I'm pretty active: I love trail running, crossfit, triathlons - the participating as well as the de-briefing. There's nothing as rewarding as post run/event beers, is there?!
Values I think are important: curiosity, humility, kindness
Good conversation makes my world go round. Throw in a few laughs and I'm sold.
Or I could just give you a list of stuff I like to do: cooking, having interesting conversations with smart and fun people, and drinking good wine make me happy.
I've got a few trips (Fiji, NZ, Hong Kong) lined up that I'm looking forward to.
Other things that give me joy include: mushrooms cooked in lots of butter, early morning trail runs, riding my bike on a fresh cool and sunny Spring morning and seeing politicians give clear answers to important questions. I'm still waiting on that last one.
Finding new athletic adventures and challenges.
Knowing a bit about a lot of things.
From all accounts, baking Monte Carlos.
Movies & shows: I'm rubbish at watching scary movies. Some tv: Adam Hills, Borgen, The West Wing, 30 Rock, House of Cards. Although Season 4 went off the rails a bit, didn't it?
Music: Spotify is possibly the greatest invention ever - current favourites include Flume, Wafia, Broods, Run the Jewels, Vera Blue. Old favourites include PJ Harvey, Paul Simon, Dire Straits. Aussie hip hop and Triple J to mix it up. Trashy pop is a guilty secret - only when I'm (road) running though ;-)
Am addicted to Tim Ferriss podcasts and Brian Mackenzie is a freaking legend.
Food: I like to cook, particularly euro style and am also very grateful for Melbourne's awesome Asian/ Mex/ Euro/ whatever else is cool style and variety. I usually eat pretty well (real food, sometimes lchf) cause I feel better for it, but also like to indulge occasionally. Or more than occasionally. Just not all the time :-)
Friends and family - what life is all about
A dining table big enough to read the newspaper on. Not happy about change to tabloid style there The Age, I went out and got a big table especially
Passport - nothing more exciting than gearing up for an overseas trip
Sunshine and a perfect blue sky. It just makes me feel good, especially in winter
Exercise and being active - keeps me sane and I love the sense of achievement I get from lifting heavy stuff, moving fast and seeing amazing places.
- What should I plant in the pots on my balcony (apart from weeds).
- Why Malcolm Turnbull has disappointed so many people.
- If Dangerwood is going to win the Cats the flag (maybe in 2017).
- How many more refugees we should take.
- Whether my online profile is the right mix of funny and smart and really reflects my unique and amazing personality.
- If anyone really takes these things seriously.
- Whether chocolate almonds are better than chocolate covered raspberries (yes, but raspberries are also awesome).
I'm INTP so I spend a lot of time thinking...this list could be a long one.
If you're witty, smart, humble and an all round nice guy
If you're prepared to see the funny side, especially about yourself
If you think I sound kind of awesome ;-)
If you have something more to say than 'hi'
