I am an Englishman who moved to Stockholm in spring 2011. I recently became a Swedish citizen too, two days before Brexit and after a 14-month wait. I am very happy about this and enjoying my new-found Swedishness. I have even tried drinking coffee, but I think my heart will always beat faster for tea.
I'm passionate about music, especially indiepop although a fair few other alternative areas grab me as well. I play bass, but less so at the moment as I am not currently in a band.
Work-wise my background is in journalism (although that is not quite what I am doing now) so of course I love to read and write.
I love animals, especially cats, but after 19-years with a cat I adored I am currently without one.
If we are talking in English, they'll probably pick up quickly how much I like people. I am fascinated by people, and I am not afraid to ask questions, or tell stories of my own.
Music - Lots of indiepop, both old and new, and various other alternative things, often with a strong melodic component. As a bassist I do like that to be fairly clear in the music too.
Movies - Pretty much anything by Wes Anderson, then I Love You Man, Role Models, Star Wars, to be honest I have an only-slightly-guilty near-unconditional love for science-fiction. Learning more about Woody Allen at the moment.
TV - The West Wing, Last Week Tonight, Many shows on HBO, Parks and Rec, Buffy, more scifi.
Food - Vegetarian, erm... I like most things to be honest... nothing too bland though. Curry, chilli, italian, thai, chinese, it is all good. Oh and sweet things, I like those too.
A well-stocked bookshelf/music selection and kitchen.
A healthy curiousity.
What is going on with the people I care for.
Fiction, whether reading it or writing.
What on earth is going on in my life, it often feels I am a bit wide-eyed in surprise at the moment, but it's an amazing ride.
Work... I know, I know, but in my defence, they are paying me for it.
Wherever I am, hopefully with interesting people who have a lot to share.
