I arrived here recently from the UK. Im good at things I enjoy (sport and games), and bad at things I don't (organizational skills). I like new challenges/adventures and generally live in search of a new story. I am driven, sarcastic, competitive, and addicted to finding ways to have fun. I love my job because it is constantly fascinating and I think (optimistically) that it might have the potential to make a difference one day. Most importantly, I live to maximize highs rather than minimizing lows. I hate pointless social norms. I hate superficial relationships, but once I have made a connection with someone, I am all about my real friends.

On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to find the perfect balance between two of the classic
british steriotypes (drinking hard and dancing badly).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There is literally (and i do mean literally literally, not the
slang version that means exctly the opposite of literally) nothing
that I am too private to admit.
