My self-summary
I enjoy long walks on the beach and dismantling patriarchy. Nobody has ever described me as laid-back .

In 2016 I bought books at such a rate that they were taller than me by February and I had to calculate my reading speed in inches per day.

Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment -- Rumi
What I’m doing with my life
By day, I make computers go beep. In the evenings I'm bootstrapping a fashion industry start-up. At weekends I'm usually seeing friends or working on the start up.

In my copious free time, I ballroom dance and sail.
I’m really good at
Getting kicked out of casinos for counting cards, fleeing civil wars in Africa, accidentally staying up talking to people until dawn, DIY wearable electronics, filthy words in beautiful copperplate, the multiple uses of knotting rope, using the phrase "info superhighway" in interviews with the BBC, perfecting hollandaise sauce, impromptu excursions at short notice, revolutionary knitting.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Authors: Iain Banks, Octavia Butler, David Foster Wallace, Lois McMaster Bujold.

Directors: Nadine Labaki, Marjane Satrapi.

Music: No-one cares too much about this, I hope, but anything from hardcore hip-hop to string quartet.

Food: making is better than eating (and is one of the best ways to show your affection for a friend or lover) - particular favourites are risotto, crème brûlée, and eggs Florentine. I also cook an incongruously incredible steak.

The six things I could never do without
Laptop, wallet, passport. Everything else is optional, and even the laptop is a convenience.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether the opposite of "the opposite of a great truth is also a great truth" is also a great truth.

Given that consciousness is a mechanism for making an individual act against its genetic imperative, what the genetic imperative for evolving consciousness was.

How odd it is to be trapped inside a machine for consciouness.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think that society has made a mess of every single aspect of sexuality.
You should message me if
يمكن أن تعلمني اللغة العربية ؟

Ladies and gentlefolk of a non-binary persuasion, it is 2016 and I am so bored of the "who messages first" sexist bullshit. Please just message me if you fancy me or think you might.

Gentlemen: hello to you too; I'm fine, thank you; my weekend was good, thank you. Proceed at your leisure.
