Organizing the World Transhumanist Association (which I cofounded); explaining transhumanism in a variety of different media; writing papers. The latest transhumanist project was the FAQ.

Academically, I'm completing my PhD. I have a background in both science (physics and computational neuroscience) and philosophy, and I was in a dilemma before I decided to do my PhD in the philosophy of science. This turned out to be a good choice because I could study all the science I want without having to specialize on one narrow field.

Like the rest of you, I'm seeking to develop myself as a person and I'm eager to acquire all the skills and knowledge I can. I've been taking acting classes for some time. I'm doing competitive debating. London is a wonderfully resourceful city :-)
