I'm Philip, a married man with a teenage son and baby daughter. I play the violin and love to sing with my wife Shannon, in the BBC Symphony Chorus where we met. I also love to watch films and TV shows, especially documentaries and science fiction. My wife is into American soaps, romantic comedies and cooking programmes. We both love to watch Dallas, Game of Thrones, Mad Men and Dragons Den. My wife works in a professional services company; I am a supply teacher and work part-time. We both love to travel, my wife is Australian, so we have been there. Also, New York, Hong Kong, Langkawi and Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Paris, Italy, Czech Republic are amongst our favourite places. In New York we saw the show "Chicago", which we loved; we also went to the Met Opera to see Otello. I'm a pleasant, friendly sort of person who will greet you with a smile, as is my wife.
