About Me When I'm Not Working


Board Games

I am a big fan of modern designer board games. Here is a very short list of some of my favourite games:

  • Blood on the Clocktower
  • Brass: Birmingham
  • Wavelength
  • Cascadia
  • Cockroach Poker
  • Inhuman Conditions
  • Captain Sonar
  • Eclipse: Second Dawn for the Galaxy
  • Flamme Rouge
  • Chinatown


I grew-up doing athletics most of my life. But as an adult I have started to enjoy running for my own pleasure again. I mostly run as a meditative exercise as I find it really easy to let my mind wander when running. I’ll often solve my coding or research problems during a jog.

I have managed to run a half-marathon a couple times with only moderate levels of pain.


I enjoy reading books. About 50% of the books I read are fantasy, but I generally read in a wide range of genres, fiction and non-fiction.


As of 2022, I have visited every state in Australia plus the two main territories (Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory).

I have visited 9 countries:

  • Australia
  • New Zealand
  • United States
  • Mexico
  • Fiji
  • Vanuatu
  • New Caledonia
  • Colombia
  • Germany
