My actual head is not so elongated as it appears on this web site. I write newspaper articles, magazine articles and books. That's enough of the word "I", don't you think? can be pleasant, interesting, and appreciate other thoughtful people with good taste and humor. Not snobby at all but taste is important so if you know who James Kelman, Felix Mendelssohn, Pierre Boulez, Tom Stoppard or the Clash are/were that would be a good sign. Speak French, lived there for a while, learning German. Work as reporter and fulfill social obligations, love playing with my brother's kids. lived in Brooklyn until two years ago, now back home. love to travel (anyone ever been to Birkenhead? Although I still prefer Cardiff) cook, eat out, watch soccer games when I want to stop thinking, hear live music, play music and squash in my free time.
