About Me

CURRENT MISSION

In September/October I'm going hitchhiking in the States. The plan is Seattle --> LA ---> Denver ---> New York. Everyone I know thinks I'm going to die.

ABOUT ME

- I'm tall and lanky, like an orangutan after a punishing session on the rack.
- I've spent the last 2 years living in small town South Korea teaching English to young 'uns.
- I used to work for Nintendo as a games tester. My 10 year old former self would've been very proud of this achievement.
- I love reading and watching movies and will talk endlessly about films, books and TV shows with anyone willing.
- I enjoy doing stupid voices. I think I do a pretty good angry Scotsman, generic Australian and Werner Herzog.
- I have a stupid tattoo that I got while I was drunk in Thailand.
- It's a tramp stamp.
- I'm an idiot.
- I'm really interested in Stoic Philosophy (Marcus Aurelius, Seneca, and the gang)
- I play guitar to a distinctly average level, but enjoy singing and playing songs.
- I can be cynical at times but I generally have a positive outlook on humanity.
