  • Camping & Hiking

    • Usually solo, but I will enjoy a challenging Mountain Hike with anyone. My skill level is probably moderate to advanced scrambling.
    • Camping: - a tent is usually used when camping, but using a tent does not mean that you are camping.
  • "Munro bagging"

    • I have mostly finished the Lake District and have now set myself personal challenge to climb all Scottish Munro Mountains - if anyone wants to join me in this, contact me - some of the more difficult Munros need more than just me.
    • My future aim is for the Inaccessible Pinnacle.
  • Science Fiction/Fantasy and classic Literature

  • LaTeX, Linux, and Matlab

    • I really don't like Microsoft products - using them is like only gesticulating to a computer to try to communicate, rather than telling a computer exactly what you want in a common language.
    • Matlab made my life much more simple after years of C++.
  • Coffee

    • Coffee + Mathematician = Mathematics.
