About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Help make the world be a better place (and have a laugh)

ABOUT ME

English;
I grew up on a farm near Wellington. My parents met at a conservation conference, and I love nature too.
I enjoy and dabble in music of all sorts, jam bass, ukulele, and mess around with production.
Also into surfing (new to it, but my-god it is awesome), snowboarding, BMXing, hiking, trampolining and most other fun stuff!
I´m a yes guy, love to make the most of every opportunity.
Joking around is key, and I can still laugh at myself.
I am non-materialistic as it is reasonable to be in this modern world. Anyway, talking in person is far preferable. See you here or there!

Español;
Yo me crié en una granja cerca de Wellington. Mis padres se conocieron en una conferencia de conservación, y me encanta la naturaleza también.
Me gusta y se meten en la música de todo tipo, bajo mermelada, el ukelele, y perder el tiempo con la producción.
También en el surf (nuevos en esto, pero mi dios es impresionante), el snowboard, bmxing, senderismo, salto de trampolín y otras cosas divertidas mayoría de los otros!
Soy un chico sí, el amor a sacar el máximo provecho de cada oportunidad.
Bromas es la clave, y todavía puedo reírme de mí mismo.
Yo soy no materialista, ya que es razonable que en este mundo moderno. De todos modos, hablando en persona es mucho más preferible. Nos vemos aquí o allá!

PHILOSOPHY

moderation in moderation
