ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I grew up in the UK,and later moved to Hong Kong where I spent a few years working hard, and playing harder. Time in Asia is akin to dog years with three years for every one, so by that reckoning six years later I moved to New York where I lived in Manhattan for a number of wonderful, maddening, exhilarating, and exasperating (often all in the course of a single evening) years. I now live in DC but continue to spend a lot of time in New York.

In terms of describing myself, the most obvious feature is my British accent. That's it - I'm a one trick-pony. That said, if you like that particular trick, it's not a bad one (and it leaves everyone with far fewer burns than juggling torches). I despise the exclamation mark, though acknowledge that my over-use of the parenthesis flirts dangerously close with the informality of the ! that I hate so much. I suppose that makes me a self-hating grammarian. On the upside though, I love the semi-colon, even though most Americans apparently find it unnecessary and pretentious - a critique that probably holds true for the British in general.

Beyond that, I'm tall, slim, and in possession of what might politely be called a "dry wit". I don't have particularly good hair, despite my barber's claims to the contrary, but compensate for it with nice eyes, long-eye-lashes, and much better teeth than my countrymen are rumored to have. On balance they require less maintenance, so I probably come out ahead.

To be upfront, I am the father of two beautiful and smart (often excessively so) little girls (seven and five).If you see a black convertible driving around DC one weekend with two cute blondes in the back seat belting out the songs of Grouplove, chances are that it's us.

In terms of interests, there is no escaping the fact that I am a man of extremes. While I adore 5 star hotels, seven course dinners, and wine from vineyards so far off the beaten track that you need a pack-horse to get there, I'm just as comfortable hanging out in grimy, dive bars at which hand sanitizer should be dispensed by the bouncer at the door.

On a more healthy note, I am fairly passionate about running, though do take considerable relief in DC's relatively flat topography. I live to travel, love to explore, and while I am unquestionably a city person on the surface with a love for all things urban, I'm a country kid at the very heart and love to get off the beaten path...though preferably with a Four Seasons in accessible proximity.

I am a disciple of the temple at 9th and V, otherwise known as the 9.30 Club. To explain why I love the place so much would be to waste hours of perfectly fascinating/boring (delete as deemed personally appropriate) conversation, but suffice to say the dingy concrete bunker is up there in my top 3 places in the world. To name the bands that I am into would be exhaustive (not to mention exhausting), but go to www.930.com, close your eyes, and point at the screen; there is a 75% chance that I'll be at that show.

Like many English majors, I went through a period after graduation where I feared that it had killed my love of literature, but fortunately, that proved not to be the case. My tastes run wide, including John Irving, Ian McEwan, Jonathan Coe, and Philip Kerr. I am also a huge fan of Chuck Klosterman, and only wish that I could write with a fraction of the wit and self-knowing style that he does.

As for what I'm looking for, I don't think that we need to be clones of each other, but I do believe strongly in commonality of interests and personality. For what it's worth, I'm an ESTP if that helps with assessing compatibility.

Book club, Coffee and conversation, Business networking, Dining out, Movies/Videos, Museums and art, Music and concerts, Exploring new areas, Nightclubs/Dancing, Performing arts, Shopping/Antiques, Travel/Sightseeing, Video games, Wine tasting

For fun:

I love to travel, both domestically and internationally. I also love to read, whether it is be be high art, or trashy novels veiled behind the glorious anonymity of e-books.

Favorite hot spots:

In DC: the 9.30 Club; Rock and Roll Hotel; The Black Cat; The Red Derby; Boundary Stone; Old Souls Bar; and The Raven. Elsewhere: NYC; Hong Kong; London; Sydney; Cape Town; Chicago; and music festivals everywhere.

Favorite things:

Live music; movies (unapologetically big Hollywood blockbusters over art-house fare); running; writing; wine and craft beers.

Last read:

"Amy, 27" - a biography of Amy Winehouse and the six other members of the "27 Club".
