I'm a stupidly fast typist. 140 WPM (Words per minute) on average!
What's your favourite food?
A medium-rare fillet steak, accompanied with sautéed onions & garlic with a white wine and butter sauce. Delicious!

Avatar. The CGI effects that were rendered at the time are absolutely astronomical. Can't wait for the second!
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Atlantis – Underwater city, who wouldn't?!
When you were little, what did you want to be?
An Artist/Tattooist. I still really enjoy art, love ink work (has to be black and white), but feel if I did it as work, I'd lose a passion towards it.
What's your favourite book and why?
I only really ready Fantasy books. Honestly there's too many to state! However, notable recommendations Inheritance Cycle - Christopher Paolini. Children of Odin - Padraic Colum His Dark Materials - Philip Pullman Witcher series - Andrzej Sapkowski
