My self-summary
Bizarre mix of introspective creative and outspoken geek.

I love ideas and machines - from doing all my own car maintenance to hacking multiple lights into my room's socket and hanging them around the room like zoned octopus legs.

Keen observer of humans and the built environment - I'll notice minor details like if the sides of your non-round scotch glass are asymmetrical.

Even though I start slow, I ramp up intensity over time if I warm to things. I dig and thrive off people with drive. Americans know what's up in this department - and with a bit of luck I'll be in SF soon, so also keen to make some American Mates.
What I’m doing with my life
Slowly putting together a tech startup.

Meanwhile, I'm shooting corporates, writing tech documentation, crewing music videos, writing code and doing other strange things to pay the bills.

I've started successfully promoting new tech startups for fun. That one's for the love though.
I’m really good at
Fixing things, problem solving and sketching out battle plans. I also make a mean chilli beef jerky and reasonable homebrew.

Writing (former journo). It's not what you think: I spend too much time wondering about how sentence structure and sentiment are expressed in text. Then I remember that people are used to tweets and try to stop worrying.

I'm good at being an entertaining drinker who becomes progressively more fun before turning belligerent after ≈20 drinks and calling it a night after ≈25.

I'll be going for my snowboarding instructor qualification before the end of the year - I'm now flying without fear and landing tricks.

I'll eat and love almost anything.

I love both San Francisco and Tokyo. Haven't been to Africa or South America yet - they're on the list though.

(by no means an exhaustive list.)
Six things I could never do without
Electric Skateboard
Items that pad lists
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Architecture, urban planning, real world applications of code, the art and science of film and video, statistics, design, the sad regression of politics, philosophy, linguistics, industrial design and engineering.
On a typical Friday night I am
In no particular order:

House party somewhere
Driving down to the snow
Masterminding (or attempting to mastermind) some new project.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
On the internet? I'll admit nothing.
