My self-summary
"...almost the whole world is asleep. Everybody you know. Everybody you see. Everybody you talk to... only a few people are awake and they live in a state of constant total amazement."

I love serendipity. I'm always up for adventures to interesting places. I love being creative and all things arty and love trying new things.

I didn't think it needed stating but apparently it does. I am looking for a relationship but I'm also open to making new friends and travelling companions.
What I’m doing with my life
I live in Stoke Newington in London. I work in a gallery shop and love art of all kinds. I paint, draw and make stuff. I occasionally DJ, manage an amazing band and I love live music. I stage arts and crafts events at small festivals such as End of the Road Festival.

I collect comics, musical instruments from around the world and tin robots.

I love to travel. After seeing The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, I resolved:

I've been to Madagascar working for an NGO studying lemurs, and have also visited Iceland, Morocco and India. I would love to have a companion for future adventures.

I like swimming and going for long walks, and discovering interesting new places. I also love spending time playing with my friends' extremely adorable kids.

"Love can travel thousands of miles and so life has no limits. Move to where you want to go. Strive to reach the goals you want to achieve. Everything is in your heart and in your hands."
Steve Jobs
I’m really good at
being happy, making stuff, making friends and making people laugh.

I'm good at many things: first and foremostly, being a friend, an uncle, a playmate and a person. I'm good at painting, drawing, magic tricks, massage, making chocolate desserts and vegan pizzas, hula-hooping, DJing and actually getting people dancing, organising music and arts events, keeping children amused, helping people (especially bands and musicians I love), listening, talking, remembering things, enjoying life, enjoying my own company, being patient, staying calm under pressure, finding the BEST thing happening on any given night, reading films, making things, fixing things, imagining things, finding things on the internet... enjoying myself at karaoke... and making lists of course.
The first things people usually notice about me
I always smell nice apparently... but this could just be wishful thinking.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What adventures I'll get up to next.
On a typical Friday night I am
out at a gig or hanging out with friends...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't have many secrets... just things yet to discover.

Ask me nicely and I might just tell you...

"Love is within man. It is not imported from the outside. It is not a commodity to be purchased when we go to the markets. It is there as the fragrance of life. It is inside everyone. The search for love, the wooing of love, is not a positive action; it is not an overt act whereby you have to go somewhere and draw it out." Osho
You should message me if
if your dreams and realities sometimes collide in beautiful ways, and you want to meet someone who loves life and enjoys every moment, if you want little adventures and have a heart that smiles. Let's find out what secrets wait for us in the depths of the universe.

I'd love someone to have fun and little adventures with, so if you do like the sound of me then do get in touch.

“Really, the fundamental, ultimate mystery -- the only thing you need to know to understand the deepest metaphysical secrets -- is this: that for every outside there is an inside and for every inside there is an outside, and although they are different, they go together.”
Alan Watts
