About Me

CURRENT MISSION

investigate what I have not seen within the borders of my own country and accept people's lives.

ABOUT ME

I am currently living in NYC! I freelance doing animation and motion graphics, what I love. I graduated from university in Savannah, GA, USA for animation and I'm just livin' life right now. I'm a Christian but I love to experience all cultures and make my own opinions on things without being told what to think. I love traveling but I'm just getting into it. I love making music with buds and playin football (not American football but that's good too) and any sort of sport. I love art and films and I'm a sucker for film festivals and weird indie films. Bring one with ya and we'll watch it.

I'm freakin goofy and have a ridiculous sense of humor but it's all in good fun and for a laugh.

PHILOSOPHY

"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?"-Matthew 7:3This Matthew verse is basically my life philosophy. We all have so many faults that it is not our place to cast judgment on each other but to just love each other for the life we live and try and help each other out. It's been working for me so far. And trust me in that, no matter what your religion, we'll get along brilliantly.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have surfed AND hosted while I lived in Ireland for a summer and travelled all around Europe. I've also done lots of CS meetups when I lived in NJ.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

It's always been fantastic. Just some great girls and a guy or two has stayed with me and my buddies when I was living in Ireland and it's been such a great time and we've been great friends since.

Also I did a fair amount of CS meetups when I lived in Princeton, NJ. Great times were had and friends were made.

I hope and assume that most people here on this website are just as friendly and ballin.

Interests

Religion, Soccer, photography, animation, films, art, discussions on anything really (while not getting too hostile of course. I love arguing but not when people are gettin pissed off), I like investigating hobbies like smoking tobacco pipes, wines, beers, foods and the like and seeing what really tastes best. I love doing them purely for fun and discussion with my mates.I also enjoy videogames and the like as well as computers. And I watch tv shows like a junkie because I love good television.

Music, Movies & Books

This is too hard.Music - Beatles, Pink Floyd, Avett Brothers, Sigur Ros, Blue Scholars, Matt & Kim, basically all music with the exception of screamo and top40 rap. I have a love for underground and 90s rap and I love bluegrass/indie music. Like I said... anything goes really.Movies - Probably the hardest. I watch more movies than most people so it's hard. And I love foreign flicks and smaller budget films. That's my love. And animated films with a special interest in experimental animation. Love it. I guess just talk with me because there are too many. But a few are Moon, Hurt Locker, The Class, King of KongBooks - old Science fiction (a la Twilight Zone style stuff), Catcher in the Rye, comic books, American Psycho, Bible

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Busked (street performing) the streets of Galway, Ireland with my buddy Patrick and met a wealth of people doing it. Good craic.

Teach, Learn, Share

I know a lot about photography, film, animation, art and things along those lines.
