About Me


Visiting the New Orleans Film Festival!


I´m no:
dancer, lifeguard, Robin Hood (to steal from the rich and give the poor and all that crap!), Pokemon Player, fifth Beatle, Harvard graduate (hell no!), geocentrical postpubertal football quarterback, green day fan, wood scientist, Gary Larson character, Freud reader, `head and shoulders knees and toes, knees and toes´ champion (although it was once really, really close!)...

but I am:
filmstudent, drummer, Gary Larson fan, CG Jung reader, an undiscovered soccer star (still waiting for the billion Dollars FC Barcelona contract [including the leg insurance and all that]!), cat lover, rather unreliable Spice Girls fan (well, well! What you´re gonna do?), wannabe wood scientist...


I got to squeeze every inch of emotion out of it (whatever this could possibly mean?!)!
