Interests

•    In my spare time I like to create and script assets in the virtual world of Second Life, watch films and play games.  All of these activities have been enjoyable for years and I see no sign of growing out of them.
•    I have a strong love and passion for video games that was sparked when my parents bought me a SEGA Mega Drive at the early age of two. Since then I have played over a hundred games spanning all genres on more than 14 platforms.
•    Socialising is very important to me. Whether it’s catching up, discussing current events or retelling past experiences I value the thoughts of others and the time spent together.
•    Swimming is something I’m not particularly good at – but enjoy immensely. There’s nothing really quite like it.
