Story
Tagline
John Freeman has a PhD in Physics, he writes, he paints, he tutors and He's a Scout leader. To his frustration he has never been able to dance, whistle, or play anything musical. he'd like a job that didn't involve getting out of bed so early. Or ever.
Introduction
I'm a writing, drawing, painting, tinkering, all round space and science geek. I've got ferocious technical skills: I've worked on everything from spectrometers, to high tech coatings, to mass spectrometers, to diffusion pumps, to electronic cigarettes. If you can name  a piece of tech, I've probably at least tinkered with it.
 
I'm also good with people: I work as a private mathematics and physics tutor in the evenings, and I'm a Scout Leader.
 
As for hobbies: I'm a contributer to the American Association of Variable Star Observers solar database, I spend many evenings searching for meteors with an especially modified camera. I've tried Judo (I got squashed pretty fast), longsword fencing and Sabre fencing.
 
If you know me, you know that I'm definitely me and not the average guy.....
Bragging rights
I've got an amazing, close knit and loyal group of friends, an incredibly supportive familly, and the most wonderful missus on this planet. I'm a very lucky guy.
