Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Looking for adventures, good times, and happy memories.
I'm passionate about building great things and always give the
things I do everything I've got. Sometimes this can make me come
off as intense. I like having fewer but very close friends --
despite the fact that I tend to spend a lot of time with people, I
value my close-knit relationships the most.
Not too sure if that gets any of my true personality across. These
things can be so filtered, and yet so difficult to write. If you
want to know anything else, get in touch! In the world of startup
ideas, we have this concept of failing fast. You can sit and
theorise all you want, but often if you don't give it a go you
don't know if it will work, and sometimes the fits you think are
unlikely turn out the best... And then if it doesn't work at least
you walk away quickly! So let's not mull over this too much. If you
like my profile or are on the fence, hit me up and we could go for
a quick drink and hit it off... or fail fast!

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I like to work on difficult problems and this is why I moved from
academia into entrepreneurship. I like to start and build
successful companies. I fully believe that we are all capable of
achieving great things and all it requires is a little spark and
focused attention. I'm a big believer in helping bring out the best
in people, and helping people see their greatest strengths. As our
own greatest critics I think this often goes silenced. I would like
to meet someone who would also like to do that for me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing, conversation, maths, science, pushups.
I am artistic. I like to sketch, and used to paint... And I'm a
mathematician, which is a lot like art:
"A mathematician, like a painter or poet, is a maker of patterns.
If his patterns are more permanent than theirs, it is because they
are made with ideas" - G H Hardy

I love fine dining. French cuisine is my favourite, but I like to
explore all sorts of cuisines. Food is about texture and subtlety
of flavour, with a lot of variation. I like each portion to leave
me almost wanting. But I also occasionally like takeaway in front
of the TV with a box set or Netflix, or the warmth of a homecooked

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

According to a friend who knows me well I really go for the
princesses (and I don't mean prima donnas).
At the end of the day I'm looking for someone to share stuff with,
have new experiences, and go on adventures!
