My self-summary
Hello, I'm Chris!

I'm really driven and want to get a lot out of life. I enjoy good company and try to surround myself with interesting people.

I'm an avid climber at an indoor wall in London and really enjoy it on many levels– it's healthy, it's social and I'm fairly competitive. I'm also a keen runner and have completed a few half marathons.

I play the guitar and have done since I was young. I love my acoustic and could spend hours messing around with it. I sometimes lose patience and get frustrated, but I'm only human.

I'm moderately studious. I studied computer science at uni and have buckets of enthusiasm for it. I always have hobby projects I want to work on or technical articles I'm in the middle of writing.

I work for myself as a programmer, bouncing between projects in Central London. It pays really well and in return, I work hard and want to do right by the people who hire me. I really care about what I do.

Despite craving good company, I struggle to make friends and live by myself. I'd like to meet new people. I strongly believe that life is for sharing.
What I’m doing with my life
Working too much, mostly. I want to reach a point where I can claim more of my time back to work on personal projects and generally do things I love, like climbing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I started collecting choose your own adventure books recently. I decided to take the rickety old bridge over a river and got unbelievably lucky!

I'm a fan of George Orwell. 1984 makes my heart race. I like dystopia and looking at the world through an unusually-shaped lense.

I occasionally enjoy the thrill of a horror film, alone, in the dark at 1am. Not really sure why. Masochism, perhaps!? Don't read into that.

I'm usually embarrassed about my music. It tends to be many years behind everyone else. I like The Temper Trap, RHCP, The Black Keys, Jack Johnson.

I will eat almost everything. Recently I've been trying to make healthy, nutritious meals but it's really difficult when you live on your own.
The six things I could never do without
Good company
An acoustic guitar
Something to climb
Bottomless curiosity
Climbing chalk
Fish and chips
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Computer Science... YEAHHHHHHHHHHHH
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually climbing. The atmosphere on Fridays is electric. Sometimes I'll stay around and socialise after work or meet other friends for a drink. Ashamedly, I occasionally decide to get a head start of chores. Yawn.
