My self-summary
My role model is Oor Wullie, but without the tousled hair, dungarees, Scottish accent, catapult, upturned bucket, propensity for mischief, or love-hate relationship with a local policeman.

Friends would probably say that I'm a pleasant and easy-going sort of chap. I try to be nice to everyone, and always say please and thank you. I sometimes accidentally say thank you to the cashpoint machine, which is embarrassing.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in three arty/creativity-based places in Oxford, which keeps life interesting. I get to see films for free!

Much of my spare time is spent writing - mostly screenplays (I even have an agent!), plus the occasional novel. I'm planning on shooting a magical-realism road movie in summer 2017.
I’m really good at
Jumping vertically

Retaining film and music trivia (and therefore doing well at pub quizzes)

Writing stuff, hopefully
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Beatles, and by extension 60s/70s pop-rock generally. I'm a particular fan of The Kinks, The Monkees and They Might Be Giants (who have snuck onto the list somehow).

I guzzle films, especially interesting independent cinema.

Brightly-coloured cocktails, because I'm extremely macho.
The six things I could never do without
Music

My pals (Fat Boab, Wee Eck, Soapy Soutar - see first paragraph)

Some kind of word processor, as my handwriting has really gone downhill

Films

Two other things drawn at random from a hat
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whatever storyline I'm currently working on.

Nostalgia (often in regard to thing 1, but sometimes just in my spare time)

Various social issues. I tend to write my films with female leads, and am planning to have an ethnically diverse cast for my upcoming magical realism film (whitewashing being a regular problem when it comes to fantastical cinema).
On a typical Friday night I am
I like to try and get out and socialise during the week when it's quieter and chatting & finding a seat is easier. I don't have a typical Friday night, though it's Friday at the time of writing and tonight I'm going out to see Eight Days A Week at the cinema. I'm slightly too excited about this.
You should message me if
you think I sound all right.

you're a bit of a lefty feminist. I seem to get on best with feminists.
