Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello. I write science-fiction and I perform improvised comedy. I
like telling stories and learning how people work.
For fun I like going to places like the Science Museum, Tate
Britain. All the galleries and museums, especially their late
events. I love playing boardgames (Ghost Stories, Small World),
roleplaying (both kinds) and stuff like that. Would be good to meet
a woman who is into that and other stuff so we can introduce each
other to cool new things. Last year I went to the Great British
Tattoo Show which was cool.
If you want a conversational hook to put in a message I have
studied Astrophysics and English and I love Norse myth.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Getting my writing/performing to be my main thing. It's hard work
but I want to make art about vulnerability and change, so I'm
willing to put the hours in to make it happen.
Been learning Korean since Xmas! 한국어흥미있어요.
I did a week-long clown workshop with Spymonkey recently which was
brilliant. Being in the shit the whole week. Fail again. Fail
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Mmm, dat clinch.
Poor quality clip if you haven't seen it:
Music-wise I grew up listening to heavy metal, Devin Townsend and
Opeth. Listen to everything now. I love the soundtrack to O Brother
Where Art Thou. Tori Amos, They Might Be Giants, Arethra Franklin,
Detroit Emeralds, RIlo Kiley, Neko Case, Ravi Shankar. All
I consume a lot of media and love talking about it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Empathy and fun.
If you want to know where my antenna are focussed then see Brene
Brown's TED talk on vulnerability.
Also I dig Mr Rogers. My role models are him, Bill Hicks and Sam
Beckett from Quantum Leap.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Improvising. I'm obsessed. Even when I work on other things I keep
thinking about running classes and doing shows.
I am an improv geek I will talk about it a lot if you let me.
Also Non-Violent Communication, I have been using that for about 5
years. It's fundamental to how I see the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Come on, there isn't one.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I volunteered with the Samaritans for a bit, that and other
experiences put me in very intimate conversations that influenced
how I see people. I saw the strength in people even through pain
and how we can all be more supportive of ourselves and
So I realised that life is incredibly fun compared to the hard
parts. And all the work I do seems to come down to Love. The active
and muscular kind of Love that is funny and stupid and human.
