about me

Vivamus... atque amemus... da mi basia mille, deinde centum, dein mille altera, dein secunda centum, deinde usque altera mille, deinde centum...

Aspiring aesthete, belletrist, bon vivant & quasi-sophist.... & may also experience the odd man crush [eg M Fassbender, Prof B Cox, Hugh F-W].

I am a shallow individual of quite dubious morals & no sense of irony. Quite partial to aesthetic, Epicurean & hedonistic shenanigans, not to mention miscellaneous hi jinks. I am seeking an intelligent, attractive voluptuary with similarly dubious morals & sense of irony. If you too have a predilection for sampling the capital vices, I'd like to hear from you. Aficionados of all-round mischief-making, tom foolery & jackanapes will also be considered.

I originally grew-up in rural NSW before moving to Canberra to study journalism & ended-up working in fashion retail. I then moved to Sydney to complete my social work degree & remained there until I left for the UK early 2003. As a social worker I have mainly worked in child protection & social welfare.

I lived & worked in England for over 5 years. I travelled extensively throughout the UK, Italy, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Austria, Belgium, Sweden & Greece. I moved to Melbourne from England in early 2009, & now consider myself an honorary Melburnian.

I'm intermittently fit, prone to prolix & non-sequiturs, usually reflective, mostly compassionate & always idealistic. Left-leaning politically, but can experience bouts of Stalinist megalomania every now & again.

I love live music, robust conversations, rustic free houses, good wines & real ales, collecting/wearing natty patterned socks/shoes, art galleries, bohemian cafes & good coffee, cooking, eating chocolate & kissing [reputed to be an excellent kisser]. I have supped with serving & aspiring PMs, & starred [the term is used advisedly] in a Tropfest film [with unscripted nude scene].
