I'm a mathematician and an all-purpose nerd. I enjoy my subject, scifi, comic books, board- & video games and think it's brilliant that this site lists C++ in its languages section!
I'm also into the goth, burlesque and bdsm/fetish scenes, which wasn't the main reason for my recent move, but it was certainly convenient.
I'm in a committed albeit polyamorous relationship, and am here looking for both new friends and maybe new partners if the right person comes along. Obviously, the latter can only happen if you're open to at least trying polyamory as well.
I have an award for "best painted army" from a wargaming tournament, so I'm at least competent at that. I'm also pretty decent at throwing a whip. I have a PhD in maths, though it feels like that had more to do with a series of lucky coincidences than any exceptional talent.
