I don't lie about my age but my age lies about me.
I find being upside-down in mid-air strangely relaxing. I swing, I flip, I leap, I stretch. My first athletic passion was gymnastics, and always will be.
I like to climb sculptures formed by the slow-motion rampage of geological forces over 100 million years.
I think a lot about the nature of spacetime, and fundamental aspects of particle physics. I write some of these thoughts down. Several of these written-down thoughts have been published in peer-reviewed journals.
I believe the definition of tragedy is a day spent without growth or achievement.
I don't sing under the shower. I dance salsa. Cuban-style.
In 2010 I completed a six-month cycling journey across the USA without a support crew. For an encore I rode from Sydney to Adelaide. If you fancy being a partner-in-crime for another internal-combustion-engine-free adventure spanning entire continents, apply within...
Although I love cycling, I don't wear lycra. Even though I have got the body for it.
I find people who take care of their health (not necessarily elite athletes, but just people who try to live a healthy lifestyle) to be the most attractive. That includes keeping intellectually fit as well as physically fit.
There is a wikipedia page about me. I didn't write it.
I am the philosopher-scientist-adventurer you thought existed only in works of fiction.
And I think these personal introductions always sound wanky, but I keep experimenting and trying to have fun with them anyway :-)
