In His Own Words

About him

The best place to start is within a hug.

Academic, former film & TV producer and director. Feel very fortunate to have travelled far and wide for work and pleasure which has given me a great appreciation and zest for life and this world we share.

Will try to update photos when I can. Facial hair is not a permanent fixture but seems appropriate for work; the private photos are more the real/intimate me (clean-shaven I'm told I look much younger!)

Some of my favourite things I hope we might share? Eclectic musical tastes, from opera and jazz to soul and r&b. Tokyo at sakura time. A great beach. Scuba-diving among tuna shoals. Sailing a catamaran across a placid Med and Indian Ocean. Walking through Joshua Tree National Park. Or National Trust's Sissinghurst and Erdigg. Thunderstorms over the Lake District. Wolves and wolf sanctuaries. Eddie Izzard (especially 'cake or death' 😂). Mac computers.

Cook reasonably (some say well). Dance reasonably (some say well).

About his ideal match

Non-prescriptive.

Happy just to have an occasional companion for opera, concerts, theatre, cinema, art. Someone who might just understand or tolerate my occasional shaved heads and desire to be on own sometimes.

Relatively recent main photo(s). Last 12 months preferably?

Anything else is see what happens...
