I lived in Brighton, UK for five years. I left England for the winter, came to Australia to visit friends and stayed.
I’m a Software Engineer and work remotely from wherever takes my fancy, so long as it has an Internet connection. I typically have a stack of books that I’m trying to work through, and I’m always buying and starting new ones faster than I can finish the ones I already have.
Sports and training are a big part of my life. I’m into rock climbing, bouldering and strength training. I enjoy travelling to new places to climb and the interesting people you meet along the way.
I travel regularly, last year I went somewhere new every two out of three months on average. This year I’m looking to spend a little more time in one place.
I’m always trying to learn, fix or improve something at home or at work.
Right now I’m mostly interested in climbing around the world and would love to meet someone who’d like to join me on my travels.
Working for a software company I get to solve new problems every day and work with talented colleagues that challenge me.
Picking debate topics or recalling stories that go on for ages, without any meaningful conclusion.
Learning the rules to new games. I’m trying to get good at the boardgame Go. I love to spend an evening playing a couple of games and discussing the events of the week.
The Dark Knight, Inception, Interstellar – basically anything by Christopher Nolan. Up, The Social Network, 500 days of Summer, Primer.
House, Boston Legal, Grey’s Anatomy, Dr Who, Sherlock, Modern Family, House of Cards, Orange is the new Black, Archer, Game of Thrones.
Robyn, The Sounds, Dragonette, Daft Punk, Led Zeppelin, Madonna, Vampire Weekend, Shiny Toy Guns, CSS, Hans Zimmer.
Pizza and garlic bread. Really, really good fish, nowhere comes close to how good we can get it back home in Aberdeen, fresh caught and fried that day. I also love steak and Japanese wagu in particular when I can afford it.
• Something to play my music on and plenty of music to play
• Friends to enjoy the above with (FaceTime has been invaluable for keeping up with everyone back home)
Then what I’m going to do next, my next project, my next adventure, planning my next trip.
Training or already recovering from the training of the week prior.
