I'm a peace loving vegetarian liberal guy, I'm also a skeptical atheist Quaker. I work for the government as a marine ecologist. I love music, camping, kayaking, cooking and the normal stuff like being with friends. I'm a self confessed geek but I do have some social skills at least. :)
What I’m doing with my life
Working, sleeping, talking. All the usual essentials. I'm also enjoying my new job which mainly involves talking to people about very boring things in an eager fashion.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh, juggling, coming out with very random facts.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm a big loud (but friendly) giant.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Tolkien / Terry Prachett / Douglas Adams / Bill Bryson/ George RR Martin/ Isaac Asimov
The Shawshank Redemption/ Empire Records/ Scott Pilgrim/ Empire Records/ Airplane/ The Holy Mountain

The six things I could never do without
Reading, my friends, music, being outdoors and podcasts (not necessarily in that order).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Science, skepticism, politics (with a small p and sometimes a big P)
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching a very random film on the sofa with my housemates.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have an enormous tongue.
