I'm a voracious reader of science fiction, amongst other things,
with a taste for films, travelling, the odd bit of clubbing, and
Italian cooking (my own).
One of my favourite holidays was going to Gruyere in Switzerland,
passing the cheese factory at the bottom of the hill and making my
way to the delicate Swiss-French chateau at the top to enter the HR
Giger museum. The beers afterwards in the museum bar on Alien
furniture were a great finish.
What I’m doing with my life
Giving lectures, thinking about curvy spaces, staring off into the
middle distance before coming back to reality and having a little
I’m really good at
The first things people usually notice about me
Apart from the fact that I always wear black? That I keep up to
date on news, politics and current affairs.
Also, I am pretty liberal.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
For books I have to put something sci-fi. Left Hand of Darkness by
Ursula Le Guin is an amazingly moving feminist novel that always
brings a tear to my eye. I also love Last and First Men by Olaf
Stapledon, as it is a criminally neglected classic.
For films, it is simply too hard to pick just a few. Rattling out a
list like, The Piano Teacher, Delicatessen, Evil Dead II, Un Coeur
en Hiver, Dogville, GalaxyQuest, Hellraiser and Eternal Sunshine of
the Spotless Mind, might give you an idea of my tastes.
Music: Radiohead and Leonard Cohen when I am feeling low, Marilyn
Manson, Skunk Anansie and Serj Tankian when I am on my way out,
Nick Cave and Pink Floyd on my way back.
Food: Italian. No question. Good peasant Italian food. I appreciate
good food generally, and constantly bemoan UK food culture.
The six things I could never do without
Friends, hugs, love, books, pasta and grappa.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Friends, politics, technology.
On a typical Friday night I am
Dancing, drinking, hanging with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am somewhat into kink as a sub.
