Hello, everyone. I'm Ally ­čĹő

Well, I'm a Scottish chap (although I am half-American on my mum's side) and I am very much a man of opposites; geeky/bookish on the one hand but with a bit of a wild streak, too(!). I am not quite the hedonist I once was as I try to adult more but I still have a very pronounced sense of fun.

I'm a musician. I play guitar, drums, and bass (all very badly) but tend to sing (even more badly- I think of myself more of a lyricist than a singer, really) when in a band. I've done lots of gigging/recording and am very passionate about music. I like post-punk, desert rock, blues, jazz, opera, prog rock, punk, acid rock, new wave, cold wave, dark wave, no wave, art rock, avant-garde, classical, indie, Britpop, shoegaze, dream pop, country, folk, glam, goth, grunge, thrash, and some pop, trip-hop and suchlike.
I am also into the arts and culture more broadly. I love literature (English, French, American, and Russian, especially), poetry, and theatre. I also try to read very widely across the humanities and social sciences and am an avid book collector.
I am also into your usual geek culture- sci-fi, fantasy, graphic novels, video games etc.

For work, I am currently finishing up a doctorate in social policy (my undergraduate degree was in social and economic history) and teach at my university. I research poverty because I want to make the world a better place and like to think I have the sort of warm and empathetic nature one would associate with such a profession. I have also been an activist since I was a teenager.

I am a bit of an eccentric. I have quite a flamboyant sense of style and dress. I also collect cuddly penguin toys.

Anyway, feel free to message me if you'd like to chat!
All the best.

PS: I am really busy right now so if I look at your profile and don't message, it is not a sign that I wouldn't want to talk. Just that I was probably browsing quickly and didn't have time to sit and write a proper introductory message.
