My self-summary
Sometimes short and sweet profiles work the best. I mean Japanese Haiku are only 17 syllables (or is that words – I can never remember?) and there are pinnacles of brevity and simplicity. Or I assume they are, but as they are written in Japanese I am not really sure. Come to think of it, they may not be profound works of beauty and simplicity, they may just be shopping lists. Well at least they are definitely short.

A polymath and poly mathematician* looking for interesting and interested women.

25 syllables. Not a haiku but I think that will work as a profile.

*(well a nurse and social entrepreneur as well as mathematician if we are being strict about it, but that would mess up the syllable count).
What I’m doing with my life
I love trying to suck the marrow out of life and leading a full rich existence. We may not be able to taste everything the world has to offer before we die but that doesn't stop me trying.

In my career, I am a nurse and I also run a number of social enterprises. I want to make the world a better place and have found a way of doing that, having a lot of fun at the same time and making a living out of it.
I’m really good at
helping people discover what they really want to do in life and achieveing it. I also love making people laugh, making people smile and swedish apple cider.
The first things people usually notice about me
depends very much on what I am doing when they first see me.

If I am on stage, it is likely to be me showing enormous pictures of kittens and getting the audience to do strange things in unison.
If I am in a pub, it could be my smile or my back depending on which direction they are approaching me from.
If I am in a park, it will almost certainly be my two dogs begging them for food or tummy tickles.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favourite book is Illusions by Richard Bach. Others I really like are the Millennium Trilogy, the Hunger Games, most Isaac Asimov, the Harry Potter series, Jonathan Livingston Seagull, positive psychology books (especially Martin Seligman and Mihály Csíkszentmihályi), most self-help books (especially Stephen Covey, Anthony Robbins, Timothy Ferris, David Allen, etc) and poetry by Wilfred Owen, Roger McGough and Brian Patten. I also really like graphic novels and my favourites include V for Vendetta, Dark Knight Returns, Daredevil Born Again, Batman Year One, Preacher, Sandman, Y - the last man, The Walking Dead, Watchmen, Lost Girls, Kick-Ass, Scott Pilgrim, I Kill Giants, Moonshadow. I once spent an hour talking on the train with Alan Moore which was a really amazing experience.

My favourite film is Field of Dreams. Others i really like are Excalibur, Casablanca, Planet of the Apes, Rocky 2, Love Actually, Some Kind of Wonderful, Alien, Blade Runner, The Guard, Life of Brian, Die Hard, Gladiator, Brief Encounter, Jesus Christ Superstar, Enter the Dragon, The Dark Knight,

My favourite stage show is Jesus Christ Superstar although I have a soft spot for Evita, Les Miserables, Chess and Rocky Horror.

My favourite TV show and my favourite music are both far too difficult to narrow down to a single choice. The answer can vary hour by hour and will certainly be determined by my mood at the time. Amongst my favourite TV shows are Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Babylon 5, Doctor Who, Lost, Burn Notice, The Daily Show, The Mentalist, Merlin, Sherlock, Misfits, Peep Show, The Inbetweeners, Blackadder and Callan. Amongst my favourite musicians are Damien Rice, All About Eve, Leonard Cohen, Adele, Dean Friedman, Alan Parsons Project, The Beatles, Duran Duran, The Human League, Neil Diamond, Dolly Parton, James Blunt, Pulp, Amy MacDonald, Crystal Gayle, Billy Joel, The Sisters of Mercy, Don McClean and the Cruxshadows.

As you can see, I take eclecticism to its very limits.

I also have a guilty addiction to xkcd, 27b/6, Questionable Content, The Daily Mash and the Guild :)

My favourite food depends on the company, the weather and the accompanying wine.
Six things I could never do without
1) My family
2) My dogs
3) My sense of optimism
4) My sense of humour
5) My refusal to do what I am told
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what makes people happy, how the mind works, how people can be more successful, relationships, polyamory, how the world can be a better and fairer place, why they cancelled Firefly and whether they will ever bring back Puffa Puffa Rice.
polyamorous polyamory
On a typical Friday night I am
closer to Saturday morning than I am to Thursday evening.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think the makers of the test may have misunderstood the concept of privacy :-)
You should message me if
you are polyamorous or ethically non-monogamous and want to get in touch. If you don't want to get in touch then don't message me and if you really want to avoid any possibility of us ever getting in touch, emigrate to Borneo.
The two of us
