My self-summary
A biology graduate who spends his spare time doing creative things like writing, drawing and putting on plays. This mix of science and creativity pretty much sums me up.
I like watching nature documentaries but I also love going to the cinema/theatre.
Part of me wants to be the next David Attenborough, the other wants to write movies.
[EDIT: I am now working in science communication, so I am on track for one of these things.]

I also act (as well as every other possible theatre role) and enjoy that immensely, along with reading.

If this is kinda vague, message me for a less rambly conversation.
What I’m doing with my life
Working at the Centre for Life and being paid to set things on fire, look after animals and talk to people about space.
I promise it is a real job!
I’m really good at
Thinking of an idea for a story, plotting it all out, writing about a quarter of it.... and having an idea for something else!

Putting way too much thought into what I name my characters.

Having gravity-defying hair.
The first things people usually notice about me
At any given moment, the chance that my hair is doing something ridiculous (and often amazing) is close to 100%.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some of my favourite movies include The Prestige, O Brother Where Art Thou? and Iron Man. I like most genres from drama to comedy to horror as long as there's an interesting plot and engaging characters.

My favourite TV show is Lost. Say what you like about it being confusing and convoluted, I think it's brilliant! Other shows I like include Dexter, Game of Thrones, Stranger Things and House.
On the comedy side of things I like How I Met Your Mother, Peep Show, It's Always Sunny in Philadelpia and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

The Passage by Justin Cronin is an amazing epic and I totally recommend it. Other books I like include The Fault in our Stars, The Great Gatsby and most Sherlock Holmes stories.

Also love going to see plays: The Woman in Black, Les Miserables, RSCs Henry IV and Avenue Q are all great shows.
Hamilton is life. I am counting down the days till I see it in London in 2018...
Six things I could never do without

A good book

Pen and paper (for writing or drawing)

Obscure trivia

Friends, family, vague acquaintances, the people you see around town all the time and don't know but recognise and probably have a nickname for...

My glasses! (Damn you shortsightedness!)
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing *something* with friends. In playing games, out in a bar, at the cinema, it varies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If one were to look through my ebay history at all the props and costumes I've bought for plays, you'd likely think I was opening some kind of illegal back-alley doctor's surgery.
You should message me if
- You'd like to know more about me, to talk about the films, books etc I like, or to recommend some that you like.
- Or if you're a creative type and want to bounce ideas around. I always get good ideas when talking about them with other people.
- Or for any other reasons you have. I like talking to people about things that entertain, so feel free to start a converation.
The two of us
