My self-summary
When I was a child I wanted to be a radio announcer: I thought people squeezed into the radio every morning, then grew again every night. these days I like to have more space to move in.

I teach writing & International Development & make short films - collaborative commissioned pieces with a human rights focus for NGOs and small arty things for myself. I adore shared projects, riotous conversation and expanding possibilities. I work in the city and live in a community minded Victorian town.

I value heart and intellect equally and relish debating/exploring philosophical, psychological, creative and political questions.
Please don't contact me if you are married, into polyamory or one-nighters. I appreciate messages that from men who are unafraid to share some real information about themselves and what makes their world go round.
