I'm a neuroscientist. I study movement coordination and related disorders. I can't say my job's boring because the nervous system is pretty cool, and teaching can be good fun as well. If I'd known better when I was young, I'd have gone into something that would let me get outdoors more. Love it when I can get out into the countryside on the bike. On early rides, I see farmers out on the land, and often wish I had a job like that.

Owner/director of a custom software development company. No, not Microsoft, (although our name's similar).

Not as grand as it sounds - we have 8 developers and generally have fun (although finding new work is currently a challenge).

Commute to work is 2.5 miles direct, so I often put in a loop through the local villages to up it to 10 or 17, with a few good climbs in. I think this is sensible, but sometimes wonder.

Pretty lucky to be doing what I do, where I do! :D
