To travel around, write, experience things and help people out
I'm a young New Zealander with a passion for film, television, rock and metal.
I'm friendly, reliable, quiet and simply adore travelling.
I was brought up on a farm/lifestyle block so animal welfare is one of my main passions but I also enjoy writing and find music a big constituent of my life as well.
The worst job i have ever had was working in a factory (with no windows) packing bread until the early hours of the morning. The best job I've ever had was working at my current job as a Customer Support rep for the NZ equivalent of Ebay.
I absolutely adore the outdoors and love strolling about unfamiliar territory so to find new and interesting places. However, I also love to engage in some good sloth-like relaxing and taking time out to merely reflect on the beauty of that which surrounds me.
Over the course of my degree I have managed to gain a heck of a lot of knowledge regarding both the film and television industry and I'm incredibly willing to share my wealth of information with anyone as passionate as me about these mediums or even a person with a passing interest in either of these areas.
I've been a massive fan of the UK for my entire life as they've given the world so many great films and television shows like: Snatch, Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels, In Bruges, Trainspotting, Shaun of the Dead and in the TV sector: Sherlock, Luther, Utopia, Black Mirror and anything and everything David Attenborough and Louis Theroux. I absolutely adore the BBC.
Now that i've left the confines of education, my personal philosophy can be summed up with a mantra as simple as 'do it!'

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Back in 2012 I opted to swap employment, security and comfort for a 20,000 KM road-trip around Canada and the USA. During my travels I managed to visit 6 Canadian territories and 27 States. Without a doubt, it was the best choice I have made thus far in my life.
Teach, Learn, Share
I have an extensive knowledge of films, directors and their back catalogues. I am also wildly passionate about the above listed bands and know pretty much everything there is to know about them.
I want to learn more about the animals and wildlife of the world as i believe they have more of a right to be here than we do.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Anything and everything movie related. A good, dry bit of British banter. I love a good cup of tea and to be honest, have always felt a bit British at heart.
I can also tell you anything you've ever wanted to know about New Zealand as it's my home.
