My self-summary
I'm often told I look nothing like George Clooney.

I once created a question for the Okcupid match algorithm: "Do you enjoy answering these questions?" Pretty deep, huh?

Ethically non-monogamous. Nothing too serious, nothing too superficial.
What I’m doing with my life
I like art, music and film, work for an environmental NGO, volunteer in animal rights, and try to make the world a better place in a tiny way. I currently split my time between London and New York. In 2014-2015 I also travelled to 30 countries and lived in airbnbs and hotel rooms for 51 successive weeks.
I’m really good at
Well... if we find ourselves in some sort of zombie apocalypse or 'The Road' style scenario, you're in deep shit and going to wish you went for that rugged, outdoorsy guy. Though since reading The Road I have accumulated a lot of canned food. Maybe I'm good at 'being prepared'
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall and thin and bespectacled and probably dressed like a cat burglar.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Polonius: "What do you read, my lord?" Hamlet: "Words, words, words". Recently I've read Houellebecq, Bukowski and Coetzee but don't hold it against me and don't ask me to pronounce their surnames. I've also been reading Cormac McCarthy and can pronounce that so I'd have led with that if you were asking me in person.

Music: "Writing about music is like dancing about architecture", Zappa said. Suffice to say, I like good music of almost any genre and often go to concerts.

Movies: Plot over enormous special effects budget please. Favourites include Lost in Translation, There Will Be Blood, Delicatessen, Dead Man, The Apartment, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Annie Hall, A Clockwork Orange. And Pink Flamingos made me feel physically ill but I really want to see it again.

Food: I'm vegan and like most things that didn't come out of an animal.

Art (I'm unilaterally adding this): Goya, Courbet, Schiele, Soutine, Beckmann, Debuffet, Giacometti, Bacon, Freud, Twombly, Saville.
The six things I could never do without
Food (No, not the album by Zico Chain)
Water (No, not the 2005 Oscar-nominated film by Deepa Mehta)
Air (No, not the French band. Look, give me a break, I was running out of ideas.)
And three other things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
"Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, The Hound, Polliver and The Mountain."

What's the meaning of liff?
What colour is Thursday?
What'd it be like to live on a boat?
Should I learn to play the hurdy gurdy or the musical saw?
On a typical Friday night I am
Getting together with friends to discuss our recent Facebook posts.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like doing the dishes. Don't you dare tell a soul.
You should message me if
You feel some simpatico with what I've written and don't think you'd be bored by conversations we might have over coffee or caramels. a.k.a. you're fun and lovely, you think I'm fun and lovely - what are you waiting for?
