HeadlineActive sociable bloke looking for fun, excitement and someone to share it with
Things I like... swimming at the beach most mornings, occasional motorcycling on Sundays outside of the city, coffee, occasional live music either contemporary, jazz and even the odd classical, opera or blues (basically anything but heavy metal or typical Top 40) and coffee overlooking Coogee Beach.
I enjoy travelling, managing to get to Europe usually once a year, especially Germany and Austria, to see friends and travel around, maybe a conference or 2. But also to France, Switzerland, England... anywhere I have friends and maybe a few other places.
I love the media and read news and current affairs religiously, maybe too much so, but then I can justify that it's work related!
And I guess now that I have a gorgeous little dog, you must have a fondness for dogs too. I'm pretty smitten with my little girl and she keeps me active. She's also a friendly little girl so there's plenty of room for another woman. :)
I love food, enjoy cooking and eat mostly organic food at home, but love eating out, especially Thai, Italian, French and modern Australian food. But I have a weakness for kettle chips and Natural Confectionery Company lollies! I'm working on that one. :)
Coffee is a passion. I have my own espresso machine on which I can make a fantastic coffee! On Saturday mornings at least I try and get out and about to one of my regular places for breakfast, either with friends or the newspaper.
I work for myself and have done so full time for 10 years, which is great as I can travel and work, or just have a siesta if I really think I must. :) And spend more time with my dog!
And while the preference is for someone close by, someone further away is fine if they don't mind spending time closer to the city areas. I even contemplate moving to Newcastle sometimes. Who knows.

What I'm looking for
I'm looking for someone I'm attracted to, someone who can make me smile and who can cope with my desire for my daily swim regardless of anything else!!! Someone who can go from dressing up for a nice dinner or the opera to trainers and jeans on weekends for breakfast in a cafe or the cinema.

- Other Interests
- Curious about the world, motorcycling, the ocean, Europe - especially Austria, Germany, France and England, but also other places. And as Graham Norton said: You're far better off finding ways to enjoy the life you're living than mourning the life you're not, which is a double whammy of unhappiness
