If i'm coming to your city it's probably to go to a lot of galleries, hang out, walk endlessly around until my feet ache, swim, soak up the peculiar atmosphere, seek out the best street food, investigate the smallest most obscure nights out, and the junkiest junk markets...

I'm a big nerd, reader... contemporary art fan, especially where it touches politics or film.... interested in architecture, the history of cities... fan of diverse foods, eating out, cooking at home, putting lots of unnecessary things in the salad... like to see some noisy bands... or a performance piece which falls apart.
I'm British, lived for a while in Chicago.
I have a PhD in particle physics. Work for a web start-up.

I don't smoke.

Did I mention? I love books and reading...

(Mayakovsky, Kathy Acker, Mishima, Lorca, Heinrich Böll, Marguerite Duras, Brecht, Jean Genet, Queneau, Kenzaburo Oe, Achebe, Gide, Ionesco, Borges, Ronald Firbank, Malcolm Lowry, Soyinka, Nawal El Saadawi, Proust, Fumiko Enchi, Burroughs)

And I love too-serious and not-serious-enough movies...

(Fassbinder, Chris Marker, Toshio Matsumoto, Yvonne Rainer, Pasolini, Antonioni, Vera Chytilova, Paris Is Burning, Valie Export, unsichtbare gegener, Invitation au voyage, Almodóvar, Tarkovsky, Dziga Vertov, Douglas Sirk, Godard, Schlöndorff, Von Trotta, Ozu)
