My self-summary
I have had two passions throughout my life: music and literature, hence my undergrad degree in music and my masters (never completed) in eng lit.

I love to cook and enjoy cooking shows like Top Chef. I enjoy fine dining and am a beer geek and a wine wonk.

I live to read, and enjoy cinema, mostly independent and foreign, although I'm a sucker for rom-coms.

I'm a cat person but I like dogs as well.

I love to share the Sunday Times Crossword puzzle over coffee.

I am looking for someone to share time with and join with me in the battle against the forces of evil.

Oh! and I play the Mandolin.
except...
these days I am mostly into jazz drumming, especially brush work, and hope to get a jazz trio going....
except... I'm now playing a Tenor Ukulele...and so it goes...

Music.
On a typical Friday night I am
Ensconced in front of my laptop sipping wine and reading a book, while listening to Jazz.
