About me

I try to be a diverse person with an extremely wide range of interests. I try to understand the world around me and am an enormous fan of humanity, in all its imperfect glory.Adventure suits me fine, as does sitting at home with a great book. Whatever life throws at me. However, I enormously prefer creating things than consuming (except a good meal). If you have a project and noone else can help, ask me!
