Although I've got a BA in English and a past career as an army officer, I'm currently an Evolutionary Biologist in training. I feel really lucky to be on a career path that I'm passionate about! I love learning about the world around us and am looking for someone to share in that adventure with me.
I've been to some cool places (like Christiania in Copenhagen), done some fun things (like bar-hopping in Dawson City), and seen some sublime sights (like the Milky Way over the Andes on a clear winter night). But there's so much more I want to see and experience!
Being portable (I never complain about the leg room and make a great a great travel partner).
I make a mean cocktail: I'm pretty sure I could give 1980s Tom Cruise a run for his money.
People are usually surprised to find that I have blue eyes. They probably think that looking into a ginger's eyes should be like looking into that place Sam Neill went in Event Horizon. I don't blame them.
Music: Arcade Fire, Muse, Kaiser Chiefs, Modest Mouse, Metric, Arctic Monkeys, Leonard Cohen, David Bowie, Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Gob, illScarlet, The Offspring, Pink Floyd, Radiohead, The Smashing Pumpkins, Queens of the Stone Age, Weezer, The White Stripes, and more!
Movies: Let's just say that Indiana Jones and the original Star Wars trilogy played pivotal roles in my development as a human being.
Food: I'll try anything once. Except balut.
I love all kinds of food from all kinds of cultures, but Indian is always a favourite (I know India is a vast, heterogeneous sub-continent the cuisine of which should not be indiscriminately lumped under one label, but I'm a horrible person).

Also, if you're kind, like to laugh, and have a positive outlook on life, then I'd like to hear from you!
