My self-summary
British expat finally in possession of that elusive green card! Though I've kept the accent together with a general aversion toward American sports but I'm willing to be persuaded otherwise. Travel and soccer are my favorite hobbies and if I don't make it to Brazil this summer I'll be biking, hiking and enjoying fine craft beer in the CA sunshine. Looking for a relaxed girl with a great sense of humor and adventure to enjoy fun dates and more. Oh, and my teeth are great according to my dentist :-)
What I’m doing with my life
Working for an online travel company connecting customers to the coolest travel experiences available in North America: from helicopter rides over Manhattan to meeting a Yankees legend and blending your own wine in Napa. My work takes me out of SF very regularly and I must be the only Bay Area resident who doesn't mind (in fact likes!) United.

I'm a soccer nut who plays in a co-ed league and rolls out of bed at 7am on the weekend to watch EPL matches. My team is doing pretty well this season - for once - but after supporting them for 25 years I've learned not to be optimistic :-(
I’m really good at
Leaving everything to the last minute! I consider it a personal failure if my checked bags are not labelled LATE and the gate agent doesn't know my name as I stroll up
The first things people usually notice about me
My John Lennon-esque British accent, curly hair and jazzy socks (my trademark)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: I am trying to bolster my viewing vocabulary and am working my way through classic westerns.

Books: hmm not a strength. Even when on a beach holiday I find an excuse not to read, like joining in with a game of water polo or heading to the bar. Must do better! When I do force myself to sit down and read, I really enjoy Bill Bryson.

Favorite TV show? The Inbetweeners: a cheeky British comedy show about the adolescent years. Check it out and let me know if you need assistance with translation as there are some strange terms in there!

I'm not so adventurous with music but I like to play around with Spotify most days.

San Francisco has fantastic food, so I'm in the right city! I enjoy spicy food (see below) and have enjoyed sampling all sorts of delicious ethnic food since arriving here. Burmese is my favourite so far.
Six things I could never do without
- iPhone
- My passport: I have some odd stamps in there that excite Homeland Security..not in a good way
- Morning coffee: such a pleasure in the US, service with a smile. Even if latte drinkers hold me up in the queue.
- My family: rowdy, high maintenance but fantastic company
- Beer - I'm my father's son :-)
- Having at least one vacation planned
I spend a lot of time thinking about
where I'll travel to next
On a typical Friday night I am
eating a curry! I love spicy food and I'm lucky that San Francisco is blessed with a multitude of great Indian, Thai and Szechaun restaurants. It would be accompanied by a crisp, cold beer to ease me into the weekend...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I recently got pulled over for going 28mph over the speed limit :-(
You should message me if

- you can take the heat with spicy food
