"I am a teller of stories, a weaver of dreams. I can dance, sing
and in the right weather, I can stand on my head. I know seven
words of latin, I have a little magic and a trick or two. I know
the proper way to meet a dragon. I can fight dirty but not fair. I
once swallowed 30 oysters in a minute. I am not domestic, I am a
luxury and in that sense, necessary!"
I am a chef, a slinger of fire and a juggler of knives. I'm a fan
of interesting clothes, and modern adventure. I like to make maps
by hand of new places, and take long showers to wash the dust and
I've been heartbroken, and like bones my heart has healed stronger
at the seams. I no longer know exactly what I'm looking for, but I
think I'll know it when I find it.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a trade, which I am constantly looking to improve at. I work
at a vegetarian cafe, and I'm teaching myself some performance
cooking for private parties. I have stories in me, and I'm waiting
for them to come pouring out, and perhaps I'll have a book by the
end of it.
I'm involved in the Steam culture up here, but paradoxically I've
not been to SteamCon yet. It's always something in whatever kitchen
I have to be in, some emergency that crops up at the last
When I was a tot, I wanted to be a renaissance man when I grew up.
So I'm trying to live up to that now. I fence, I danse capoeira, I
just made an appointment for my first trapeze lesson. I juggle,
poorly. I write occasional columns for nerd websites. I wear
interesting handmade clothing, but not yet as much as I'd like to.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height. Every time, people who meet me say 'goodness, you're
tall!' or some variation thereupon.

The six things I could never do without
A good story
A comfy bed
On a typical Friday night I am
Slinging knife at the cafe until 10, and then out for a drink and
an adventure before bed.
You should message me if
You're an adventurer. I collect adventurers, and geniuses, and
people with big kitchens. If you want to meet any of the above
people; part of the point of collecting them is sharing them with
