I'm hard-working and dedicated, willing to learn any new skills and fit into any job. I made a change from genetics to computers building on the similarities between the disciplines and now I feel I'm well qualified for both. I roleplay, read widely, practise the martial arts and recently I wrote my own role-playing game which will be published at the end of May 1996.
