My self-summary
My bio could make me sound like a skittish dilettante who bounces from one pursuit to another every couple of years. I prefer to think of it as a rich tapestry. I first wanted to make it as an artist, but I was (to put it bluntly) shit. I made a much better musician, although that had to give way when I left Australia to pursue writing ambitions. In the meantime I managed to get a proper degree and worked as a lawyer for years, before also deciding to chuck that in to study post-grad history and politics in London. Now 34, I've just started a new career in public policy, which I am very happy about. Assuming I'm not struck by a sudden compulsion to join Cirque du Soleil, this will be it. Fortunately, I am much more loyal to people than I am to vocations.
What I’m doing with my life
Just returned home after four years in Europe. Working. Looking at properties I can't afford. Learning languages.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to decline Russian nouns. Rest assured I will never talk to you about it. If I do, it means that I'm deliberately sabotaging the date.
You should message me if
I put 99 as my upper age limit. Before you centurions accuse me of being ageist, you should know that the range doesn't go higher.
