I suppose you've come to this page to find out about me - so I'll put aside that self-conscious feeling of overindulgence I get when I talk about myself to strangers and get on with it.
I've just finished up a PhD (well... almost finished. It's currently lost in the bureaucratic nightmare that is PhD submission), on a topic that is a hybrid of evolutionary biology and computer science. The whole ordeal has been somewhat traumatic.
Meanwhile, out of the ivory tower, I've a small consulting company with my supervisors. It’s pretty cool as it affords me a work life that is ethical, diverse, interesting, challenging, quality centric and time flexible.
That said, I’d rather not let work be the center of my life and only care about money as far as having enough to not worry about it. I’d much rather drive a shitty car (or, even better, ride my bike), spend less time working and more time with people/things I care about.
I'm open/honest to a fault, think that communication is paramount in all relationships, and get on best with people who are like-minded in that respect. I'm something of an idealist, especially regarding relationships.
I think people should be nice and look after each other.
