My self-summary
Upbeat and charismatic, I love to walk in the mountains, cycle through crowded city streets, and spend time with family and friends. I work in journalism, enjoy my job and love news, unusual people, and stories and information generally.

History and current affairs allure me and I'm more likely to be on holiday in Sarajevo or Ethiopia than the Costa del Sol. In my free time I enjoy travelling, cooking and the finer things in life (i'm a dab hand at summer meatballs) and reading, and am especially interested in Asia, and anywhere with soaring mountains.

I'm looking for someone enchanting and energetic, and who can make me laugh at any time of day.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, reading about the Middle East, training for a half marathon.
I’m really good at
Cycling without getting hit by cars, analysing huge amounts of information and telling funny (but not too rambling) stories.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm confident and different. When I was a teenager someone paid me to have a photo taken with them as I looked like Boris Becker. Now when people shout "Boris" at me on my bike they mean Boris Johnson. You do the math.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Ramones and the Sopranos, which I recently saw in full for the third time - some people tell me that's part of my life I can never get back, but for me it's time spent perfectly. I love all big HBO series, Spike Lee movies, and anything by Graham Greene, Tom Wolfe or Haruki Murakami - anything really about the individual against society. The very best of course is Catcher in the Rye - if you loved it then we're probably going to get along.
Six things I could never do without
The Economist
My sisters
Going on holiday
Sixth to follow...

On a typical Friday night I am
In the pub with friends (surprise!)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

You should message me if
You have a good sense of humour, like the city's restaurants and love the outdoors.
