About me

Gender MALE
Industry Education
Occupation Ex-student
Location Carlton North, Victoria, Australia
Introduction A former student at Melbourne and RMIT who hoped to get a job in librarianship by 2009. Be wary that I tend to have very specialised interests and often do not want too general questions. I enjoy reading about many difficult topics and would love to be able to discuss them with people who know more about them than people around me. I have a particular love for lists of “best” or “worst” music or books, and love statistics a great deal.
Interests music, the environment, old county cricket, footy, rugby, chess, biographies, social science, cultural studies, prime numbers, linguistics
