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.
Acting- Have recently taken this up as a hobby and love it.
Malawi- Lived 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.
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.
Really good at having random conversations and making up stories. I
can also cook the perfect rise, though am admittedly less good at
cooking things to eat with the 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

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.
I quite like any movie that makes me think or is funny. Shawshank
Redemption, a Beautiful Mind, Twelve Angry Men, American History, X
Slumdog Millionair 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 honestly not
sure if there is an underlying theme
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There should be nothing typical about a Friday night. Though I must
admit I recently moved to a job with a subsidesed bar that's only
open on Fridays so many nights start there. Always happy to have a
night out or stay in with friends/ flatmates.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I was 10 I accidentally broke my sister's doll house, but shhh
my family still doesn't know it was me.
