My self-summary
I'm still studying, still learning, and still trying to understand the world and what my place is in it. My days are spent developing ideas, following leads, and using what I know to solve weird problems. Outside of my head, I love riding bikes and wouldn't say no to going hiking.
What I’m doing with my life
Finishing off a PhD, riding bikes, and spending whole days baking.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm rather tall and I'm in possession of a slight lack of hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books wise, I read everything any everything, though my favorites would have to be KJ Parker, Roberto Bolano, Chirstopher Hitchens and....well, huge amounts of trash fiction as well.

My musical tastes have changed a bit recently, there's still a lot of stoner rock (Queens of the Stone Age) and dance leaning punk (DFA1979) in my playlists, but I'm also listening to Saul Williams, UNKLE, Zero 7 and Sia. More recently getting back into musicians like Ben Frost, DVP, Violent Soho and The Smith Street Band. Also enjoy trip hop, downtempo, house, along with weirder fare like Iannis Xenakis.

For tv, it has to be Sherlock. Beyond that House of Cards, Ray Donovan, Suits and occasionally Person of Interest. With regards to movies, I'm a sucker for Lord of the Rings, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and anything by Studio Ghibli. Though the movie I've watched the most times is probably the documentary The September Issue.
The six things I could never do without
Things to read, things to work on and think about, people to bounce jokes off.
On a typical Friday night I am
This box has been filled with things like "turning a 10m tree on a vacant lot into a giant christmas tree", "going to see Queens of the Stone Age and Nine Inch Nails play" and "turning my sisters work schedule into a mini opera."

But most Friday nights I end up with a book or a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't dance. A friend tried to teach me the basics at a wedding, she started off by showing me the box dance. You make the box by folding the sides up, then you press it all together. At that point, I hopped in the box and folded the lid on top of me.

Dancing done.
