Interests

  • Video gamesI'm neutral in the console wars: I'm mainly a PC gamer. I like old-school point-and-click puzzlers (I grew up on the Monkey Island series, and recently I've loved Disco Elysium), and games that reward exploration and curiosity. (Yes, I've played a lot of Skyrim.)
  • CrochetI got into crochet around ten years ago during a bout of illness, and it's helped me to stay sane ever since. Whenever I need a break from the screen, crochet helps me to regain focus. It's very meditative - all you have to do is get into the pattern of motions and counting - and you end up with a prize for relaxing your brain.
  • AuthorsNeil Gaiman, Margaret Atwood, Phillip Pullman, Ursula Le Guin
  • MusicPanic! at the Disco, iDKHOW, Måneskin, System of a Down (ask me about my gaming soundtrack mega-playlist!)
