I used to play the drums in a heavy metal band, back in my school years. I played in pubs that I wasn’t old enough to drink in. I can also solve a Rubik’s cube – if that is of interest? Nope, didn’t think so, haha!

Ross Geller from Friends. Everybody tells me my jokes, personality, facial expressions and mannerisms remind them of Ross Geller from Friends. So I’d like to find out!
