  • In my downtime I like to listen to obscure podcasts and scroll endlessly through Twitter.
  • Favourite Sports Cricket, Curling and Rugby
  • Recommended read The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
  • Favourite game 30 Seconds or the historic ‘438 game’ (5th ODI SA v AUS, 2006) depending on the interpretation of the question.
  • If you could choose any person from history to be your friend, who would it be and why? The person with the ability to enact things hypothetically.That way I wouldn't have to make any one decision and could revise my opinion if it turns out (as it most likely would) that my new historical friend X had any unpalatable views.

"I know that the Millennium Falcon completing the Kessel run in twelve parsecs is impressive because it’s shorter in distance, rather than in time-as is often assumed."
