Hi Hubski! I'm actually returning to this site for the first time in several years, I think I registered this account all the way back in 2012 but never got around to using it much. Here's to hoping I can make it stick this time around!

I'm a 25-year-old Englishman. I have a Master's degree in statistics and I work as a data scientist for a startup in London, although I am thinking about going back to uni soon for a PhD. In my spare time, I'm a complete history nerd. I love reading historical fiction and non-fiction, and I've spent more time than any reasonable person should on Paradox's historical strategy games. I'd love to be able to write my own historical fiction one day. It'll be set in Europe between 1848-1914. I play football (soccer to you yanks out there) on Sundays and I also follow cricket, although I'm no good at it. Arsenal FC is my first and true love.

I also love sitting in pubs and listening to people talk about their lives and interests. Hubski looks like a good digital equivalent!

Did you see that ludicrous display last night?

I'm constantly amazed by how many Americans watch the IT Crowd. I thought it was alright, nothing special, but it's clearly struck a chord with a lot of people!
