Outside of work I love going out to socialize with my friends, but I can still be fairly partial to a night in with the housemates. I'm a big fan of the cinema but I'd really like to get back into seeing some live music more regularly, so if you know any good gigs let me know.
I'm a regular at the gym and I also do some running and climbing to keep myself in shape. Just completed my second half marathon and apparently they don't get any easier.
As you can guess by my profile pic I love skiing oh so very much I came late to it so I've got some catching up to do and try to go once a year.
Spouting random facts I learnt in the middle of a conversation and therefore going completely off topic. It does come in useful for pub quizzes though.
Plus covering my eyes in photos, with either glasses or just by shutting them. Never really been a problem before but it made setting up this profile more challenging than it should be.

Best gig I've seen in years was Melt yourself down at the deaf institute. The worst sadly was Bob Dylan, nearly ruined his music for me.
You can't go far wrong with a good sense of humour though.
