My self-summary
I'm a geek who likes the outdoors... if that isn't enough to pique your curiosity I don't know what is!

I work as a consultant. I take my career pretty seriously and have a plan about where I'm going and all that.

Outside work I'm a metalhead who loves to cook... I make brutal cupcakes and delicious death metal sorbets! Also like blues, jazz, drum n bass, some classical... anything goes. My dancing is apparently both brilliant and hilarious at the same time. I won't be dancing in public but if you're lucky I'll make you crack up in private with some of my rude manoeuvres! That's kinda me in a nutshell - pretty serious and a little reserved in public, but get to know me or get me in private and I'll do just about anything to make people laugh.

I'm an ISFJ for anyone who is interested in MBTI.

I love going places - big trips to New Zealand, little trips round the UK, regular weekend hikes, going to gigs, holidays with family or friends, whatever! But there's certainly always room for cuddling up on the sofa or duvet days.

I do love being outdoors: walking/hiking, cycling, going off to do some photography somewhere, kayaking, sailing, swimming, archery. I get kranky if I stay cooped up indoors for too long!

I'm not sure if this adequately describes me, but that'll do for now.
What I’m doing with my life
Working hard, enjoying being with family & friends, enjoying learning new things (I want to teach myself to become a master of french cooking!). I've been saving for a deposit to buy a house for the past few years and should be buying somewhere soon.
I’m really good at
I'll cook you tasty treats
I'll make you laugh
I'll listen (I'm a good listener)
I can cure my own hiccups at will (worst superpower ever...)
I'm good at landscape at photography - check out some of my favourites
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: A Song of Ice and Fire series, Lord of the Rings, His Dark Materials, and various non-fiction like Imagining the Tenth Dimension, The End of Poverty, economic history stuff by Niall Ferguson, Bill Bryson

Movies: Scott Pilgrim vs The World, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, and Brewster's Millions. I'm quite the fan of cheesy 80's comedies. Recently, Dredd and Bad Grandpa.

TV: Black Books, IT Crowd, Big Bang Theory, Stargate, Star Trek, Scrubs, Spooks, 24, South Park, Dexter, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Family Guy, Cleveland Show, Mythbusters

Music: quite a variety of stuff - classic rock, metal of different types, drum n bass, dubstep, jazz, blues, virtuoso guitar stuff that I don't think fits any genre, accoustic guitar. All time favourite album is Blackwater Park by Opeth.

Food: Ribs, steak, beef wellington, sunday roasts. I make a great bolognese that has taken me 10 years to perfect the recipe, and I cook excellent curries, plus hot wings, and a crazy japanese cheesecake soufle. "Almost ruined the evening - dropped some soufflé mix into the bain marie" - my most ridiculously middle class comment on Facebook ever.
Six things I could never do without
The internet
My iphone & laptop
Music (Spotify!)
My awesome family and lovely friends
Sunshine & sunsets
Pepsi Max. It rocks my socks.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics (mostly about the injustice of inequality), economics, philosophy, planning stuff with friends, stuff I want to cook, places I want to go, stuff to buy. That kind of thing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out saving Gotham City from evildoers.... wait... I'm not supposed to let anyone know I'm batman (I can do the voice and everything!). Usually either at home doing a workout before relaxing and watching some TV, or having a meal with family, or out at the pub or playing board games with friends (Settlers of Catan is the best). In the summer I like to go on walks or cycle rides in the evenings.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Some of my socks have holes in them but I get too attached to them to throw them away.
You should message me if
You want a genuinely honest and caring guy in your life, someone who knows where he's going and how to get there, who isn't afraid of commitment, and likes having a good time. That would be me!
