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 started up a small consulting company with my supervisors (who now refer to themselves as "colleagues", when justifying the Facebook add).
I'm not particularly career driven. I do what I do, because I fell into it naturally and I hope to keep myself dynamic for whatever adventures lie ahead. I mostly work from home and pick my own hours, which is simultaneously a wonderful and absolutely horrible thing!
I'm open/honest to a fault (you have been warned), 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 cherish all my relationships - they are what define me. I think people should be nice and look after each other.
I like this adjective game that people play on here. Here's mine:
I'm absurd, preposterous, paradoxical and, most of all, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
