My self-summary
Hi, I'm Tom.

I'm a physicist turned entrepreneur who likes...

Actually, the quickest way of getting to know me is by looking at all my likes and dislikes: Will We Get Along - tomblah.

That should give you a fairly good impression of me and whether we're likely to bond over any mutual passions or peeves....
What I’m doing with my life
I currently build iOS apps. In spare time I'm building a tech business. I'm building an app that makes it easier to break the ice when networking.

I used to do physics at the Australian National University (quantum atom optics). I miss it and will probably return someday.

I also run a 60s psychedelic internet radio station: Technicolor Web Of Sound. Has 60s period advertisements and everything :)
I’m really good at
Cultural references.

I'm forever saying things like "that's like in that episode of Community where Abed said...".

Being meta.

Making people laugh.

Physics.
The first things people usually notice about me
My orange, Cheshire Cat grin.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Pretty much all of my interests are on here: Will We Get Along - tomblah.

Except food. And music.

I don't judge food or music tastes. I'll love you despite what you eat or listen to. Unless it's meatloaf. Or bread. Or black-eyed peas. Or bananarama...
The six things I could never do without
* Thinking time.

* Being intellectually humbled by people smarter than me.

* Cycling...I especially enjoy long distance rides between cities...very liberating :)

* 60s music.

* Heaters in winter, air con in summer.

* Hildegard von Bingen.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How best to do something, no matter how insane.
On a typical Friday night I am
Thinking and socializing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a strong cliche / idealistic streak just below the surface. It makes me almost cry at the end of every West Wing episode.
You should message me if
If something I've mentioned struck a chord with you, message me, and we'll have a fun chat :).

If you're a scientist or a scientist at heart message me!
