My self-summary
In this section I'm supposed to bedazzle you with my rapier wit, effortless charm, endless achievements, and good looks (as well as my progressive use of the Oxford comma). I will set expectations for you, the discerning reader; you will find none of the above. Consider yourself forewarned.

I grew up in a country town. Moved to Sydney for a physics degree. Relationship with physics is rocky at best; I prefer not to talk about it. I've been in the real world since 2012. Let's not talk about that either.

End boring autobiographical information.

I often find myself enthralled in the universe around me. If I was able to, I'm fairly certain I could lose myself in wonder for days at a time. I don't think many people notice that we live in a crazy, improbable universe. I'm fascinated by the smallest, most trivial things; all around you is a hive of impossible activity: the complicated biochemical pathway for photosynthesis, the craziness of the size of the universe and just how empty it really is, the manner that chaotic human behaviour somehow results in a society, everyday random interactions with people who are living their own lives who you will probably never see again, the seeming impossibility of consciousness, potentially how little of our actions are from rational conscious though.

Apparently I'm also incapable of communicating the concept of awe.

I feel most alive when I'm volunteering or walking outdoors.

I have had more than my fair share of existential crises. 0/5 stars would not buy from vendor again.

I love learning and self-improvement. This is part of the reason for volunteering; not only am I putting something into the community, I am getting something back. I attend my local Toast Masters club to try improve my public speaking. One day I would like to learn how to dance, even just to improve my horrific body language (I must say that I have the strangest body language).

[I'm not looking for anything serious at the moment. I'm quite interested in meeting people and having interesting conversations! Preferably over a drink, those are always the best interesting conversations.]
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently working as a sysadmin for a financial services company (yawn.) It's something that pays the bills and means that I can live in this horrifically expensive city. I'm trying to break into freelance programming, which is proving to be all sorts of difficult ...

What really drives me wanting to have a positive impact on this planet before I depart it. In my opinion this excludes a normal '9-to-5' grind job.

I volunteer for both the State Emergency Service (I haven't been for a while though, which is making me feel slightly guilty) as well as an organisation called Primary Ethics; nothing can possibly be scary after trying to explain abstract concepts to rowdy primary school aged children.

I would love to get more time in my life to volunteer.
I’m really good at
I'm an expert procrastinator.

I live for solving difficult problems. I love nothing more but to get lost in a problem for hours and only coming up for the necessities (trivial things like eating, sleeping etc).

I would like to be good at public speaking. To truly excel in this world you need to be excellent public speaker; simultaneously engaging while delivering concepts in an easily understood manner. [this is a work in progress]
The first things people usually notice about me
That I am remarkably unremarkable?

I count myself amongst the ranks of the vertically challenged. Such a terrible thing to be inflicted with in this height-ist world. The short will one day rise and claim our birthright!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favourite books include:
- Flowers for Algernon seriously fucked with my head. I was existentially ruined for days.

- Cosmos and Pale Blue Dot by Carl Sagan
- The Keys to the Kingdom series
- Lord of the Rings
- The Chronicles of Narnia (shut up; this is definitely childhood nostalgia talking)
- Anathem
- I've really enjoyed whatever Ursula Le Guin books I've managed to get my hands on
- I have every intention of joining the Pratchett universe at some point, but my procrastination has currently put an end to this (yes, I even procrastinate the things I enjoy!)

Favourite music:
- Sinking Inside Yourself by Hammock
- Coldplay
- Battleships
- No clear mind
- Powderfinger
- The Whitlams
- Electric President/Radical Face/whatever he feels like calling himself at the time.
- R.E.M.
- Crowded House
- The Presets
- Pnau
- and then an incredibly random assortment, some of which should never be spoken of in polite, self-respecting company
- I have been known to enjoy ABC Classical FM ...
- While editing this very profile I listened to Enya. Judge how you will.

Movies:
- Lord of the Rings
- Lost in Translation
- the first Matrix
- The Intouchables
- Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away, My Neighbour Totoro
- Philomena (I scored a pre-screening through ABC Radio National; thanks RN!)
- The Expedition to the End of the World: this is a truly excellent Danish documentary; mercilessly teased my extreme desolation desire.
