Rebecca Who!?

I'd like to rant on here about how cool I am, but I'm not cool, I'm just nosy. We could say curious, but let's call it what it is. I get angry at bad stuff. I use that anger to drive me to take action. We could call it passion, but let's call it what it is.

I don't take myself too seriously. I mean, imagine if I did. I'd be a nightmare!

In the main bit of my life, I work for Reason Digital as the Strategy & Insight lead. Our motto is "do some good with digital" and we work mainly with non profit types, which is lovely.  

I get asked to talk at events and conferences quite a lot and I've spent quite some time as an Associate Lecturer at Salford University and MMU. That's pretty grown up, but I'm over 30 now, so I need to get over it. 

I'm aiming towards a more sustainable life and like to help out the disenfranchised and misunderstood. So I've been on the NEC as Campaigns Officer for The Pirate Party and have been active with Greater Manchester Cycling Campaign.

I used to be a punk, but I'm retired now. I like jazz, and glitch... and funk and gabber and what not, and I'm more likely to wear some trainers than some large black boots. So I can't really be a punk. 

Cosmonauts are cool. I used to want to be one of them, but I'm not Russian, sooo that went out of the window! I like space and physics and new technology. My first profession was avionics engineer (on military aircraft) but the pacifist in me made me give that up. 

I think imperfection is beautiful and I like breaking things for fun. All of this makes me sound really busy and active, like I'm constantly running around taking stuff apart to see how it works or something just as exciting, but in reality I spend most of my spare time sat around with my many cats, eating curry.
