Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"'A life, Jimmy. You know what that is? It's the shit that happens
while you're waiting for moments that never come."
- Lester Freamon, The Wire
I love science and science fiction, especially Doctor Who. I make
delicious food and awful puns. I'm not a fan of big loud parties,
I'd much rather go out to dinner or play a board game with a few
good friends and a few good drinks.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've just started a Masters research project into inherited muscle
diseases! I'm really enjoying it, I wouldn't want to be doing
As a new year's resolution I've started taking writing much more
seriously and for the first time in my life I don't hate every word
I produce. It turns out the secret to that is to just tell the
story my way and not try to sound like anyone else! Who'd have
The rest of my free time is a mix of reading, cooking, catching up
with my family, hanging out with friends, or just goofing around on
Long-term goals are to work full-time in research and buy a house
some day. Short-term goals are to pay off my car loan, socialise
more and get enough sleep.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh when they least expect it
Remembering the name of the guy who was in the thing with that lady
who sings the song your friend doesn't like, you know the one...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height. I'm tall, but not really "WOW that guy is tall!" tall.
And probably my accent? It's a sort of Irish-English-Aussie blend
that I inherited from my parents despite living in Perth all my
life. Also, I instinctively walk quietly so sometimes I sneak up on
people by accident. I guess in those cases the first thing they
notice is that I'm THERE AT ALL WHOA JESUS I SPILLED MY DRINK.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A good book to read
Word processing software
At least one lie-in per week :)
Making people laugh (I think it's the meaning of life)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Usually some kind of problem-solving, whether it's to do with my
job or in my own life. I also think about Doctor Who. Like, a lot.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I'm not working I'll be out to dinner with my Dad, as is our
tradition. I might stay up late or go out afterwards though.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have chronic depression and anxiety but for the most part I
control them. Sometime's my brain's like "Isn't everything
meaningless yet also really scary?" but I'll be all "FUCK YOU I'M
TOO OLD FOR THIS SHIT" and elbow it in the face.
