In His Own Words

About him

Hello! I moved to the U.K. from South Africa in 2015 and have recently relocated to Greater Manchester.

I’m a barrister practising Commercial and Insolvency Law but I’m really passionate about music, especially classical (Purcell, Bach, Haydn, Bruckner, Pärt, Lauridsen), choral and opera. I play the piano & enjoy discovering new musical experiences. I love musical theatre, especially Sondheim. A huge fan of Hamilton!
Fav London places: British Library, Courtauld, V&A, Barbican.
I enjoy experiencing different cultures and languages and have dabbled in learning bits and pieces of several languages (when in France I get by in my mind passable French).
I love travelling when time allows- recent highlights: a secluded villa on a private cove on a Greek island and a transatlantic crossing on the Queen Mary 2.
I have 3 grown children living overseas whom I adore.
Those close to me describe me as warm, affectionate and engaging. I love meeting people and don't often feel uncomfortable around strangers. I’m known for making people laugh out loud and do not take myself too seriously at all (despite this very straight-laced bio)! I love Monty Python-type humour, Seinfeld, Larry David. I enjoy intelligent sci-fi and a good spy/action/police thriller. I much prefer a chilled venue with laid-back music (preferably live or jazz) in a great setting. I guess I'm also a hopeless romantic and have to confess to a soft spot for rom-coms (esp foreign movies).
I enjoy fine single malts and just returned from a trip to Scotland.
Am recently divorced and no pets of my own, although I love animals (crazy cat person) and have done my fair share of animal rescue and volunteering over the years.
I enjoy walking, hiking (Yorkshire Dales my fav) and regularly practice Iyengar yoga. I hit the streets to run now and again and enter charity 10K runs (albeit at my own steady pace).
I am keen to expand my horizons and start meeting some of the interesting and fascinating people behind some of those intriguing profiles out there!

About his ideal match

I’ve been single for a year now and this time has been very healing and valuable to my growth.

I’d like to meet a companion (kindred spirit) to accompany me on my many music and theatrical outings, museums and galleries, country walks, creating chaos in the kitchen together, or just relaxing at home.
If you can sing or play an instrument that’s an added bonus (scores many points in my book). I have played piano and keyboards for many years and also had years of vocal training. Wouldn’t you like me to serenade you with romantic ballads on the piano? Les Miserables? The Moonlight Sonata?
I have sung in choirs all my life and enjoy a good challenge, so you can see how important music is to me.
Apart from being pro-Remain and virulently anti-Brexit, I’m not really politically inclined. I really don’t frequent pubs much (unless for a cozy pub lunch) and never go clubbing.

For me, laughter is a key ingredient of any chemistry in a relationship as well as being able to really enjoy the same experiences in life.
