My self-summary
I'm intelligent, witty with a dry sense of humour and a geek.
I like adventure, travelling to new places and seeing and doing new things.
If we have some common interests then I can probably talk your ear off, but I've never been good at small talk.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an engineer at a well known software company here; I also work on some personal projects in my free time when I'm not going out.

At the moment, I have a few goals I like to work towards
- I want to learn to fly
- I want to visit each continent at least once and ideally each country within a few regions. New Zealand is planned for this winter
- I want to learn a new language, though I've never been particularly good at this
- At some point in my life I want to have something to do with space development and/or exploration

I try to keep in shape when I can, I walk most everywhere. I particularly like hiking, especially in mountainous terrain
I’m really good at
- According to my friends, I can sing, though I still need a beer or two before I'll do karaoke. Rock band though...
- I know tons of useless trivia on all sorts of random subjects, particularly anything science related
- Listening & thinking
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm always laughing
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Lord of the Rings, Dune, Ringworld, Uplift series, Wheel of Time, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (and a lot more, these are the just ones that instantly came to mind). Recommend me some good ones!

The Godfather, The Usual Suspects, Lethal Weapon, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, The Quest for the Holy Grail & Life of Brian, Spaceballs, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz

TV shows:
Mad Men, Blackadder, Flying Circus, Whose Line is it?, Family Guy, Futurama, HIMYM, Babylon 5, The Daily Show, Parks & Recreation, Rome, The Office, Burn Notice, Top Gear, Arrested Development, QI, etc

Classic rock mostly, so the Rolling Stones, Dire Straits, The Who, Queen, Chris deBurgh and others. Nightwish is a favourite. Some more recent music is pretty ok too, though it really depends on the song. I dislike rap and country in general, but there are some songs I do like.

Not a big fan of seafood (except lobster!). I love spicy foods, Indian in particular; Thai is also quite good. Interested in trying different cusines.
Six things I could never do without
In no particular order:
British Humor: sarcasm, irony, puns, pathos and satire
Quality TV & Movies
Friends & Family
Games, of all kinds. Board, card, computer, take your pick
The internet; without it I wouldn't be able to do what I do
I spend a lot of time thinking about
That usually depends on what I'm doing; or I think about what I'm doing
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I didn't meet my first girlfriend until I was 20
You should message me if
You like the geeky, intelligent type and you like what you read
The two of us
