I enjoy and NEED good quality strong coffee. I've been known to get up at the crack of dawn to cycle to the beach for early morning ocean swims. Other interests include: themed costume parties, writing, playing guitar. In 5 words I'm creative, loyal, active, intellectual and organised.
You're pretty much guaranteed a conversation about some aspect of linguistics with me at some point. I'm a massive language nerd and learning new tongues comes pretty easily to me.
Warning: I tend to flip to and fro between topics of conversation like it's nobody's business because everything is interesting to me. It can sometimes be a bit of a roller coaster ride.
This year I discovered Body Pump (a weights class at the gym) and I love it. I like feeling strong! Plus it helps me in my other sport loves of swimming and running.
I work in advertising on the sell-side - if you don't know what that is just ask :) It's very interesting and keeps me on my toes. I'm not bored yet which means it's really challenging me for the moment.
Update: I'm planning a 'screen-free' holiday over Christmas. That means no iPhone, no Android, no tablet, no laptop, no TV. I figure kindle is allowed as it doesn't emit light.
