My self-summary
I'm a post Grad student who also works in finance, with a vast array of interests, so the idea of a self-summary seems daunting to say the least. I love travelling, cooking, teaching, reading, and studying the stars; astrophysics is my thing. I'm new to all this jazz, so shoot me a message and we'll see where it goes.
What I’m doing with my life
Ph.D or bust.
I’m really good at
This is like when they ask you to name "your greatest weakness" in a job interview. Everybody eventually says, "oh I'm too focused on details," or "I find that I take a leadership role without being asked."

It's hard to say what I'm really good at. I've got a pretty present sense of humour and whit is extremely important, so I expect that out of the wonderful people in my life.

Languages, I have a passion for languages, and random facts. But not in the overwhelming, "did you know" way. More in the good-for-a-pub-trivia-team kinda way.
The first things people usually notice about me
Usually my height and my whit. I consider myself well spoken and funny, and hopefully so do others :/
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I adore Music. Music in all forms. Live concerts, Music festivals, private shows, any kind. I couldn't imagine the best parts of my life without the music that made it even better.

Films are a bit dicey. My favourite movie is one which most people find bizarre. It's the Silence of the Lambs. I don't know what it is but it has the perfect mix of suspense, drama, romance, and just plain old horror. Others which rank high include Inglorious Basterds, Shame, Waking Life, L'Invasions Barbare, The Godfather, Virgin Suicides, Motorcycle Diaries, Y Tu Mama Tambien. So many many more.

Zadie Smith's White Teeth definitely qualifies as my favourite book, but there are a million more. Faulkner, Fitzgerald, V.S. Naipaul, Holingshead, Rand (not for the philosophy), Bronte (Emily, not Charlotte), and Hawking are amongst my top buys. The list keeps growing with each recommendation

I love to cook and consider myself a pretty good cook. My tastes span the countries that I've been lucky enough to call home. Food has always been a big part of my cultural life, and I consider myself a bit of a foodie. I can't stand food snobbery though, it's an insult to good cuisine.
The six things I could never do without
My music, daily updates from the BBC, good wine, those I love. There, didn't even need six.
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends, could be at the bar with some friends, at home finishing up some work, or just unwinding from a long week. Whatever's going on, I'm in.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I hate clowns. Plain and simple they creep me the hell out. There, I said it.
