Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Bizarre mix of introspective creative and outspoken geek.
I love ideas and machines - from doing all my own car maintenance
to hacking multiple lights into my room's socket and hanging them
around the room like zoned octopus legs.
Keen observer of humans and the built environment - I'll notice
minor details like if the sides of your non-round scotch glass are
Even though I start slow, I ramp up intensity over time if I warm
to things. I dig and thrive off people with drive. Americans know
what's up in this department - and with a bit of luck I'll be in SF
soon, so also keen to make some American Mates.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Slowly putting together a tech startup.
Meanwhile, I'm shooting corporates, writing tech documentation,
crewing music videos, writing code and doing other strange things
to pay the bills.
I've started successfully promoting new tech startups for fun. That
one's for the love though.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Fixing things, problem solving and sketching out battle plans. I
also make a mean chilli beef jerky and reasonable homebrew.
Writing (former journo). It's not what you think: I spend too much
time wondering about how sentence structure and sentiment are
expressed in text. Then I remember that people are used to tweets
and try to stop worrying.
I'm good at being an entertaining drinker who becomes progressively
more fun before turning belligerent after ≈20 drinks and calling it
a night after ≈25.
I'll be going for my snowboarding instructor qualification before
the end of the year - I'm now flying without fear and landing

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Items that pad lists
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Architecture, urban planning, real world applications of code, the
art and science of film and video, statistics, design, the sad
regression of politics, philosophy, linguistics, industrial design
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
In no particular order:
House party somewhere
Driving down to the snow
Masterminding (or attempting to mastermind) some new project.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
On the internet? I'll admit nothing.
