About Me

I like photography and cinematography, check out this video me and my buddy Ozzy did back in Vancouver...


Although I've changed a lot since I put up this video 4 years ago (for the better I hope ;), I still love photography and cinematography. But it's far from being a precise description of my person as a whole. In fact, I don't think it's possible to paint an accurate picture which is why I'm just gonna put my main focuses at the moment up here:

1. working
2. learning
3. enjoying life

in that order. I could probably speak for hours about every one of those three, but I also like to keep things simple ;)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Originally I was just surfing, but now that I have my own place I can finally host as well!
