My self-summary
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 better.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Concision
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a working class saff-east/kentish accent, which surprises people apparently.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The full list is ridiculous, I will just put down recent fascinating things I have experienced. The Ape and the Sushi Master by Frans De Waal. Lords of Light by Zelazny. Castaway on the Moon. Sex Criminals. Rat Queens.

Favourite things of all time. Imajica by Clive Barker. Promethea by Alan Moore. Goonies. Almost Famous. I really love Idries Shah's writing and Cordwainer Smith's.

Favourite Passionate Clinch:
Daniel Day-Lewis and Madeline Stowe in Last of the Mohicans.
Mmm, dat clinch.

Poor quality clip if you haven't seen it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fN24OMtqapM

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 good.

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 others.

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.
