My self-summary
Thanks for dropping by!

About me:
I'm a geek/nerd: I have wide interests, love learning, and occasionally do physics on the back of envelopes. I love a good discussion that covers many topics and takes many random tangents.

However I'm not the cave-dwelling sort of geek: on a nice day you will typically find me outdoors, perhaps at the beach, wakeboarding, kayaking or cycling.

I'm also passionate about music. I love to play guitar and sing, and occasionally dabble on other instruments.

Most people find me pretty easy to get along with and non judgemental. One of my favourite words is vulnerability and I love a bit of awkwardness. Myers-Briggs: INFP. 5 Love Languages: Touch.

P.S. I'm currently sporting a beard, I don't have any good photos yet but I've uploaded a selfie. This is an optional Matthew accessory that can be added and removed quite quickly. Haven't decided whether I'll keep it yet :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Mostly non-fiction with the occasional foray into fiction when something good is recommended.

Movies: Less explosions generally preferred unless it's a documentary. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is an old favourite.

Shows: Always up for some thought-provoking theatre. Also a big fan of musical theatre, and comedy/theatresports.

Music: I'm not judgemental about genres. A few artists I tend to listen to & cover: Leonard Cohen, Tim Minchin, Lana Del Ray, Radiohead, Crowded House, Kermit the Frog.

Food: Anything except oysters. I don't do oysters. Thai always a favourite. Oh and chocolate, is that a cuisine?
The six things I could never do without
Not counting the biologically obvious essentials: chocolate, tea, some sort of musical instrument, a spoon, a towel and the Internet. Really though, not very much, I think I could live pretty minimally. Wait, did I mention chocolate?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, purpose, direction. Epistemology, how little we can know about existence.
You should message me if
You want to do some fun outdoorsy activities together (cycling/kayaking/wakeboarding/etc).

Or you want to jam (or make jam, or something). I'm doing a lot of music stuff recently so I guess it would help a lot if that's something you're interested in, even if it's just singing while I play guitar (talent not required).

Or you want a buddy for musical theatre / theatre / other shows. There's always good things on in Sydney and I sometimes struggle to convince people to go.

Or (and) you think you're more interesting than the average bear and I should get to know you.
