My self-summary
I'm Ben. Psychology and Philosophy graduate. Live for music and play guitar whenever I can, also enjoy running, cooking and learning new things.
What I’m doing with my life
IT consultant working with Barclays as a migration analyst.

Playing guitar is a lot of fun. I enjoy writing music and do it as much as possible, always open to collaboration because I believe other people help us access our full potential.

Love running; there's no freer feeling especially when I have my music playing. Creating a decent running playlist is an art unto itself, I spend too much time hitting skip until I find the perfect track.
I’m really good at
Coming up with random information, naming that track, playing guitar. I enjoy my cooking, sometimes other people do as well.
The first things people usually notice about me
People often say I'm quiet at first. I prefer to process in new situations and say something worthwhile rather dance around with pleasantries.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: 1984, Brave New World, A Clockwork Orange, The Diamond Age, Jonathan Strange and Mr Norell, Cloud Atlas, The Book of Dave. Reading a lot of dystopian fiction recently which is... mainly depressing but I guess if I wasn't enjoying it I would have stopped by now!

I read quite a lot. It's always interesting to reread books and see what they're like the second time round. I like to say that you can never read the same book twice.

Films: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Fightclub, Scott Pilgrim vs the World, The Truman Show, American Beauty, Donnie Darko. I watch Groundhog Day every groundhog day. Starting to get into Wes Anderson.

My preference is for films that make you think and rely on strong characters rather than overblown special effects.

Programs: Bojack Horseman, Community, Peep Show, Charlie Brooker's Screen Wipe, Rick and Morty.
I love shows that can balance humour with a more serious storyline and I tend to be loyal to shows long past the point where I should have given up on them (looking at you Dexter and Supernatural).

Bands: Too many to list but The Mars Volta, Autechre and Sonic Youth have been long time favourites of mine. Feel free to check my last.fm account if you want to see more of what I like. http://www.last.fm/user/lambsisters.
I have quite extensive taste in music and have made it a goal to try and sample a little bit of as many genres as I can however I would probably get pigeon-holed as a metal head as I listen to a lot of "screamy music" and if you take issue with that we probably won't get along.

Foods: Pizza (any is good but homemade is amazing), Indian, Italian, Chinese. I love spicy food and tend to add sriracha chilli sauce to most of the things I eat. I do a lot of my own cooking and find real joy in eating something I've made myself.
Six things I could never do without
Music (which I guess means my iPod or phone to listen to it with)
My guitar (I have mine next to me whenever I'm at home)
Good alcohol
Sleep (I function appallingly on little sleep)
Life would be pretty inconvenient without an internet connection.
Empathy (there's nothing worse than someone who can't relate to other people's feelings)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Songs I've heard throughout the day or song ideas I have for my own music. When I see a disappointing film I think about how it might have been improved.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably grabbing a drink with my friends at a near by pub or bar; clubbing just isn't my thing. I'd happily talk about music I like but often find myself engaged in some kind of deep philosophical conversation.
Friday night is a pretty good time to hit the gym since most people are out doing other things.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I know way too much about Harry Potter
You should message me if
You want to listen to music together, talk about learning languages or get advice on playing guitar. If anything on my profile interests you drop me a message.
The two of us
