I'm addicted to "what happens next?" If I can predict it, it's
boring. I can't stand having a lack of wonder about the world and
about the next moment. I like people that can turn any boring
situation into fun and have a naturally happy approach to life. I
also like hard workers. :)
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an academic at the University of Melbourne - a casual lecturer of Masters and PhD students.
I’m really good at
Planning and staying on schedule... How boring? Well, makes more
fun possible, I think!
The first things people usually notice about me
A Cheshire cat like smile that promises fun. Maybe some mischief.

The six things I could never do without
1. A glass of whisky after a long day.
2. The solitude of my own personal space.
3. Meeting new people and the conversations they spark.
4. Throwing people together to see what happens next.
5. A crazy new plan or project.
6. A centered, unwavering internal core of happiness.
7. My motorcycle, laptop and camera.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Art and Literature! All kinds. Not my field, just an interest.
On a typical Friday night I am
Chasing down an art opening and catching up with friends for
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The 800+ questions I answered are pretty incriminating.
You should message me if
If you are interested in making a friend. I may or may not be right
