Music, Movies, and Books

I am a big fan of The Velvet Underground, Roy Orbison, Talking Heads, Howlin Wolf, Muddy Waters, Creedance, Buddy Holly.

I recently read Norwegian Woods by Murakami, I also like the Wind Up Bird Chronicles. Charles Bukowksi's Ham on Rye was another recent read.

Midnight Cowboy is my all time favourite film, a close second is Stranger Than Paradise by Jim Jarmusch.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

During my third year of study, I completed an Erasmus exchange to Ghent, Belgium. My time spent in Belgium was truly incredible, Sint Lucas was a wonderful host school and I met an endless array of great people, many of which are still some of my closest friends. The entire six months was just a blur of adventure and learning. One of the highlights of living in Belgium was the never ending catalogue of local Beer's, my fellow erasmussen and I made hefty progress in trying as many different beers as possible. By the end La Chouffe and Valeir were my joint favourites.
