I work as a data analyst. I'm an explorer. Of data. I also like to
get intimate. With my data. But, you know, not too much. I don't
want to go over budget on a project.
What I’m doing with my life
Some things I do, in no particular order: playing guitar, walking/cycling/exploring; hanging out with friends/meeting new people; watching TV series, films, videos, listening to podcasts and music (new and old); reading (fiction, non-fiction books, blogs, Wikipedia, web comics, and other stuff); comedy (writing and doing stand-up); Khan Academy, Coursera and other online learning; and of course working (got to pay the rent...)
I’m really good at
Um, I guess I'm pretty good at academic subjects (especially
science, math, philosophy... anything analytic). I'm also
reasonable funny according to quite a few people.

Working, commuting home, doing something that requires minimal
I mean, um, partying hard?
