My self-summary
I'm a programmer who rides to work, loves hiking, music, creativity/art, fiction, debate (nay arguing), and working in my garden.
I have to admit I've carefully crafted my comfort zone over the years, but I've latterly become increasingly uncomfortable with comfort—so to speak. So bring on the new year!
What I’m doing with my life
(this space intentionally left blank)

Changing it up a bit. Hello okcupid! Below is my life in recent years, above is the future.

Bought a house with my partner in 2011, and have spent a lot of time in the last two years working on the garden. We have planted over two dozen fruit trees, numerous root vegies, an extensive herb garden and six seasonal vegetable garden beds. Installed rain-water tanks and replaced concrete and bricks with ornamental beds.

I am living with my long term partner of ten years, her boyfriend, and two cats.

I recently installed a projector and surround speakers downstairs, and movie nights are now a regular fixture with friends and partners.

My 9-to-5 is Web Development. That's application programming for the web, not "web design"; although I've done that as well in the past. I ride to work four days a week (A year back I decided to, you know, be social on Fridays) , and love to exercise in general with lunch time tennis, park soccer, jogging, garden/house work, hiking, whatever.

My favourite holidays usually involve multi-day hiking (2-9 days), the last of which was in Japan, but most often in NSW, Tasmania or New Zealand. Most of my pursuance of photography takes place on these holidays, and I love to get canvas prints of my favourite shots. Ask me for a link to my hiking photo gallery if you're interested.

I did my masters in Digital Media so I could explore creative endeavours. My unexpectedly favourite course was Sound Design (and Audio Production), but I did especially well in 3D modelling, and enjoyed 3D animation Video Production etc. I still enjoy creating digital art; vector art is a fav that has taken over from drawing, which I used to do a lot (and I miss it sometimes). Ultimately though, I find a good deal of creative fulfilment in my day job as a programmer, which is a double edged sword, because it doesn't leave much energy for art outside of work.

I'm partaking in the perpetual-book-in-progress form of writing a sci-fi novel, and I am generally interested in the process/art of writing and story telling.
The first things people usually notice about me
Really depends on the situation. If they are looking at okcupid they might say "long winded!" In person however, I've had: "long winded!", "you've got blue eyes!", "you're a funny [descriptive expletive]", "you're more interesting than reading a book".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies:
Children of Men (possibly my favourite), Fight Club, Gravity, The Hunter (the only movie to make me cry... in public no less)... many more

Shows:
Firefly/Serenity; anything Joss Whedon. Probably anything cancelled before its time. Stuff like Dexter, BSG (except for the ending), Community... just finished Breaking Bad (good to see a show end well!)
British TV does great light entertainment like QI and Mock the Week.

Music:
I always have to start with Metallica and Tool...
I'm listening to Florence and the Machine rather too loudly while I type this.
The last show I went to was Seth Sentry.
Rock with female vocals, um, rocks me. Skunk Anansie, Gossip, Deap Vally, Sleater-Kinney etc.
Music library stalwarts include: SOAD, The Offspring, Smashing Pumpkins, RATM, you get the picture.
I grew up listening to Mozart, Beethoven, Grieg/Schumann and the like, and I still love catching a symphony at the Opera House on occasion.

Books:
Incase it's not already obvious, I like science fiction. The rather intense and gory "The Gap Cycle" books by Stephen Donaldson started that love off in earnest, but I've loved many more. Series like Frank Herbert's Dune books, and stand-alones like "Beggars in Spain". I also read fantasy, and have made it through most of WoT (final three books pending), and "The Farseer Trilogy" by Robin Hobb, among others.
I enjoy non-fiction too. Favourites include "Future Eaters" by Tim Flannery, and "Guns, Germs and Steel" by Jared Diamond. I have a special like of "Sex at Dawn" by Chris Ryan.

Interwebs:
Ars Technica and io9 are my cover-to-cover reads.

Games:
I used to play PC games in a past life. Old school FPS mostly. These console FPS youngsters can get off my lawn! Mouse and keyboard 4eva! I still enjoy playing TF2 on the projector once in a great while.

Podcasts:
Hardcore History, Writing Excuses, Various RN programmes, Radio Lab, Tangentially Speaking, 99% Invisible, Freakanomics Radio... others

Food:
I'm very much an omnivore, and I'm as unfussy as you can get. However, I have an appreciation for fine cooking (and seek it out and partake on a regular basis) and especially fresh fruit and veg from my own garden. I have no problem eating vegan/vegetarian, even long term. I have a weak spot for lemon flavours, and find it hard to go past lemon sorbet at fancy gelatissimos.
The six things I could never do without
Exercise, music, and people worth talking to.
... and c'mon, food, water, shelter...?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Solving problems, fixing things and making things better. Stories and story telling. Also, honestly, women...
On a typical Friday night I am
Beer o' Clock with the work mates usually extends to dinner and occasionally something novel.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll "admit" almost anything to anyone given the chance... just ask.
