Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I just moved to Bournemouth to start as a trainee science teacher.
As you may guess I'm a bit of a geek. Aside from that, I'm really
into music, books and climbing.
I grew up in the highlands and so have a love for hills and the
outdoors in general. It's one of the reasons I started rock
climbing. I love going to weird, out of the way places which is why
I did the Mongol Rally last year and spent six weeks driving a
crappy Rover from the UK to Mongolia. If I had more money I'd

with the extraordinary. I'm currently reading a book about the
history of nuclear development in the US and some of Nietzsche's
work, so happy fun stuff.
Seven Samurai is probably the best film of all time. Drive is my
current favorite modern film. It had an amazing sound track, great
acting and looked beautiful.
I just finished watching True Detective and thought it was the best
TV show since The Wire.
I think Beethoven's 7th Symphony is the most beautiful piece of
music ever written. I'm into a whole bunch of different types of
music so here's a list of bands/composers I like: Jesu, Neurosis,
Tool, Ulver, Tenhi, Isis, Action Bronson, Bach, Earth, Digital
