Passions: Emergency Medicine. Travelling. Writing. Sci-Fi. One day he would like to successfully combine all four.

Likes: The natural world. Astronomy, puzzles, and all things geeky. The Oxford Comma. Living by the seaside. Scuba diving. Double entendre’s. Skiing. Almost anything with eggs in it. Long distance running.

Dislikes: Long distance running. Raw tomato’s. Anything ‘banana’-flavoured, except banana’s. Grammar abuse.
