My self-summary
I'm a consulting engineer who still has all his own teeth. I dabble in interesting fields, because, well, they're interesting, sheesh. I like coming up with weird concepts and then trying and make them reality.

I enjoy changing things for the better. I'm innovative, intelligent and fairly humble :-D

I am told that I'm outgoing, though I don't personally think so - I'll admit that my self-esteem needs some kicking into gear every now and then. Hey, all of us need encouragement from time.

I ride a motorcycle fast, drive fairly sedately, sail dangerously, and cook like a genius.

Oh, and I love cats. And laughter. And champagne, the sea, the moon, music, the stars, hiking, board games, summer dresses over a woman's curves, the changing seasons, poetry, theatre, wine tasting, sushi, sunrises and sunsets, critical thinking.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently contracting in the Business Improvement space, and also designing the next Big Thing in electronics. Well, hopefully :-)
I’m really good at
Fixing anything!

Cooking - I'm an amateur chef, and love inventing new dishes. My favourite food types are Indian, Thai, Japanese, Mexican, French.

Listening.

Spotting pseudoscience and putting it out of it's misery with cold, hard fact.

The six things I could never do without
My motorcycle, my Kindle, the sea, my iPod, my cats and my notebook.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to do something differently - I'm always trying to invent a better mousetrap. This applies to various things, be it relationships, technology, self-improvement.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually recovering from the week somehow. Beach walk, theatre, light supper in an open air restaurant.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've never had anybody to judge myself by, so sometimes my self-esteem needs bolstering.
You should message me if
...you want light-hearted intelligent company.
