Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was once bitten by a monkey. It was not my fault cause it
quite an aggressive monkey. But then, pretty much most monkeys are.
Monkeys like to eat. I like to eat, and I prefer to eat with
kind of utensil, although if I had a tail that would be real
when I'm stuffing my face.
I was struck dumb by the travel bug a decade ago and ran away
Brussels, San Francisco, and Berlin. Now I've come back and I
pleased to say that Melbourne stacks up quite well. I feel
qualified to say this because I'm a city-junkie. Given a
between stumbling through the cobble-stone streets of a
chaotic city or hiking through a bland vista of trees, I'll
the city any day. I am easily awed by architecture such as the
Modern, or the Haglia-Sofia, but my current favorite is
Seattle Public Library.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I mess around with computers and biologists.
I have a regular meditation practice and I feel like I'm getting
better at steadying the ship.
I aim to learn half the songs off the first Flight of the Conchords
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making you laugh but only if you are the kind of laaadee who likes
to see a grown man pantomime a monkey in the middle of a full tram.
I play a mean acoustic guitar.

I smile a lot. Because I am sad. So sad. Boo hoo. boohoo. hoo hoo.
Like I was somebody's walking punchline.

I love books. I really do. I was the kid who hid in the library
during lunch-time to read. Although recently, I got all minimalist,
downsized my collection, and loaded up on ebooks. It's less
romantic but more convenient. I now carry whole libraries in my
pocket. Last year, my favorite was Hilary Mantel's "Wolf Hall". I
loved "Game of Thrones" the HBO TV series, but the book was kind of
meh. I wished Hilary Mantel had written it instead.
Some films I love: "Before Sunset". A bitter Ethan Hawke and Julie
Delpy in their 30's is better than a naive Ethan Hawke and Julie
Delpy in their 20's. No one does transcendental better than Terence
Malik's "The Thin Red Line". Jury is out on "Tree of Life"
I just got the St. Vincent album and omigosh, Annie Clark is
technique++, mesmerizing to watch her play, her guitar held
appropriately in prog-rock position. Dustin O'Halloran with his
piano-twinkling. Flight of the Conchords. Keren Ann (pre-English).
Tori Amos (pre-fairy-land).
Szechuan food that destroys all feeling in your mouth. Ceviche is
magic. Things noodley: pastas, pho, ramen, or cantonese egg
I also like long-form improv.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Lately, I've been reading tons on languages, especially how the
phonetic alphabet snuck up on the ancient Greeks.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
surprisingly often I camp out in a late-night cafe reading a book.

I like some musical theater. Also, I occasionally read physics
