My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
- I'm a transplant from England and feel very much at home in the Bay Area. Summer is very much my favourite season because, where I grew up, it rained so hard it would make your head bleed. (Visitors to the north of England are advised to bring a hat)

- I have a very successful career in the video games industry and I feel fortunate to have such a fun and rewarding job. Last year I began working at getting my own company off the ground to take the world by storm.

- Cooking, working out, martial arts, movies, reading, politics, soccer, travelling, hiking, camping and spending time with my friends are just some of the things I like to do and share with a significant other.

- My outlook on life is positive and optimistic and I'm trying to make the most of everything before my time is up.

- I was the quiet one who studied hard and saved up the troublemaking for adulthood. I have a mischievous streak running through me that usually has me acting responsibly irresponsible.

- At parties and gatherings you can be assured that I'll be the one loudly telling tall tales of my (mis)deeds as well as entertaining everyone with banter and sarcasm. In individual settings my humour tends to be dry and ironic.

- Words I try to live by: 'Be kind; everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle'.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In no particular order:
- Starting my own company

- Building gadgets and robots. Because.....why not?

- Planning my next adventure. I went on a solo road trip last year to the deserts of the south west (Joshua Tree, Grand Canyon, Death Valley etc) and have been well and truly bitten by the travel bug. I want to do it all again soon!

- Writing a scientific paper to prove MC Hammer was dead wrong and that, in fact you can indeed 'touch this' and also no matter how much you warp space using a gravitational field you can never get to 'hammer time' without obliterating yourself in the process and thus making it a pointless endeavour.

- In my rare moments of ennui I lament that I'm not a billionaire aristocrat who builds rockets.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Making video games! If you play games then there's a good chance you've played something I've worked on. Many of the titles from the teams I have led have hit number 1 in the charts across the world and won numerous awards.

- Cooking. I mostly cook Asian food but have been experimenting with South American cuisine lately. One day I'm going to get back to brewing beer again.

- Looking after my two cats, Wooster and Jeeves. I love my cats and anyone coming into my life should, at the very least, like cats.

- Hosting dinner parties; cooking for my friends, and supplying an ample amount of beer and wine, is one of my favourite things to do.

- Being the outrageous one at dinner parties. This is best explained in person. (Turns out California isn't very progressive when it comes to men wearing kilts after they've had a bit too much to drink)

- Remembering quirky trivia (ask me about the history of Mongolia if we meet)

- Breaking things and putting them back together before anyone notices. This has happened more times than necessary and not because I'm clumsy.

- Martial arts. I train as many times a week as possible. I love pushing my body and mind to the limit. Also, I get a kick out of telling people, 'I know Kung Fu'.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My accent - I'm British but have sometimes been mistaken for an Australian as I'm from Yorkshire.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

- Indian
- Thai
- Sushi
- Cajun
- Korean
- Persian
- Almost anything containing chocolate
- Truffle fries (can't get these into my face fast enough!)

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Family
- Friends
- Spicy food
- Working out
- Sunshine
- My cats
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- Manchester United; football (soccer) is my obsession

- What I'm going to cook next for my friends

- Where I want to travel to next. A road trip along the east coast seems very appealing at the moment.

- UK/US politics; I love a good heated discussion with people who have opposing view to my own.

- What I'm going to do in my next workout

- Quantum physics and general relativity; I want my very own TARDIS, even if I have to build the damn thing myself

- Teleportation; my efforts at building a teleporter have thus far resulted in an old shoe box covered with aluminium foil with the word 'Teleporter' written on it. It is my fondest dream to, one day, put something inside the box that will make it a functional teleporter.

- How to outwit my Past-self. Just the other day I got home after a hard day at work and went to my freezer to get an ice cream bar. Unfortunately my Past-self had found and devoured it some days earlier. That cunning bastard is always one step ahead of me....
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Fighting crime, saving the world or drinking wine. Sometimes all three at the same time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
- I crave chocolate most of the time.
- I sing in the shower
- I make up songs and sing them to my cats when doing stuff around the house
- Growing up I wanted to either make games, be a fighter pilot, be an astronaut or be a racing driver. I'm doing one of those jobs now and trained for two of the others.
- I sometimes have dreams that make me laugh so much I wake up. I guess it's the opposite of a nightmare.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- You prefer cake over death (VERY important, this one)
- You have a good sense of humour, see the funny side of life and possibly has a Phd in sarcasm
- You are not a Luddite (or at least you don't hate technology)
- You graduated from Hogwarts
- You don't need an *actual* partner in crime. While I suspect I would make a very good getaway driver, I draw the line at robbing (any more) banks
- You *do* need someone not afraid of spiders. I prefer to pick them up and put them outside to killing them though ( that a deal breaker?)
- You don't give a pair of fetted dingos kidneys about a Myers-Briggs rating (personally I think humans are far too complex to be summarised in four letters)

Are most of the following:
- Sassy with attitude (sassitude?)
- Quirky
- Intellectually curious
- Complicated
- The mother of dragons

Okay maybe not that last one. I suspect there are some serious psychological issues that come along with giving birth to dragons. I mean, have you seen Rosemary's Baby? She wasn't what you'd call emotionally stable. Okay so she was giving birth to the devil but I'd imagine a dragon would be enough to send anyone over the edge too.
