About Me

I want to relish all the world has to offer, but I need to push myself constantly, by working, studying, writing, voyaging into the unknown and headbanging 'til my neck threatens to split.

Music, Movies, and Books

Films? Anything with a massive-but-taut story and / or beautiful choreography.

Music? Mainly black metal and death metal, but other guitar-based styles too. And bad Eurotechno.

Books? "Person has unlikely role in interesting place at some point in the past" is a pretty good plot, as far as I'm concerned. My favourite is "Jonathan Strange And Mr Norrell".

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Travelled to Romania and back, via Albania, in a Peugeot 106 in the middle of winter. Although making the impromptu decision to climb the thirteenth highest mountain in England to watch the first dawn of the current millennium was marvellous too.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach Maths, practice speaking German with you, and tell you aaaaaaall about black metal. And tell a lot of peculiar tales.
