I will never own a car with "my family" stickers on the window. I
hate people who litter and shout at people who do. I am crazy about
plants and flowers. I am a complete science nerd. I believe life is
too short for bad coffee, margarine, dealing with call centres and
worrying about what other people think. I believe in active
participation rather than complaining about things.
What I’m doing with my life
Building a career and trying to create / change an industry. I
suspect most people who know me think that I work too hard, but I
love what I do. Spending time with family and friends is important
too. In my spare time I am on the mountain, planning my next
holiday, exploring the city, or involved in a new project.
I’m really good at
- ready, steady cook (making dinner for many people out of random
- appalling spelling
- I have amazing Google skills
- untying knots
- growing things
- navigating new places/reading maps
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't own a TV but watch series and movies on-line instead.
I read all the time - what I'm reading depends on what interests me
at the moment or recommendations.
Food and cooking is important - I love entertaining friends and
going out to dinner. I do not consider KFC or McDonalds food. Very
happy to be considered a food snob but believe in eating real food
not processes plastic.
Music is important too and I listen to a lot of indi and folk
The six things I could never do without
Besides the usual (f&f, pets, wifi):
- Earl grey tea
- Books / kindle
- Post-it notes
- My collection of art
- Toasted cheese & tomato sandwiches
- Whiskey & soda
- And at the moment instagram
But the list changes depending on the day.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Anything & everything. I spend a lot of time thinking about
problems I'm working on. But I like giving myself 'non-thinking'
time because that is often when I come up with the answer or the
meaning of life (ha!).
On a typical Friday night I am
Out for a post work week run on the mountain, followed by dinner
and drinks with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a real scaredy pants when it comes to heights, including open
staircases and glass lifts, and horror movies. I also have an
irrational fear of snakes and fruit salad.
