I'm an easy-going, pensive guy who wants to break out of his shell a bit. Currently beardless. Better Profile Photos TBA.
What I’m doing with my life
I've recently retrained career-wise in IT, always new things to learn in the digital age. I intend to build my own PC over the summer months in my spare time.
Surviving amid the frequent tempests of Wellington.
I’m really good at
Pub Quizzes, I have an insane recollection of trivia both mundane and obscure. It comes from a lifetime soaking up information from books and the Internet.
Getting along with animals. Cats and Dogs are usually pleased to see me.
I can move about with eerie swiftness and stealth, maybe I should be a spy.
Apparently I'm a good cook. Masterchef is a guiltyish pleasure.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height. That and everyone thinks I'm English despite being a born and bred Kiwi.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
All tomes by Cormac McCarthy, Alan Moore and Iain (M) Banks. Stephen King. Michel Foucault. Slavoj Zizek. GrrM. Bill Bryson.
Sci-Fi and Historical fiction are way cool.
I'm enjoying Science Non-Fiction at the mo', books on Ecology in particular. We're probably doomed...maybe.
Anything by David Fincher, Christopher Nolan, the Coen Bros and Stanley Kubrick. Well-shot and cerebral. Classic eighties/nineties stuff like Indiana Jones and Jurassic Park are also great for the nostalgia. Also True Detective and awesome new TV series.
Rock, Industrial, Classical Music, Reggae, Eighties New Wave, Ballads...you name it!
The six things I could never do without
PC Trouble-shooting Guides
Books, books, glorious books
Frontal Lobe, hippocampus, medula etc
My Doc Martens
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whatever happens to cross my mind
On a typical Friday night I am
probably being less social than I should be. But its cold outside
and there are wolves about.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Woah, not too private, we've just met. I'll admit that I usually
faint at the sight of blood and needles and such. It's not that I'm
squeamish per se, but I do tend to keel over due to an overactive

You think my profile isn't too awkward, cheesy or off-putting. I try my damndest dagnabbit!
