Curiosity Cake

Recognises Amazing Things People Do

I’m Lee Delaney, a curious kid who became a curious adult, professional introvert and nerd. I’m originally from Northern Ireland but I’m now settling in Harrogate with my Yorkshire born-and-bred girlfriend after pitching up in many places including London and Beijing. I’ve experimented with multiple careers, including Criminology, psychotherapy, teaching and data analysis, but I never quite felt completely satisfied with any of those due to the fact I just get bored focusing on one single thing for a long time. My dad would probably say I just went where the wind blew me.

Eventually I realised I was choosing work that was out of sync with my personality, so I started to look at myself and what I really wanted my life to look like. I discovered I’m most happy while learning something new but generally no-one wants to pay you to learn whatever you want in the real world, so I did the next best thing: I created Curiosity Cake. I love discovering ideas from all subjects and use the podcast to satisfy my own curiosity. Nothing makes me more excited than having a great conversation with fascinating people and finding out about them and what they do.

I also draw on my experience wandering through an unconventional career path in my work as a professional coach for introverts. So if you’re an introvert interested in achieving success in your career or other areas of life then get in touch to find out how I can help you.

In my spare time you’ll find me training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, meditating, weight-lifting, watching films and reading (with shockingly big text as I have a visual impairment). I’m also a father to some very hungry and demanding guinea pigs.
