About: Personal

jackacon (noun); a portmanteau of Jack (my first name) and Otacon, itself a portmanteau of Otaku Convention, but more importantly, the name of one of my favourite game characters of all time, Otacon. I also go by the name of Kirchie, a nickname I was given in the MMORPG World of Warcraft.

Outside of work, my main interests include video games, swimming, cycling and music (listening to and attempting to play along to).

I’m currently trying to learn the guitar and train for the European swimming master’s competition in London in May 2016. Hopefully I will be able to say I’ve done at least one of them in the next year!
