I'm kind of in a transitional place right now, so it's hard to say anything concrete about myself. What this means, in essence, is that I've figured out that there's things about myself that I'm not overly fond of, so I'm taking steps to change them.
There is one immutable fact, that will hopefully be a selling point: I am a geek, as a previous foray into the mire of trash culture has apparently proven.
Now, I'm doing a double degree in Economics and Anthropology, just for something completely different.
In non-work terms, I get out an about on my bike when I can, partly for the health benefits (see the above bit about taking steps to improve my life) and partly because there are times where I can get lost in it, especially if I'm riding alone listening to music and letting go of the world.
I have developed something of an addiction to traveling around and seeing new things, to the point where I pretty much only have a job to finance my adventures.
I guess my secondary skill would be making things break in new and interesting ways.
I'll pretty much listen to anything, but mostly New Order, Ladytron and The Decemberists... with a little Bach and NWA just to keep things interesting.
I read a lot, mostly sci-fi. Some favourites are Neal Stephenson, Kurt Vonnegut, Sean Williams, Truman Capote, David Zindell for the prose and Warren Ellis, Brian Azzarello, Garth Ennis, Brian Wood for graphic novels (I won't get snippy if you call them comics). I also read a lot of pop economics (Freakonomics and the like) and recently finished The Omnivore's Dilemma.
I'm not too fussy about food, in fact, I'm quite lowbrow gastronomically. Olives, Mushrooms and Avocado are all things I have no time for, however.
I'll let you know when I find the last 3.
Oh, and I never learned how to drive, but I have a car and some fancy L Plates now!
