About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Looking for work. Learning Spanish. To win the Booker prize.

ABOUT ME

I am a native British-English professor and writer living in Buenos Aires trying to meet people who can help me learn Rioplatense Castellano and other languages.

PHILOSOPHY

Hmm...well I'm an ironic pessimist so I'd say: "be pessimistic to avoid disappointment", but I don't believe this. My problem is I'm too hopeful.
