My self-summary
Follow this recipe:

Grab a Computer Science graduate from your pantry. Now remove the pocket protector, glasses and unkempt hair.

Add in a giant love of board games! Board games, board games! :D

Add a pinch of personality that enjoys an intimate conversation (as opposed to having voices drowned out within a mob).

Subtract rural living (I was disillusioned by a childhood experience where I was the only child of my age within a radius of 10 miles), which leaves a big-city person.

Spice things up with the colour purple (I like this colour).

Excuse my British spelling, that's how I write, right?

Stir this concoction well.

And you get me.

Serves One.
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a Platform Engineer at a Media company.

(What's a Platform Engineer, you ask?

Imagine I'm a blacksmith. I take the red-hot product straight from the forge with rough faces and sharp corners and turn it into a smoothly running system.

I'm the one responsible for "Main Screen Turn On".)

It's fun.
I’m really good at
Board games. Teaching board games : I have written testimonials from people about how well I teach 'em! (on meetup.com) :)

Computer stuff

Random stuff.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I used to read a lot of fiction, but these days I find myself gravitating towards non-fiction. However, some authors, in no particular order include: Khalil Gibran, Issac Asimov, J R R Tolkien.

I listen to all genres of music, but last.fm informs me that my most listened to artists are Kate Bush and Live - though I seem to listen to more electronica of late.

I love food, of all types and cuisines. I do prefer my food to have a little zing to it, but I dislike heat for the sake of making the food hotter; it should add some flavour to the food.

I prefer salty to sweet unless it's chocolate. And in the event of chocolate, the darker the better!

Board Games
I LOVE board games. While I prefer cooperative games over competitive ones, I play them all! Examples of board games include: 7 Wonders, Race for the Galaxy, Pandemic, Settlers of Catan.

Computer Games
I enjoy playing computer games, too. I play League of Legends (currently platinum in solo queue); and Civilization V. I also enjoy point and click adventure games. I also own a PSP Vita for on the go gaming.
The six things I could never do without
The stuff in Maslow's pyramid, but barring the obvious (electricity, internet, computer, shelter, hot water, food), nothing I can't do without.

But yeah, I do like things like fountain pens...
On a typical Friday night I am
Learning Japanese. I can write Hiragana and kinda speak it a bit, I need to perfect Katakana. I know a handful of Kanji, but I hope to learn more as time progresses!

本当に!ちょっと だけ。
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was on the NY Post in August last year for this thing they were doing - only one person (a coworker) recognised me from the article.
You should message me if
- You want to have a fun, fun time playing board games. (Don't think boring, stodgy stuff like Monopoly. No, this is the good stuff) (I know this really nice cafe where we could play)
- You want to visit a museum or art gallery
- You want to just hang out and have fun: I'm fun to talk to!
