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
Taking trips to China on literally a whim
Sharing my passion with others
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.

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.
