My self-summary
I'm an easy going guy who likes to do things his own way, I don't follow the crowd. I like to try new things and see new places - I've travelled to quite a few European countries and parts of the US to see something new and meet new people.

My interests are a bit off from the norm as you'd probably expect. I love American sports - Hockey, Football and Baseball (even though I only really understand Hockey!). I also love travelling and some day I'd like to visit a few more places like Norway and Egypt. I like to read about ancient cultures and I listen to metal and a little bit of electronic music.
What I’m doing with my life
By day I'm a software developer for a giant Media group. By night I'm usually asleep!

I work in London and live about an hour North of there in a place called Ely. Currently trying to buy a place of my own so things are a little bit hectic.

Aside from that I'm working on keeping myself in a reasonable state of fitness, I might never get really ripped but I'm no slouch either.

Right now I'm looking for more friends than anything serious, but I'm open to the possibility of meeting someone significant.
I’m really good at
Making awful puns that you just have to laugh at!
Sticking by people when times are tough.
Consuming food - I love food and will eat almost anything that doesn't have lemon in it.
Being skinnier than I have any right to be given my love of food.
The first things people usually notice about me
If it's on display, my tattoo (right arm half-sleeve), if not then how personable I am.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love reading, favourite authors include Terry Pratchett, Iain M Banks (the Culture books are amazing), David Eddings. I've read A Song of Ice and Fire up to book 5 (no spoilers please!) and a few other big books in scifi like Dune. I also really enjoy factual books, ancient cultures or music being my topics of choice.

Favourite movies are really hard to list because there's so many genres and movies. I love a good superhero blockbuster, Avengers, Iron Man etc. Aliens is probably one of my favourite films of all time. World cinema is also pretty good, Takeshi Miike is one of my favourite directors and I really enjoyed Infernal Affairs and Oldboy.

Music is easy - I love metal! I don't expect everyone to be into it, but it's the music that speaks to me the most. Favourite bands include Dream Theater, Nile, Bloodbath, Soilwork, (old) In Flames and Bathory.

Favourite food is anything that doesn't have lemon in it.
The six things I could never do without
Coffee, music, friends, the internet, booze and Hockey.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Planning my weekends out well in advance. I don't get much time in the evening to do anything given how far I travel for work every morning so if I don't plan things they never get done.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out for drinks with friends or just relaxing at home and prepping for a good weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a huge nerd.
You should message me if
You're looking for someone who's not afraid of doing their own thing.
You want a serious discussion about anything I'm interested in, I can get a bit intense when the topic is one I'm really into.
You're prepared to put up with (or hopefully you really love) terrible puns and jokes sprinkled with occasional comedy gold.
