My self-summary
I am Brit who has been in the Bay Area for just over a year. British sense of humor and a highly trained Michael Caine impersonator.

This is how I feel about football: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPUuqtOPDUE
What I’m doing with my life
I work as an environmental scientist for an energy company in the East Bay. I have a fascinating job and get to see rockets being launched.

Outside of work: pottery,hiking, cycling, kite flying (please don't judge!), and just general exploring and traveling. I have been fortunate to visit and work with incredible people around the globe.
I’m really good at
DIY although I once gave myself electroshock therapy after doing some wiring (so maybe 'really good' would be overstating things).
Arguing against conservative nonsense clap trap ideas using the novelty of facts and data.
Brewing and drinking beer.
Growing food.
Doing a Michael Caine impersonation.
Reciting in its entirety Bill Hicks "Relentless" performance.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am a mind reader and can tell people exactly what their first impressions are of me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: mainly non-fiction and sci-fi.

Tv: Nathan Barley, The Day Today, John Adams, Breaking Bad, Silicon Valley, Game of Thrones, The Mighty Boosh, QI, Arrested Development, Curb, Peep Show, anything with Charlie Brooker, Daily Show, Colbert, Beavis and Butthead, The Ren and Stimpy Show.

Favourite music: I like anything that is good and has artistic merit. If you like Mumford and Sons then please do not contact me. My music taste is broad and eclectic with focus on electronic music. Some artists: Aphex Twin, Roni Size, Philip Glass, Krs-One, James Brown, Mozart, Pink Floyd, The KLF. I have two turntables and a microphone and an extensive record collection.

Food: I live on a diet of deep fried mars bars. I am allergic to Quinoa.
The six things I could never do without
1) Numerical lists
2) Comic-Sans
3) The warm fuzzy embrace of Sarah Palin
4) Sun-block
5) Air: ok, ok...you can see I am a comedy genius!
6) BBC News
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How dumb some of the questions are on OK Cupid like: "Have you ever murdered anybody?", "Are you currently a member of an international terrorist organisation?", "Do you consider Jesus your personal lord and saviour?".
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout and I like to get my party on and let loose...
You should message me if
You want to learn the rules of cricket and have a spare two hours. You wanna grab a beer and shoot the shit.
