My self-summary
Mmmm… Like many people I hate this part… It just seems that every time I put myself 'in a box' what i say doesnt quite fit and ends up sounding pretty cringeworthy. So instead of waxing lyrical about what I am and not, I'll just give a 'potted history' of what I have done/experienced and let that speak about who I am.

Broadly speaking I come from a hippy background, and while I love where I come from, have also had a pretty deep need to explore different things and to do so differently. Thinking about this, while seemingly not saying a whole heap about me, it kinda really does.

As far as my 'yoof' is concerned, like many I spent far too much time and energy chasing the next pub, club or messy night out both here and OS. At first I did it as a pimply teenage punk, and then a bit later as a pretty serious techno head (I used to much prefer the urban industrial type of techno to the earthy spiritual type). This was all a heap of fun, and wouldn't swap the experiences for anything, but it is something that doesn't really need to be relived it either.

After all these fun times I went back to uni and became a pretty diligent student for about ten years or so, studying a bit more art, cultural studies and languages etc. A large chunk of this time was spent studying OS which was amazing and interesting, and has definitely given me a bit of a skewed and idiosyncratic way of looking at the world. These days, I spend my time between teaching and making a bit of art, and am absolutely positive that its harder to mark exams than to write them!

So to complete this picture of myself in a 'spam can' I like to keep my life interesting and stay engaged with the world and what I do - I am pretty empathic and aware but stubborn and clear about my opinions - and as far as what I am looking for, I am just looking to have a beer and a chat with someone whose company I enjoy. If something happens after that, then we can talk about it then.
What I’m doing with my life
Dealing with some strange and sometimes interesting students, marking slapdash essays, and trying to work out how to make things despite the limitations of my workshop.
I’m really good at
… pass
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a gap between my two front teeth
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A bit of sci fi or contemporary fiction, but apart from work stuff, don't read too much these days.

I watch the odd arthouse/foreign movie and some of the big cable TV series. I saw 'Kwaidan' the other night for the first time since I was a kid and that was amazing, and got seriously into 'Vinyl' a few months ago. Mostly however, I watch doco after doco on anything ranging from ancient history to particle physics to yeti hunting.

These days its usually a bit of electronic/experimental music, with the ocasional smattering of nostalgia.

Lived in Japan for a bit and so have a soft spot for Japanese food, but apart form that anything is ok.
The six things I could never do without
Interesting things to look at,
good or at least unusual conversations
close fam, and maybe one or two friends,
my computer,
my studio,
and a sneaky beer or two.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to keep my life interesting over the next couple of decades
On a typical Friday night I am
Sometimes sprawled out on the couch watching a movie, sometimes out catching up with mates, and sometimes up bush.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
…. I have a strange fascination with ancient history
You should message me if
You feel like a chat.
