I'm 53 and from 'Docklands' - London
I'm looking for a woman
I'm interested in: Friends, Social Networking, Romance, Short Term Relationship or Long Term Relationship
[Last logged on : quite some time ago]
I love, play and compose music in my spare time.
While I work for an investment bank as a technical systems architecture I would not describe myself as a city type or IT geek. I am half Italian, half South African and grew up in three different African countries so I like to have a wide circle of friends from different countries, cultures and professions. I am extroverted and a sociable person.

My passion is music! I play guitar and bass, plus compose music in my home studio. I used to play in a band. I have a fairly large guitar collection. I love Latin music, especially Brazilian music, as well as Jazz and World Music.

I love Modern Art and my favorite artist is Salvador Dali. Other favorites include: Juan Gris, Kandinsky, Banksy, Stanley Spencer to name a few. I enjoy going to art exhibitions, museums and other cultural events.

In recent years I have gotten into fitness. I go down the gym a minimum of twice a week and work with a PT once every two weeks to ensure my technique is correct and learn new exercises (like using the ViPR and TRX). I recently got into cycling and enjoy going on weekend rides exploring new parts of London and other parts of the country. It would be great to meet someone who enjoys social/touring cycling, as opposed to commuting or racing.

I am currently learning how to dance Samba de Gafieira and Zouk Lambada, which complements my love of Brazilian music.

Attributes I am looking for include: good communication, honesty, open mindedness, tolerance, intelligence. Unfortunately, as I am a non-smoker my deal breaker is smoking. I am looking to date someone who lives in London - preferably close to Canary Wharf or centrally enough so it is easy to spontaneously meet up.

It would be great to meet someone who shares some of the same values and interests!
