, cricket, jazz and seeking the most favourable effort / reward ratio (i.e. lazy)
What I’m doing with my life
Studying for a MSc to give me the skills and qualifications for future career progression, making sure theatrical productions (musicals and plays) work as intended and not doing such a good job at learning the accordion
I’m really good at
Something of a jack of all trades, master of none, both personally and professionally. Not saying a lot for ages before talking too much nonsense before eventually saying something interesting once you get to know me.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm not Mexican although pharmacists in Doha always think I'm Egyptian.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Into many styles and artists, ranging from well-crafted three minute pop songs, jazz (perhaps my favourite), indie, rock and traditional Scottish dance music

Film: Any with a dark spin, gripping storylines (preferably more than one) and last minute twists. Wasn't a big fan of spontaneous synchronised street-based dance routines by a multitude of brightly dressed strangers until I started working on them

Books: What ever three-for-the-price-of-two deal I can get at the airport which tickles my fancy, which usually sit on the shelf for a couple of years before I get around to reading them. Sometimes I rattle through several of them in quick succession before being distracted by some other activity, with the cycle starting all over again. Faffs around with a Kindle with the same outcome

Food: Pretty much everything. Guilty pleasure? Chips. Does that count as vegetarian?
Six things I could never do without
Friends and family, music, imagination, desire, humility and my house keys
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Sorry I was miles away, what was the question again?
On a typical Friday night I am
Either studying or out with friends (seeing as I don't have to work on Saturdays any more - yay!)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Aha! You'll have to find that one out for yourself ;-)
You should message me if
You like the cut of my jib and are willing to take a punt.
The two of us
