About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Senior Library Assistant
Location Cardiff, Wales
Introduction I'm just a library assistant trying to make good in this world of fools. Or something. I tend to look either tired, surprised or be grinning. My movements are largely predictable. I'm quite fond of writing fiction and love reading and looking at things with my eyes. Some people say I look a bit like the balding ginger guy from the Orange Adverts. I sort of miss when people said I looked more like Simon Pegg.
Interests Primarily photography but also - reading, creating writing, music, films, walking, ales, telling everyone how great The Wire is.
