Hello, I’m Ian. Some people call me Ina. Online I’m normally tiedyeina. I’m a geek. I’m a jazzophile. I like words, cooking, maths, music and watersports. I look a bit like this –>
When I sent that picture to the people I’d be working with in New York, they didn’t know if I was a boy or a girl. I’m a boy. Ian is a boy’s name. Ina is not. I can see where the confusion seeped in.
I recently moved to New York from London (though I’m originally from Wales). This is a blog about my having moved to New York from London. I first lived in downtown Manhattan with Rob. He’s also also a geek. He moved back to London from New York. I don’t know why. Now I live with two pretty girls in Astoria. I have to say they’re pretty, it was part of the moving-in agreement. But, they are pretty. And we live in Astoria.
I’m going to be doing maths & computery research in New York. You probably think that sounds really cool. You’re right. Remember that bit in Terminator where Skynet takes over the world and kills all humans? Yeah, that’s pretty much what I’ll be doing. Probably.
If you’re reading this from London, I recommend moving to New York.
If you’re reading this from New York, please leave the name of your favourite bar/venue/place in the comments section.
I normally end blog posts or emails or postcards or ‘about me’ sections with kisses. Like this:
