Walking a new road. Wanting company.
Turning 30 in a couple of weeks, I have realised that most of what I have been doing so far in life has been lack-luster, un-challenging and essentially lead me nowhere.
As a result I have completely changed my life direction and am currently studying a pre-apprenticeship course at TAFESA to become an electrician. I find it challenging, exciting, and the aspect of working with thousands of volts of electricity is just thrilling!
Most of my working life has been in IT, including starting up my own business, but with the market forever changing, it became more hassle than it was worth, and ultimately brought me to this life changing thought to do something completely different.
I am an upfront and honest guy, if even a bit frank, and enjoy debating controversial topics for the pure notion of hearing other people's opinions and challenging their convictions.
I enjoy spending time with individuals, rather than being in a large group, as I feel it allows people to be themselves more, without the stigmatic need to 'fit in' to a scene. I have always been described as unique and strange in my philosophies, but for good or bad, I take that as a compliment.
My ideal leisure time would be doing something particularly left field, preferably something I have not done much of, if not at all. Rock climbing and caving have always been an entertaining and adventurous past time, but I have never really found anyone with an interest in joining me. Perhaps you will?
I am usually a happy-go-lucky guy with plans and motivations to get on top of life and change it for the better. I would really love for you to walk this new path with me.
Have a wonderful day! :)

What I'm looking for
Someone who has some decent idea of who they are, and has gone through the trials and tribulations of life to come to this conclusion. You don't have to exactly know the life you want to live, but be someone who has been scarred, come out on top, and willing to go again to find out life together.
- Female, for a relationship or dating
- I will listen to anything that isn't thrashing of instruments and screaming in to a microphone. Play me something and I'll tell you if I like it or not.
- More interested in historical context works, rather than anything fiction. Scientific/Engineering books also adorn my shelves.
- Movies & TV
- Documentaries, both history and natural world are equally as fascinating, and I love cooking shows; always try out the recipes too, when I can. I watch the occasional TV series that provoke thought and meaning; so anything like Jersey Shore and tripe like that is most certainly out.
- Will watch cricket if there is nothing else to do on a summer's day, and the first corner of a car race for the crashes, but although I was born and bred in Melbourne, I cannot stand AFL. I participate in historical martial arts and sword play weekly, as it's something different and challenging.
- Other Interests
- I am a historical re-enactor, focused on 9th Century Norway; or the Viking Age. I read historical documentation, trawl through records and archives, look at artifacts from excavations of burial sites, then recreate them as accurately as is possible these days. It is good to relearn the lost arts.
