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 value heart and intellect equally and relish debating/exploring philosophical, psychological, creative and political questions. I appreciate messages that from men who are unafraid to share some real information about themselves.

Please don't contact me with a 'Hey how are you?' Or 'Hi can you tell me more about yourself?' I find these openings arrogant, lazy and a sign of a lack of generosity and imagination. I don't respond to them. Similarly I have no interest in overtly sexual come-ons, or men looking for no-strings 'fun'. If you're a generous communicator with an interest in social issues and a sense of the absurd, I'd love to hear from you.
