My self-summary
I like terrible jokes, over-thinking everything, learning about anything, dancing, and public speaking.

What I’m doing with my life
Law school, right now. Small projects on the side, but mostly just law school.

I'm volunteering at Youthlaw this year, which has been pretty interesting. Doing pro-bono legal work for the under 25s.

I also tend to dabble in things. I did stand-up gig last year, and I'm looking to do a bit of spoken word this year, and I keep thinking I should start podcasting again, and I'd like to take up dancing again...
I’m really good at
Words. Memory. Understanding complex systems. Public speaking. Noun phrases.

Dancing, kinda - I'm not naturally talented, but I went swing dancing weekly for about three or four years. Wouldn't mind doing some latin, sometime.

I'm bad at lists of things I'm good at, apparently.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height, I guess? I'm about 6'2".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't know, favourites don't say as much about us as we sometimes pretend.

I mean, I love the Wire, but the scene everyone loves where Bunk and McNulty are just saying varieties of 'fuck' annoys me for being too cute. The scene at the start of that episode, however, where they're moving the desk? One of my favourite scenes in any media.

So, some things I like, in no order, off the top of my head:
Joss Whedon's version of Much Ado About Nothing
The Hunger Games (movie)
the novels/short fiction of Annie Proulx
Wuthering Heights
Hardboiled crime fiction (particularly James M Cain and Dashiel Hammett)
Margaret Attwood
Brandon Sanderson
Mexican food
Indian food (there's, like, only one good Indian restaurant I've found in Melbourne, though, and it's in bloody Elsternwick)
Cajun food
Spoken word
Best of the 80s style tracks - (Wayward Son, Broken Wings, In the air tonight, etc)
The Transformers comic 'More Than Meets the Eye' (think traditional transformers, as if it were written by Tom Stoppard, and set mostly in a bar in a spaceship)

And probably a whole lot more besides. I like to be interested in things, so if I've seen it, I've got an in-depth over-long opinion on it.
Six things I could never do without
Coffee. My iPad. Stories. Sunshine. Dad jokes. Punctuation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The law, and how to use it to make changes I want in the world. Media/narrative of any kind.
What the best possible version of me would do right now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably reading law materials, to be honest. But I do head out with friends occasionally.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I cried a little last week while watching the tribute scene in the first Hunger Games movie. On my iPad. While I was at the KFC in the Crown Casino foodcourt.
You should message me if
You're actually open to the possibility of meeting in person. Cool if that's not your bag, but for me it's kind of the point.
The two of us
