My self-summary
OK, so I'm quite tall, slightly geeky, but generally quite a nice bloke. Bit shy, then gradually more hyper as you get to know me. If it wasn't too obvious, I'd say that I like films, books, music and so on. I suppose I should say that I don't drink, so if you're looking for a boozy time, I might not be the best bet. Coffee is good, though. Judder, judder...

Not entirely sure what I'm doing here, but thought it would be good to meet new people.

I am creative, funny, and messy
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to scratch out a living as a writer. I mostly write fiction and while I've written a few novels, at the moment I'm having more success with novelty comedy books. It's early days, so don't get the impression that I'm earning Dan Brown-sized royalties, but I am starting to get a few things published. I also do some web design, graphics and animation. I'm not really very good at them, but enjoy it anyway. I like to try new creative stuff, but generally stay away from poetry, opera and interpretive dance.
I’m really good at
Being modest?

The realisation that this makes me sound sooo fucking nerdy
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What would happen if...?
On a typical Friday night I am
Having dinner with a few friends.
You should message me if
You want to have a chat and maybe meet up and have a wander.
