My self-summary
A nice semi-intelligent friendly guy here to have a nosey, entertain some quizzes and see what's going on...

I consider friends and family to be important, and try to see them all whenever possible. I love NZ and love to explore the countryside with road trips.
What I’m doing with my life
Spending waaaay too much time playing Factorio, like WAY too much.

I currently work as an underground utility surveyor, mostly working on the Ultrafast Broadband rollout. I previously worked as an International coordinator for a local University but left to take up a teaching job in Shanghai that sadly never eventuated. I've found a passion in international relations and Education. Sharing my passion with others and watching them be inspired is huge.

I've also spent a few years working in IT, and hospo/event management, so quite a mixed career but I love it. I also have a Uni education in Information Systems, and half of one in Geography before I took up a fellowship to study Chinese in Western China.

I have a passion for travel, especially China - 10 times, I think? I've been to other places in Asia, and the Pacific. Hoping to visit the US next.
I’m really good at
Procrastinating
Cooking
Taking trips to China on literally a whim
Sharing my passion with others
Photography
Making new mates
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Science mags, Wikipedia articles, News, that consumes most of my reading. I'll start with 1 tab on Wikipedia, and the next thing I know I've got 8 tabs open reading about who knows what. Currently it's the third voyage of James Cook.

Movies... fairly open just so long as it has got a good plot and isn't too cheesey. I like movies that make me laugh or make me think. I'm a bit of a Sci-fi fan.

Music I'm mainly a fain of rock, little bit of dub and other genres. Not a huge fan of dubstep. I used to work in hospo so got to see a lot of bands for free.

Food, glorious food! I love cooking, and baking, though I don't seem to do either often enough.
The six things I could never do without
I clearly haven't updated this in a long time as previously I had camera, phone, and iPod as separate items.

iPhone
Laptop
Passport
TV!
Great chat
and something else...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to get eighteen million dollars by the weekend.
On a typical Friday night I am
A Friday night varies a lot for me! I might be in Shanghai with a group of Friends, I might be behind the bar at a nightclub, I might be out with friends, road tripping, doing night photography or I could be at home with a movie/tv and popcorn.
You should message me if
You like what you see and you have something to talk about.
