Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to think I have a healthy disregard for the impossible. I
love solving problems, saying something is impossible just means
it's going to be all the more satisfying when it's possible.
I love to know how things work, from big things, like how the
universe works, to something simple as why clocks tick. Wikipedia,
tvtropes and other information repositories tend to be like crack
to me. I've often ended up going to bed at 8am thanks to getting
lost trying to absorb every piece of information I can find.
I have a strong computers and technology bent, you'll find that my
apartment is full of various gadgets and computers often in various
stages of being dismantled. I've been into technology since a young
age, my parents encouraged my tinkering despite the large number of
household appliances which never ended up quite working properly
after I'd gotten hold of them.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently a Software Engineer at Google in Sydney. I'm
currently working on the Google Chrome web browser, but have
previously worked in a number of other areas including Maps and
Ads. The biggest positive is working with so many interesting
people. Google is pretty much as great as people think, I can't
think of anywhere else I'd prefer to work.
I'm originally from Adelaide which I moved away from 5 years ago. I
moved to Sydney because I wanted to live in a bigger city which is
more vibrant and full of life, oh and somewhere you can order pizza
after 9pm! I've travelled to many places in the world and I can't
think of anywhere else I'd rather live.
I've been luckily enough to travelled all over the world. I've
travelled both for work and pleasure. Places include all over
Europe, from Ireland to Turkey, many places in North America and a
couple of places in Asia. I'd love to see South America and south
part of Africa eventually too.
I've been lucky enough to have a great job, become financially
independent and live in a great city. Recently I've been working on
trying to lose weight and been branching out and trying different
hobbies lately. The part of my life that is missing is someone to
share it with!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Taking things apart, not so much at putting them back together.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I often sport a rugged rusty coloured beard despite my hair not
being even red the slightest, something I've always found
confusing. I guess comes from my Irish roots.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I'm a sucker for anything science fiction related especially when
vast space empires and involved. It doesn't matter if that be
computer games, novels or TV series. While I do pretend to be a
science fiction snob, preferring harder science fiction, I secretly
enjoy fantasy in space too.

, Frank Herbert
Favorite movies: Sin
, Vanillia Sky
Favorite TV Series:
Sci Fi: Stargate
(I'm more into British
humour, but do enjoy the occasional American comedy, 30 Rock
Favourite food: Cheesecake.
Board games: Space Alert, Pandemic, Red Dragon Inn 2 (only if I can
be Gog) and Ticket to Ride.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I have a regular group of friends from work that play board games
together, watch movies and generally geek out on Fridays. We are
always looking for new, interesting and unusual games that we
haven't played before.
A couple times a month I also help out by hosting a number of local
computer user groups such as the Sydney Linux User group. We have a
few talks and then head to the pub to socialise afterwards.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a soft toy collection (mostly of giant microbes).
