I’ve done this – try and come up with some concise, more or less coherant information about me – a time or two now, but it doesn’t seem to get any easier. Don’t know why. Given that the whole point of this site is (ostensibly) to put me across to a (supposedly) eager waiting world, the difficulty involved in doing this bit seems almost perverse.
Draw from that what you will….beats me.
OK, so I look more or less like the picture. It was shot a couple of years ago (by my crazy Italian friend Carlo) but I don’t think all that much has changed since, apart from the addition of a beard. I’m still wearing that jacket, for one thing. (More pics from the same set here)
What else? I’m 50, single and I’m a founding partner of A Word in Edgeways storytelling company. That’s how/where I make a living.
I’ve moved home 29 times, and have lived in Kenya and Scotland, but thankfully seem to have settled down a bit recently. I’ve lived in or near Milton Keynes for the last 8 years now. My current plan is to gradually slither into the long grass of rural Northants. Might take a while, given the current state of the financial and housing markets, but I’ll get there in the end.
I play low whistles, guitar and hand-drums. Last year being my 50th, lovely friends who should probably know better clubbed together and raised enough to buy me a tenor saxophone (thereby at a stroke both fulfilling one of my longest held ambitions and having a significantly negative impact on property prices in my road)…I reckon my main social talent is enticing people over to my place and cooking at them. There’s hardly any left-overs, as a general rule, so I guess that makes me a good cook, or someone with a lot of hungry friends, or both.
That’s it, for now.
Like I said, the whole idea of this site is to be a place for me to talk aloud (in one way or another).
Be good to hear from you, too…
