My self-summary
Bookish, musical, hopefully quite funny guy from England, living and working in Tokyo.

I'm really passionate and opinionated about so many things... music, film, literature; always trying new bars and restaurants; often visiting museums or galleries or festivals. I run or work out 6 days a week. And, of course, I love to travel.

There aren't many okstupid users around Tokyo but I'll keep this open just in case. I speak a bit of Japanese, but not really conversational (yet!)
What I’m doing with my life
I work in curriculum development - writing/editing published textbooks for a language company. Plus I teach occasional guitar and bass lessons.
I’m really good at
Cooking Thai green curry, giving massages, and slipping unnecessarily obscure words into a conversation.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Seriously into music. Everything from alternative rock and post punk, to electronic and ambient, from jazz to hip hop, classical to world.

I read a lot. As much as the feel of a real book is preferable, I love my Kindle when in Japan or travelling. Fiction, philosophy, history, science, sociology, travel guides; lots and lots.

Films: Don't know where to start, again, but The Graduate and Lost in Translation are two of personal significance.
The six things I could never do without
Tea, wine, Asian food, gym, guitar, internet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Love, sex, food, drink. The big four.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a bar or event somewhere in Tokyo
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Dare you to ask me anything! Go on!
You should message me if
.. you're interested/ing.
If you're travelling around Tokyo I supposed I could be quite a good guide.
