Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Beer and ice cream is the underrated combination of our time.
I am half american and half british. Despite having lived in the UK
since I was born, I’ve retained a fairly strong american accent
from my mother. I spent my formative years in Scotland, before
moving to London to embark upon my career as a Software Developer.
I’ve been living and working here for two years now. The city has
left its mark on me, and I would say I’ve become far more ambitious
and career focused.
I’m blessed/cursed with a somewhat impulsive personality which
makes my day to day adventures more entertaining, but has also
leads to a small amount of embarrassment from time to time….Trust
me you’ll find it endearing. I also have a rather acerbic sense of
humor, which is wonderful except for when it’s combined with my
loud indoor speaking voice. One example: after watching Twilight at
the cinema, I got told off for observing that it was like a
softcore porno without the sex. Oh well.
Disclaimer: as you might expect given my job title, I do enjoy some
nerdy activities like board games and programming, I’ve rounded
this off with some more marketable hobbies like cooking, golf and
playing guitar. I love live entertainment of all kinds (whatever
appears in Time Out I’m afraid). I’d also consider myself to be a
foodie and I’m very slowly picking up the knowledge of a second
rate wine and whiskey connoisseur.

interest in gambling, but it's an industry that provides
interesting technical challenges and I'm in an environment where
I'm constantly learning.
In the future I'd like to work more independently, either through
my own products or selling my services as a contractor.
