About Me


Never slow down, never grow old.


My name is James and I'm still looking for all the questions to my answers. Impulsive, quixotic, dreamer, doer.

Graduated with a degree in International Studies (Global Cultural Studies) and Communications (Journalism / Media Studies) as well as minors in History and Film. I couldn't decide between them, so I did them all.
