ABOUT ME: Creative-type but grounded and not flaky. Involved with music, business, volunteer with Literacy Victoria and the Mustard Seed food bank, want to pursue caregiving for mentally challenged folks. Love going to great concerts, theatre, movies, trying out new things, plays and interesting, serious or just popcorn-roller-coaster-ride movies. I'm obsessed with trying new restaurants. I have a slightly twisted/edgy humour, look good for my age (they say), and I try to be considerate and HONEST. Some say too honest at times, but it beats the alternative!

Please msg for more info. I enjoy talking about myself. A LOT. Just kidding.
What I’m doing with my life
Learning, learning, learning, progressing, building my company but trying to do it and still love my work and in the process help other people, not be stressed, be outdoors, active and healthy.
I’m really good at
creativity, problem-solving, music, making a silk purse out of a sow's ear (which would be a pretty gross purse when you think about it), thinking out of the box, smashing and burning the box, feeling bad you lost your temper on the box, spontaneity, making popcorn, juggling, balancing work and play, conversing.
The first things people usually notice about me
Tall? Good smile, funny, my back (if they're behind me).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Fiction, biographies, Kazuo Ishiguru, classics like The Great Gatsby, Catcher in the Rye, A Cure for Everything, music business books (for work), books on the Beatles ("You Never Give me Your Money" and the Coleman Lennon bio).

Movies: interesting and different or just fun and entertaining as long as they aren't brainless, classics, foreign, noir.

Music: R&B ex. Motown, Philly soul, Marvin Gaye, lots of classical music, great pop like the Beatles, Kinks, Stones, new wave era stuff like Police, XTC, Blondie....LOTS OF NEW MUSIC

Food - GREAT restaurants, new flavours constantly, east indian, Ulla in Victoria, Thai, seafood, great pizza but haven't found one in Victoria yet!
Six things I could never do without
Ummmm air, food, music, friends, learning new things, GREAT food, books...that's seven things right?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ducks. I'm not sure why. But just...ducks. No...ummmm the world, learning new things, science, the brain, why one of my cats doesn't like me, how creative minds work, how I can become a super hero someday with a cape maybe, food, finding new and exciting music, finding cat food on sale.
On a typical Friday night I am
Finding cat food on sale. Kidding (ummmm ya...). I have a job I love (music) so it doesn't matter if I'm being social with friends and/or working....I play m,usic, go to concerts, movies theatre
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If you're willing to admit it then is it private?...ooh I hate paradoxes!! Ummmm well I was a nerd in school BEFORE it was cool to be a nerd and I got teased and bullied a bit, until I joined a band and then I suddenly became cool. But I've always retained my nerd status and never really cared.
You should message me if
You see something in the above that piques your interest, like the part about ducks...or being a super hero, or you like witty conversation and doing new things, and are interested in seeing if romance develops, or just exchanging recipes for fish.
The two of us
