My self-summary
British. Recently moved to California from London, working at a university.
What I’m doing with my life
Moved to California after finishing my PhD in London. Exploring the area, and enjoying freedom from thesis.

Enjoy visiting new places, learning about culture and seeing historical stuff (often also get excited about the food.) Recently enjoyed Myanmar, Vietnam and South Africa. Also spent a lot of time in China.

Like to try and be active - enjoy running and the gym (although not taking it all that seriously...)
I’m really good at
Writing stuff, I guess.
The first things people usually notice about me
Height - never gets tiring repeatedly hearing about this!

Also, recently people struggle to understand my accent.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: John le Carre, trashy and less trashy thrillers, biographies, history books. Work stuff.

Movies and TV: Apocalypse Now, various other war films, Bond. House of Cards, the Americans. Documentaries. Sarcy dry or satirical comedy like the Thick of It, Veep, Peepshow, UK and US Office.

Music: Radiohead, the Horrors, My Bloody Valentine, shoegazey stuff, the Smiths, the National.

Food: Pretty open minded - some favourites: Chinese, dim sum, Japanese, Korean and Italian.
Six things I could never do without
- Good friends (cop-out!)
- Spotify
- Books/paper
- Passport
- Gym
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I'm either writing stuff that some unfortunate PhD student will have to read in 30 years, or reading stuff that someone wrote 30 years ago.
On a typical Friday night I am
These days usually hitting a happy hour.
