My self-summary
Hello there! Lawyer living in South London here, a fan of cooking, music, and setting the world to rights over a pint or two. I have a little bit of a cynical streak, but beneath the surface I'm very easy-going: I'm next to impossible to offend and can rub along fine with just about anyone. I love music of almost any sort and also like baking, reading, playing the piano, brushing up my language skills and hanging out with friends.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a trainee solicitor at one of the London borough councils, currently in the "Regeneration and Development" team (it's basically just like being in Parks and Recreation, without the jokes.)

Outside work I'm in a travelling choir and am currently trying to learn German for the umpteenth time with a view to maybe living there for a while one day. I'm also something of a gamer - love board games, especially new ones, and I should probably feel embarrassed about the number of video games I own.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Dark Materials, Lucifer Box trilogy, quite a few of the classics. My favourite book ever is Cold Comfort Farm, which never fails to make me cry with laughter even after reading it far too many times.

Films: I tend to go for offbeat, under-rated films a lot - couple of favourites are Wonder Boys and The Opposite of Sex. I also like feelgood comedies, the ones I'd probably describe as guilty pleasures if I believed in feeling guilty - Amelie, Big Fat Greek Wedding, Miss Congeniality, etc.

TV: Archer, Getting On, Nurse Jackie, HIGNFY, Only Connect, Murder She Wrote, Golden Girls. Love Judge Judy - I suspect on some level she's why I became a lawyer.

Music: Stevie Nicks, Sia, Goldfrapp, Lykke Li, Emiliana Torrini, Lena, Robyn, Bright Light Bright Light, Klangkarussell, Annie, Tina Dico, Mø... Anything from Scandinavia is likely to go down well with me.

Food: would have to be Thai I think, but I enjoy eating (and cooking) new things and will give anything a go once.
The six things I could never do without
Music.
Books.
Boots. (The footwear, not the chemist.)
Caffeine.
A pen.
My family and friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether Giles Coren is hot or a dickhead. Can't quite make peace with the idea that he could be both.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out dancing and having fun, or at home reading or watching those crummy documentaries about customs & immigration or sexual health nurses. But still having fun.
You should message me if
Anything above interests you, or makes you laugh, or makes you want to know more. Or if you're Del Marquis from the Scissor Sisters (it could happen, right?)
