My self-summary
I'm not fond of starting sentences with I, it makes me feel self absorbed which isn't true.

I'm looking to re-start my social life! The last few years have been too work orientated and now I'm missing out on fun things.
What I’m doing with my life
I have very luckily found myself doing a job I enjoy, so be warned I might talk about it too much, helping people make satellites and planes do their jobs! Lots of travel helping people solve their problems and getting awesome things done; rewarding but the early starts are killer!

When I finally come down to earth, I find much frustration and enjoyment, although in which proportions I am unsure, playing a mixture of jazz, classical and pop piano. Sometimes I am found painting and at others, although depressingly rarely, photographing my urban landscape.
I’m really good at
Playing the piano, but nowhere near as good as I want to be, although I now have a piano (woo!) so this is getting better. I can mix (dj) trance, although I don't have my decks with me either (oh despair!). Music is something very important to me and I'm lucky to have spent so long enveloped in it.

My other less useful talent is memorising lots of dubiously useful information. If you've ever wanted to know how something works or why things are I can surprise!
The first things people usually notice about me
If I have my hair down, it's probably that! None of my photos do it justice as it's now half way down my back. This is not always obvious as it's usually tied up and under a hat.

I dont know what my first impression is actually like, suggestions welcome.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Solanin - It's a manga by Inio Asano and it's very, very good. Not at all typical manga, just a single book, but an interesting storyline with relatable characters. Highly recommended!
Yoko Kanno - Possibly the greatist soundtrack composer of my time, up there with John Williams and Danny Elfman. She's produced a massive range of musical styles all to a incredible level.
House - Who can resist the dry wit and sarcasam of Hugh Laurie, say no more!
5cm/s - A film (actually a set of 3 short stories) by Makoto Shinkai, about trains and their affect on one person. I don't actually recommend this film as most find it incredibly boring, but for someone who's lived their life on the trains I adore it. Beautiful art and soundtrack. Makoto's other works are also worth watching, the film preceeding this is easier to watch!
Ted Hughes - Crow in particular, which I have been semi-infatuated with for a long time, but I have enjoyed and suffered his other work too.
KOKIA - Possibly the best singer alive, well she's very good. Although I dont like much of her work as it spans a large range of styles, she is an amazing singer. Single Mother single is very good, although it is a christmas single so not that relevent now.
Ayaka - Great jazz singer, wonderful voice and fantastic band. Sang the credits music for Sky Crawlers which is a fantastic film with stunning visuals and Kenji Kawai score. If you know any other jazz musicians like Ayaka, or Kawai's jazz tracks I'd love to hear!
The six things I could never do without
Music
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a huge nerd/geek (if you haddn't guessed by now) but I'm surprisingly good at hiding it and not constantly talking about nerdy things!

I am also a half decent makup artist.
