About me: after spending several years overthinking everything while working on my doctorate, I'm looking forward to having fun and a paycheck (the two go hand in hand). I'm not looking for anything super-serious at this point, but if you want to help a new arrival find his feet and hear some interesting travel stories in exchange, I'm your man!
Things that are important to me include being active mentally and physically. I love to learn things and pretty much advanced as far as I could academically so that I could keep learning. Now that I can't go any farther, my hope is to land a teaching position for the next academic year. I am an avid traveler. I love being on the move, especially on foot, or by train. I also like to write - doing a PhD basically destroyed my ability to write pleasing prose, but I'm working on bringing it back. One thing I want to do more of is ditch the gym for the outdoors; Britain is not a congenial place for outdoor activity much of the time, but the opposite is true for California. It's time to get some sun.
