My self-summary
I'm a chilled-out, slightly quirky guy who prefers mountains to the beach, lazy Sunday mornings to rowdy Saturday nights, a good book to trash TV, coffee and a slice of cake to vodka red bull, and adventures to hangovers.
What I’m doing with my life
Working 9 to 5 in a mostly enjoyable but often not very interesting office job as a data analyst, procrastinating about decorating my house, daydreaming, chilling out with my incredibly lazy greyhound and probably drinking more coffee than is really good for me.
I’m really good at
Measuring my bike rides by the number of cake shops and country pubs visited.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told that I have really nice eyes, so hopefully it's sometimes that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I think my favourite book might always be The Little Prince. Yes, it's a kid's book, but it's such a wonderful little slice of escapism and it's also a nice reminder to cling onto a little childhood naiveté and not to take life too seriously.

Sometimes I suspect I'm the only person left in the world who hasn't watched Breaking Bad. Other than that, I tend to watch the same box-set series as everyone else and at some point I'll eventually finish the 50-odd disc box of The X-Files I bought last year.

A friend of mine genuinely has a list of supposedly "classic" movies he is gobsmacked that I haven't seen. The list currently includes Groundhog Day and The Breakfast Club. On the other hand, I could quite happily watch Ferris Bueller's Day Off every day until I die.

I probably listen to the radio more than to CDs, and there's usually a radio switched on in my living room when I'm at home. There are few things more annoying than the terrible adverts on local commercial radio, so I tend to listen to a mix of Radio 4 and Radio 6 Music.
The six things I could never do without
A good bicycle and somewhere beautiful to ride it, my Kindle and something engrossing to curl up and read, a damn fine cup of coffee (TM Dale Cooper), and a long, hot bath at the end of the day.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Lately I've been mostly thinking about plans for the summer. I definitely want to plan a couple of trips to Snowdonia, and maybe a weekend or two camping in Cornwall or the Lake District.
On a typical Friday night I am
A few times a year I hook up with a fantastic cycling club who meet at midnight in the middle of London on a Friday night and ride down to the seaside for breakfast.

Sometimes it's cold and wet, sometimes it's warm and easy, sometimes it's almost a party on wheels and very occasionally it's a little bit of suffering. But the feeling of watching the sun come up while you pedal through the countryside chatting to some new friends is just indescribable.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The first single - on cassette, no less - I ever bought myself was, I think, Cotton Eye Joe.

Child of the nineties, or what?

(Admittedly that's not so much "private" as "should never be spoken of again". My tastes are somewhat better now!)
You should message me if
...if you know an amazing countryside cafe with fantastic cakes or a long country walk with a great pub at the end.
