I'm kind of a big deal people know me, I have many leather bound books and my lounge room smells of rich mahogany
About me I am easy going, down to earth, have a twisted sense of humour that I use to break the ice when I am nervous(sometimes to catastrophic results) Have been living overseas(the UK) for the past 10 years but have come back to give Australia another try and to be closer to family. Currently getting back into teaching after a long time away from it, which has meant a bit of career change but I am feeling all the better for having done so as I believe that you should be happy ion what you do and that reward is gained from applying yourself to meaningful things(though there is plenty of space for fun as well). I believe that life is an adventure that can only be made better by the sharing of the experience be it with friends or a partner. I am pretty active and enjoy swimming. cycling and walking as well as exploring new places and travel. I love to read and am working on being an author at the moment so hopefully this dream will eventuate and allow me more time to pursue travel and other interests. In my spare time I love to see live music or go to a gallery or second hand bookshop and am always up for a road trip or adventure. I consider myself a kind person and aim to be a decent human being taking an active interest in things that affect the world around me. What's interesting about me, I have lived almost equal parts of my life on three different continents, I), I want to do a long distance hike(Appalachian trail, pacific crest trail or Camino De Santiago) some time in the next 5 years. I once worked an entire shift dressed as Ron Burgundy from Anchorman wearing only a pair of underpants in a busy bar(and sober to boot). Oh well that should give you something to ponder.

What I'm looking for
Its hard to define what that person will be like as I have never really had a strict definition of what I am looking for all I can say is that enthusiasm, good humour, willingness to engage with life and the ability to challenge themselves and the world around them are things that intrigue me.
