My self-summary
Well I asked my friends how they'd describe me, and I was told for the right amount of money they'd say whatever I wanted; not much use here then! The other answer I received was that I was honest and down to earth, which I like to think is true.

When I've had the chance to do something new, I've always gone for it, so over the years I've done firewalking, worked as a radio DJ, piloted a light aircraft and to cap it all, packed up my life in the UK, and moved to Vancouver! Since then I've started snowshoeing too so I think I can say that I'm at least a little adventurous, and don't take the easy route, just because I can. Given how quickly I've decided to do some of these things, you might think me somewhat spontaneous too!

I have a good sense of humour, but it can be a bit dry sometimes so I'm told. I can laugh at myself too, so no need to worry about offending me too easily.

I'd like to meet someone kind, who at the very least tolerates my occasional madcap behaviour or better still supports it!. Someone who has hobbies and interests too, which if they're the same as mine, we'd have something in common, if not then I'd have the opportunity to learn about something new.
What I’m doing with my life
At the moment, joining lots of new things to see what adventures I can get up to in 2013.
I’m really good at
Fixing things (except cars), or making useful items out of stuff others would throw away.
The first things people usually notice about me
Would love to say my smile, but who knows, probably my British accent.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've been on a bit of a trashy sci-fi book reading spree lately, but some of my favourite books of all time are:

Chickenhawk - Robert Mason
David Hewson's Nic Costa series
Ian Kellerman's Alex Delaware/Petra Connor books
Dan Abnett's Double Eagle
War of the Worlds - H.G. Wells

As for movies, I used to watch lots, but not so many these days as I find they don't hold my interest as much as they did. Faves are probably Star Wars (the original 3), Apocalypse Now, Zulu and the original Italian Job.

When it comes to music, I like all sorts. Mostly I listen to rock (most types) but my ipod also has blues, hip hop and classical on there (amongst others). If I had to choose favourite artists/bands it would have to be Pearl Jam, Iron Maiden or Joe Bonamassa, having seen all of these live in the last few years.

Food, I like it! Pretty much happy to try anything, but I can't use chopsticks at all, so if I can use a fork it's all good!
Six things I could never do without
In no particular order:

1. The internet, without it I could be on here!
2. My car, it's nothing special but I love the freedom it gives me
3. My paints and models, I need to be creative
4. Books, nothing like some good escapism!
5. Games (any sort), scratches the competitive itch
6. My camera, so I can capture the beautiful and inspiring images
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Lots of things, my mind never stops whirling! Often it's planning trips or activities, thinking about hobby related projects or forming opinions on current events.
On a typical Friday night I am
playing tabletop wargames with friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hmm, well I think I can share this one, every year my mum sends me sugar mice at Christmas, and has done since I was a child. You might think it's sad, but it's just tradition!
The two of us
