My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a cheery, friendly, left-wing historian and classicist. I love to travel, and regularly head out to the Mediterranean to soak up the sun and wander around dusty ancient cities (you've got to love a job with travel grants!). In spite of not being all that good at it, I enjoy singing, and have been in a curiously high number of am dram light operas and musicals over the years. I'm very fond of hiking in the country, especially the Lake District given all the excellent pubs. Other things I am are a scotch and beer enthusiast, avid reader, bit of a nerd, and an animal lover. I'm pretty sure that covers the basics: message me if you'd like to know more!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I started a research fellowship in Cambridge this year. At the risk of sounding cliched, I am one of those lucky people who loves what I do. Long may it last!

Outside work, I spend most of my time reading, rehearsing, gaming, at the gym, or catching up with friends and family.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh. Singing tenor lines badly (I'm really a baritone). Bumping into things. Making bruschetta. Practically inhaling coffee. Writing about people and things obscure and ancient.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Apparently I have a distinctively dirty laugh and a cheesy grin. Also my voice: it carries.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Difficult to choose, a selection will have to suffice:
Books - Persuasion, the Aubrey-Maturin series, LOTR, Sword at Sunset, A Song Of Ice and Fire, political and historical non fiction.
Movies - Master and Commander, The Matrix, 300, The Fifth Element, Troy, Top Gun (I know), Skyfall.
TV - BSG, Star Trek, GoT, Firefly, Black Books, West Wing, stand up comedy.
Music - all sorts, soft spots for rock, rap, and folk. Been listening to a lot of Within Temptation, Paramore, Sara Bareilles, and High Kings recently.
I game quite a bit too, so I'll throw those in here - Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Deus Ex, The Witcher. A little D&D here and there.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Assuming bare necessities are covered - family and friends (counts as one, right?), chocolate, coffee, games, a fully stocked bookshelf, and something worthwhile to do with my days.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The ancient Greeks, what I have almost certainly forgotten to do that day, when I can reasonably have my next coffee, food.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
In the pub with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I own a pair of Star Trek cufflinks.
