My self-summary
I'm an ex-pat Brit living in Chicago. Although a Londoner at heart, Chicago has been fabulous. I have a quirky sense of humour and tend to find a silver lining in most situations. I love love love the culture here, the festivals, summer concerts, theatre and beach.
What I’m doing with my life
My work brought me to Chicago from England. I'm a scientist working on genetics in a local university. My love of puzzles means that my career is a pleasure rather than 'work' although I do work long hours.
I’m really good at
I am outgoing and network shamelessly, although I have some British reserve. I find humour in most situations, and love discussing current events. I can cook up a storm and enjoy entertaining my friends at home.
The first things people usually notice about me
In this country, my accent is usually the first thing people comment on, and that leads to questions about where I'm from....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favourite book so far is 'The Prophet' by Gibran. I like thought-provoking novels, like 'The Bookseller of Kabul', 'This Perfect World', 'Brick Lane', 'The God of Small Things' which question society and culture. I love all kinds of movies, including anything by Tarantino and many of the British offerings. When it comes to food, I love trying different cuisines, but especially love spicy food and sushi.
Six things I could never do without
Good friends and family, the Internet, culture, books, health, a stimulating career
