My self-summary
English guy currently living between three Manhattan parks.
I still find NYC beautifully frustrating.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm just back from several months in India, which was quite amazing. I've kind of turned my hand to a number of things, but professionally I'm an architect, also now a writer. I've travelled and lived in a number of places, the most recent being Hong Kong.
I’m really good at
Providing friends with their own life theories. It can get annoying.
The first things people usually notice about me
For NYC I would say my accent. But maybe my smile, which I tend to do a lot. Superficially, my salt and pepper hair, and maybe my youthful appearance - possibly the fact that I have portrait of me aging in a London loft.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Way too many. Ask me. I mostly read non-fiction these days. Though I have been into writers like Borges, Huysmans, Hesse, Canetti, and such like. Still have the hots for Tolkien and have read all my Harry Potters. Love movies, again too many to name. Theater, opera, jazz, early music, classical, some Broadway recently (much to my surprise).
The six things I could never do without
Laughing, regularly
An enquiring mind and the fuel to stoke it
Sour dough bread (if I can get it)
Inspiring people, ordinary people, close friends
All kinds of music, but without the electronics
Walking, and plenty of it
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How terrifying the world might be, come November.
UPDATE (11/09/16):
Yup, thought so.
On a typical Friday night I am
Never a typical Friday ... I go out when possible, or may have work to finish. Sometimes the weekends blur with the weekdays. If I'm with someone, all that matters is that I am with that person - we can do anything.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can whistle and hum and the same time.

- Not decent, but feel pressured to reply
- Not pressured, but find you have nothing better to do
