about me

Some are born ginger, some achieve gingerness & some have gingerness thrust upon them...

Who wouldn't want to be associated with the likes of these? Ozymandias, Cleopatra, Judas, Boudicca, Erik Raude, Genghis Khan, Henry VIII, Elizabeth I, Mary Queen of Scots, Napoleon, Lenin & Malcolm X.

I am a shallow individual of quite dubious morals & no sense of irony. V partial to aesthetic, Epicurean & hedonistic shenanigans, not to mention miscellaneous hi jinks. If you are an intelligent, attractive voluptuary with similarly dubious morals & sense of irony, I'd like to hear from you. Aficionados of tom foolery, mischief-making & jackanapes will also be considered.

I grew-up in rural NSW, moved to Canberra, studied journalism & ended-up in fashion retail. I then moved to Sydney, completed my social work degree & left for Blighty early 2003. I have subsequently worked mainly in child protection & social welfare.

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

I'm intermittently fit, prone to prolix & non-sequiturs, usually reflective, contrarian but compassionate & always idealistic. Left-leaning politically, with occasional bouts of Stalinist megalomania.

I love live music, robust conversations, rustic free houses, good wines & real ales, wearing mismatched socks/natty shoes, stripey tees, 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].

Also prone to the odd man crush eg M Goode, B Whishaw, I Gruffud, T Hiddleston, B Cumberbatch, E Redmayne.
