My self-summary
I'm an environmental scientist/engineer and hat enthusiast.
Also a climber, gigophile, yogi, naturalist, naturist (definitely one of those two, possibly both), and questionable yodeller.
What I’m doing with my life
Exploring questions about forms of affection, the mechanics of relationships, how to soften without wilting, sex, knowledge and expression.
Trying to figure out whether I'm looking for some sort of relationship or just kinky sex. Essentially, do I want to be tied up or tied down?
I’m really good at
When I'm not geeking out over some way to make engineering artistic, I climb, cycle, practise yoga, draw things and scribble discordant thoughts.

I'm pretty good at becoming fascinated, confused, disturbed and delighted by the world and the people who make it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm strangely good at getting people to be honest, though I have yet to figure out why that seems to happen, it just seems I switch off their filters.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I reckon that if you've got a favourite, you've not tried enough things (that goes for most things, there's a whole throng of analogies there).
Catching my attention in the first pile of books I pick up are: Aldous Huxley, Jonah Lehrer - Proust was a Neuroscientist and EF Schumacher - Small is Beautiful. If I could find one about bio-mimicry and water as well, that'd be a pretty good list.
As for films, this could take a while as well - All that Tarsem Singh has ever touched, Almodovar, Dead Man, V for Vendetta, A Beautiful Mind, Wes Anderson and other stuff that I can't think of.
Next I guess music - I play the sax (though not very well), love electronic and jazz and anything melodic, plus blues, bluegrass, techno, Thelonious Monk, Bill Withers, Willie Nelson, Mark Lanegan, Isobel Campbell, Ellen Allien, Richie Hawtin, Mark Knight, Bo Diddley, Le Peuple de L'Herbe, Bloody Beetroots and Charlie Bird. That's a pretty wide-reaching question.
Can't be bothered with food just now. I cook, I eat, the whole process completely relaxes me. Is that enough?
Six things I could never do without
my notebook, passport, backpack. That's actually it. There's loads of stuff I enjoy having near me, climbing gear, bikes (motor and push), stand up comedy and big groups of mates at a restaurant talking nonsense mercilessly taking the piss out of each other as a bizarre show of affection.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why so many people here seem to think sex is often just physical and that connection is most often sexual. Sex is great but finding it is easy; connection is more rewarding but so much harder to find.

Also, how many people still write letters and to whom my next one should be.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm not sure that there is a typical Friday night. One might involved all the pubs and gigs, the next might involve staying in reading stuff and the one after might be sitting 'round a fire in the middle of a field with a few mates. Hard to tell.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I make notes of the music and films and authors people have written in their profiles.
You should message me if
you like the company of someone who can hold contradicting ideas in their head without forming overly fixed conclusions.

If you want to practice Spanish (hey, dating and language exchange has got to be a good mix right?)

Or else, if you can explain why so many people are convinced that wherefore means where - seriously, this shit keeps me up at night!
