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. I later moved to New York where I lived in Manhattan for seven wonderful, maddening, exhilarating, and exasperating (often all in the course of a single evening) years. I now live in DC, though the travel bug has yet to thankfully really discover a vaccine.

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'm not a fan of the exclamation mark, though acknowledge that my over-use of the parenthesis flirts dangerously close with the informality of the ! that I dislike 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've been told that I have nice eyes, long-eye-lashes, and much better teeth than my countrymen are rumored to have. They require relatively little maintenance, so I probably come out ahead.

To be upfront, I am the father of two beautiful and smart (often excessively so) little girls (eight and five). If you see a car 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.

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). Go to their website, 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 my own pop culture musings had a fraction of the wit and self-knowing style that his do.

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 ("The Doer") if that helps with assessing compatibility.

Interests:
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
Sports & exercise:
Cycling, Running, Walking / Hiking
Exercise habits:
I exercise 5 or more times per week
Pets:
I'll tell you later
Political views:
Middle of the Road
Sign:
Aries
College:
I'll tell you later
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; and The Black Cat. Elsewhere: NYC; Hong Kong; London; Sydney; and Cape Town.

Favorite things:

Live music; movies; cable TV (I unashamedly root for the Lannisters in "Game of Thrones" - do what you will with that information); running; writing; wine and craft beers.

Last read:

"A Man Without Breath" by Philip Kerr. About to start "The Billionaire's Apprentice: The Rise of The Indian-American Elite and The Fall of The Galleon Hedge Fund" by Anita Raghavan.
