My self-summary
Tall, cheerful, creative type. A bit of a writer/artist who sometimes gets published, a keen photographer, an avid bibliophile, a dedicated movie buff, and I have a rewarding day job in the recording industry. Like to keep fit and eat healthily. I used to do a lot of 'adventure' sports (sky-diving, caving, scuba-diving, etc) as well as a lot of travelling. Now I've given up on the former but hope to still occasionally indulge in the latter.

I have an easy-going nature, but I’m passionate about the things (and people) that interest me. My politics are left of centre, I value thoughtfulness and empathy, and family and friends are important to me. I’d really like to find a friend or partner who is honest, enthusiastic and open-minded, with a wry sense of humour - someone who's happy joining me on a bike ride or settling down to watch Game of Thrones or Broad City; bushwalking in the Dandenongs or reading The Age supplements on a lazy Sunday morning; wandering around a flea market or discussing a film over a meal at a quiet restaurant.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to publicise a novella published in the UK a while ago, and sorting through a huge amount of photos taken on a recent trip through the Balkans. Also taking piano lessons and doing some volunteer work.
I’m really good at
Writing (well, compared to the 'average' person - not compared to the authors I know and love). Spelling. Taking photographs. Roller-skating. Bowling. Being tactful. Not being moody. Also, not bad at singing a multitude of TV theme tunes!
The first things people usually notice about me
My height? My smile? The paparazzi that follow my every move?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Can't pin down specific favourite books, but my literary interests are fairly wide-ranging – Humour (Stephen Fry, David Sedaris, Douglas Adams), Sceptical Literature (Carl Sagan, Martin Gardner, James Randi), offbeat investigative journalism (Jon Ronson, Louis Theroux), Filmmaking (Peter Biskind, William Goldman), Travel (Bill Bryson, John Preston), Science-Fiction (Theodore Sturgeon, Ray Bradbury, Kurt Vonnegut), Fantasy (Neil Gaiman, Jonathan Carroll, Clive Barker), Graphic Novels (Fables, Y: The Last Man, the works of Alan Moore ) and books on pop culture generally (TV, Music, Films, the Internet, etc). Plus many of the 'classics' (Great Expectations, Catcher in the Rye, To Kill a Mockingbird, etc).

Fond of lots of music styles, particularly Beatlesque pop (Fountains of Wayne, Ben Folds, Jellyfish), jazz, soul, funk, trip-hop and lounge music. I’ve become particularly fond of female artists – k.d. lang, Sarah McLachlan, Goldfrapp, Bebel Gilberto, etc. My radio dial alternates between PBS and Radio National.

Favourite current TV shows: Fargo, Westworld, Homeland, Ray Donovan, Game of Thrones, Bob's Burgers, Community. Past favourites: Six Feet Under, Breaking Bad, The Office, Extras, Firefly, Venture Bros, Spaced...

My film tastes are often director-driven: Apart from the usual suspects (Coen Bros, Kubrick, Woody Allen, Tarantino, Scorsese, Hitchcock, etc), I'm also a fan of Christopher Nolan, Guillermo del Toro, David Fincher, Darren Aronofsky and Spike Jonze, amongst others.

Favourite food? I'd probably plump for Indian or Italian. Conservative, I know, but there you go...
Six things I could never do without
Family & friends, my books, my computer, my TV, my stereo, and chocolate.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics. Travel. Writing. Women. What's for dinner?
On a typical Friday night I am
Seeing a movie, eating out, chilling out....or stuck in front of my computer trying to meet people on OKCupid!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once had a dream about Leigh Sales...
You should message me if
....any of the above sounds remotely interesting.
