I'm here looking for new people to hang out with, and then to see what happens.
I'm originally from the north of England, and now work for the government (you've seen James Bond, right?) while doing a PhD and teaching about international politics. I've been doing quite a lot of media commentary both here and in the U.S. recently. I once made a mistake at work which was so bad that it got mentioned in The Guardian.
Earlier this year I spent three months living in America doing research (I also went to Disneyland) and I loved it there. I can't wait to go back, although I don't have any plans to at the moment.
If that all sounds rather serious (apart from Disneyland), I'm really not - I have a goofy sense of humour and don't really take anything seriously. I like nothing better than having drinks and joking around.
About a year ago I started doing quite a lot of exercise, much to the surprise of myself and my friends. I really enjoy it, something which I never thought would happen. My other favourite activity is the pub. There's probably some kind of balance there.
