My self-summary
I'm a cynical optimist, constantly thinking there must be something better than this out there, and a misanthrope who loves the people I have around me. I love my life but constantly doubt it, I love thinking but it is often my downfall. I'm a modernist who craves nostalgia, I'm a rational and a romantic at heart.

In essence, I'm happy but I just don't realise it yet.
What I’m doing with my life
Knee deep running a small business making historical British food with my two best friends and generally trying to cook up interesting concoctions.

Being a serial hobbyist, I'm also sometimes found playing music, putting the world to rights, walking, writing, brewing, foraging, building, adventuring, cheesemaking, making charcuterie, cross-stitching, exploring, wine-making, cycling, drinking, laughing, planning, plotting, reading, musing, learning, wondering and wandering and even, occasionally, doing nothing.

Things, experiences, and lots of them.
I’m really good at
Chasing pipe dreams
The first things people usually notice about me
You'd have to ask 'people'...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Had a sudden burst of reading voraciously and varyingly, from Japanese short stories to The Untold History of The United States to A Confederacy of Dunces to a philosophical discourse on love to the chaos and magic that was the KLF to an amazing book on fermentations. All pretty great in their own way. Yes, fermentations.

Have a habit of reading something and, if it's good, passing it on, so books come and go.

My obsession with music is sometimes bordering on autism but it's easier to say what my headphones are currently churning out Mogwai, Mos Def, Prince, Mum, Chic, Ludovico Einaudi, Low, Terry Callier, Ghostpoet, Gil Scott-Heron, Pantha Du Prince, Can, Ian Dury, The Clash, Chet Baker, Patti Smith, Four Tet, Kraftwerk, King Creosote, Nas, William Onyeabor, Mount Kimbie, Nicholas Jaar, Godspeed, Charlie Parker, Jon Hopkins, blahblahblahblahblah etc etc
Six things I could never do without
Meaningful conversation, adventures, lovingly-made food, idealism, music, good whisky
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The minutiae and massiveness of life.
On a typical Friday night I am
There's no such thing as a typical Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that secrets are overrated...
You should message me if
you're curious and not a cat
The two of us
