About Me


To try everything once. Oh, and to find the best chocolate without getting fat.


Quirky. Talkative. Overly analytical. I like to really know people.

I've always lived in London but I'm reasonably well-travelled (though not as much as I would have liked by now). I occasionally do solo trips, which is why I joined CS.
I meet people everywhere: trains, bus stops, queuing for things... you name it (I find a joke and a magic trick helps to break the ice) and I stay in touch with everyone. Seriously. Even people I met in hostels, years ago.


"Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else."

Music, Movies, and Books

I don't really like picking favourites.

Music: Hmm... Lonely Island and whatever the radio plays. Seriously, just play anything and I'm happy.

Movies: I've seen most of the imdb top 250, haha. I used to watch a LOT of movies. I've seen a lot of the classics and I often watch a lot of foreign movies (Korean, French, whatever) as long as they're subtitled.

TV shows: Arrested Development, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Peep Show, Archer, Community, 30 Rock, Dexter, Gilmore Girls, Legit, The Office, Workaholics, Game of Thrones, Brooklyn Nine-Nine

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Stand-up comedy at open mic nights was scary fun. As was bungee-jumping and sky-diving. I also appear on TV gameshows from time to time.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm always correcting the English grammar of non-native speakers. Unlike locals, they appreciate it!
I know a fair bit of magic but I have to be careful not to teach you anything too amazing. Can't give all the secrets away, now can we? :p
I do a bit of salsa and I'll be happy to show anyone the basics.

Hmm, what would I like to learn? Anything! Honestly, I like to learn a bit about everything. Perhaps a few guitar chords would be handy, since I haven't got round to learning it.
