I wear glasses which occasionally leads people to think i know
things. This is false.
Aside from that, I've lived in west london for two years now, I
ride a bike with red wheels, play guitar in my spare time, and when
I was 14, I accidentally set fire to a forest. Oh, I also have a
full sized poster from the movie 'The Princess Bride' framed on my
wall. If you've never seen The Princess Bride, look it up before
you judge me. Then feel free to judge me.
What I’m doing with my life

I had a brief foray in management consultancy before I realised

get along. if not, we'll probably still get along just fine
regardless. It helps if you don't mind grown men who can quote
Zoolander in its entirety.
I get really emotionally invested in the Discovery Channel. How
It's Made is possibly one of the most undervalued programs on TV.
Air crash investigation too. And as for Wonders of the Solar
System... I might have a man-crush on Brian Cox's brain. Which is
The six things I could never do without
- spelling things correctly.
- punctuating things correctly.
- my collection of
- The outdoors. Indoors can get a bit dull. (This includes the
- My camera.
- Party rings.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether I can justify getting a puppy if I live in the middle of

I've already admitted that I set fire to a forest, and that I have
a poster from a children's movie on my wall. Evidently i'm not
against sharing things that should remain private.
