Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This is surprisingly hard to write. Will throw out random words and
explain how they relate to my life.
Ireland - Where I am from. As I am sure you'll have already guessed
this obviously means I live a life of drunken debauchery and am
Acting- Have recently taken this up as a hobby and love it.
Malawi- worked here for eight months teaching, in general I just
love to travel. Japan, India and Tanzania have been my favourite
places to visit, but love going anywhere.
Hiking - the best way to spend a summer weekend.
Scuba diving - my favourite thing to do when I'm near a warm
Cycling - this is how I get to work/ exercise
History and Political Science - (Its definitely a science don't
question it) I studied this for my undergrad. I have a nerdish love
of both history and political debate.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work as an economist on a government review of antibiotic
resistance working on how to increase the number of antibiotics and
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hitting the snooze button on my alarm. I'm like, almost a pro. I
can also cook the perfect rice, though am admittedly less good at
cooking things to eat with said rice.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am really not the best placed person to answer this question. In
London it's probably my Irish accent.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I think the best book I've read is On Ethics by Peter Singer.
Dawkin's the Selfish Gene is also excellent he's much better at
talking about evolution than he is about religion.
Fictions books Catcher in the Rye, to Kill a Mocking Bird and the
Color Purple all stand out. Its not actually fiction but Boy in the
River is also very good.
Shawshank Redemption, a Beautiful Mind, Dirty Dancing, Inception.
Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Twelve Angry Men, American History X and
Slumdog Millionaire all come to mind
The Globe is one of my favourite places in London, am yet to see a
play there that wasn't brilliant. I also love a good musical in the
West End. Really enjoy going to museums and some galleries.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Aeroplanes/trains/buses - How else would I go travelling.
2) Interesting people to talk to.
3) Friends and family.
4) Sleep. I unashamedly love sleeping
5) The internet, I need my fix of online articles and funny videos
6) A good place to swim, you really can't top a good swimming spot,
particularly when the water is warm, with a good view and sunset.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My mind wanders in the most random directions, I am not fully sure
there is an underlying theme.
Having said that I think a lot about how to reduce inequality and
prejudice in the world, and get nerdishly excited about most things
politics or economics.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Every weeks different, I like catching up with friends, hanging out
with my flat mates or going to the theatre.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Cycling Snowman isn't my real name!
