In His Own Words

About him

Thoughtful, reflective, slow burning, creative, I'm an arts enthusiast - particularly for cinema, theatre and literature. I'm interested in others and what makes them tick and that makes me a good listener. I've had a career divided between, and sometimes combining, education with the professional theatre (as actor, director, writer). I also dabble a bit in property, really because I enjoy setting up places for people, not exploiting them. I see myself as articulate sociable and caring, having perhaps an empathy for life's outsiders. I have independent and sometimes quite maverick views. I have no time for tv, but do cinema a lot. I also enjoy reading, theatre, galleries, walking, cycling, pubs, some DIY work, living in London and go in for the odd pass at Scrabble or crossword. I've recently taken up bowls - I like the social mix and the banter. I listen to the radio, am tired of R4's constant chatter and go more for R3 with the odd dip into R2 (Sounds of the 60's - yeah!) Musically, I like folk, jazz, some classical and have a particular penchant for 30's Dance Band music: ' Love is the sweetest thing'! (Thanks, Al Bowlly, and out!).

About his ideal match

A match for me is partly made up of someone who responds favourably to what I've written about myself because I think it's important to share a few things in common, e.g. a feeling for the arts, a love of what London has to offer and an idiosyncratic appreciation of life. And a sense of humour is a must. I like someone who is lively, independent but who still likes to have a bloke around. I like individualists but ones who are prepared to make compromises and who have a general zest for life and perhaps a slightly odd take on it. I am not a political animal though my instincts lie to the left. Engaging with someone who is other might be difficult.
