My self-summary
This is surprisingly hard to write. Will throw out random words and explain how they relate to my life.

Ireland - Where I am from. As I am sure you'll have already guessed this obviously means I live a life of drunken debauchery and am insanely religious.

Acting- Have recently taken this up as a hobby and love it.

Malawi- worked here for eight months teaching, in general I just love to travel. Japan, India and Tanzania have been my favourite places to visit, but love going anywhere.

Hiking - the best way to spend a summer weekend.

Scuba diving - my favourite thing to do when I'm near a warm sea.

Cycling - this is how I get to work/ exercise

History and Political Science - (Its definitely a science don't question it) I studied this for my undergrad. I have a nerdish love of both history and political debate.
What I’m doing with my life
I work on a government project to stop drug resistant infections... I'm basically like a modern day superhero!
I’m really good at
Hitting the snooze button on my alarm.

Making mischievous, I love causing trouble, in a fun way.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am really not the best placed person to answer this question. In London it's probably my Irish accent.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I think the best book I've read is On Ethics by Peter Singer. Dawkin's the Selfish Gene is also excellent he's much better at talking about evolution than he is about religion.

Fictions books Catcher in the Rye, to Kill a Mocking Bird and the Color Purple all stand out. Its not actually fiction but Boy in the River is also very good.

A Beautiful Mind, Dirty Dancing, Inception. Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Twelve Angry Men, American History X and Slumdog Millionaire all come to mind

The Globe is one of my favourite places in London, am yet to see a play there that wasn't brilliant. I also love a good musical in the West End. Really enjoy going to museums and some galleries.
The six things I could never do without
1) Aeroplanes/trains/buses - How else would I go travelling.
2) books
3) Interesting people to talk to.
4) Friends and family.
5) The internet, I need my fix of online articles and funny videos of cats
6) A good place to swim, you really can't top a good swimming spot, particularly when the water is warm, with a good view and sunset.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What prison skill I'd have. I feel like to survive in prison you need a useful skill that you can trade. In Shawshank Redemption he can do people's taxes, Prison brake he's an architect, Wolfe of Wall St he can sell. I could try to find economic ways to help the prison improve its performance... Not sure it will work.

I think a lot about the horrible injustice in the world and how to reform it. I'm passionate about ending inequality, be it caused by race, socio-economic status, or disability.
On a typical Friday night I am
Every weeks different, I like catching up with friends, hanging out with my flat mates, getting out of London or going to the theatre.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Cycling Snowman isn't my real name!
You should message me if
You're the kind of person who loves to stay up late with a bottle of wine discussing how, to make the world better. Or there's something you're really passionate about.

Or you feel like it... I'm not really that picky!
