My self-summary
Well-adjusted human being who would quite like to have a dog.

Other things I quite like include long walks in all environments, that board game café in Haggerston, befriending animals, brunch, coming across really good design or architecture, scrambling, cooking for people, having my wits tested, and seeing happy children or good things in general.

This probably makes me sound unbearably wholesome. That's... not entirely true. In fact, not really at all.

Nevertheless. Smart, ambitious, kind - looking for similar.
What I’m doing with my life
Working in marketing, chasing culture, thinking about the world and drinking good coffee.

Trying to get out more.
I’m really good at
Solving problems. I get paid to think, which is a lot of fun. Otherwise - cooking, planning stuff, excel (no you shut up), putting words into pleasing arrangements, lists, l'esprit d'escalier, applied chicanery, relative pitch, colours and design in general.

Not exactly gifted at small talk and actually allergic to banter.
The first things people usually notice about me
Higher res in real life. Somewhere on the stubble-beard spectrum. Tries to dress well. Flippantly serious. INTJ if you're into that sort of thing. Nice to most people and all animals (except spiders). Occasionally excoriating.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Reading feels to me like the surest path to the soul, but music the quickest.

Dr. Dog, Vampire Weekend, Elbow, Feist, Joanna Newsom, UNKLE, Grizzly Bear, Beirut, Nick Cave, Beth Orton, Neutral Milk Hotel, Janelle Monae, Portishead, The Mountain Goats, Aesop Rock, Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, Camille, St. Vincent, Iron & Wine, Laura Marling, Lianne la Havas, Jurassic 5, Beck, Steely Dan, the Beatles, Air, the Beach Boys, Jose Gonzalez, the Decemberists, Little Joy, Nick Drake, King Biscuit Time, Passion Pit, Everything Everything, Alt-J, Findlay, The Staves, Justice, Devendra Banhart, Cake, Gorillaz, Courtney Barrett, The Japan Ground Self-Defense Force Central Band.

I like classical and modern orchestra but prefer individual works over oeuvres. The pretentious version of liking singles more than albums, I suppose.

Books: Tend toward modernism and postmodernism. Poststructuralism is fun to think about.

TV: I know there's lots of great TV but I don't watch it. I get fidgety. I am open to being converted on this.
Six things I could never do without
- Springtime
- Alt tab
- Double bed
- Hot pasta
- The nagging compulsion to do better
- Spurious portmanteaus
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Particularly gender, biz, tech, politics, art and economics. Loosely speaking, I'm left and feminist. Enjoy discussing ideas; not one for ideologues.

Data nerd.
On a typical Friday night I am
Whisky, wine, cider.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm intermittently attracted to men, and I'm fine with that.
You should message me if
You're tired of choosing between mediocre white guys, self-parodying nerds, sociopath MRAs and drippy postgraduates.

You're fearless, talkative, doing something interesting, smarter than me and/or understand the correct use of the Oxford Comma.
The two of us
