Relocate to England (London area, I think) to settle down, make a living, make a life.
I grew up a UN brat. At only 5 years old, my family and I relocated to Syria and Israel for over a year, and that's how my fierce love of traveling came to be. It was also early enough to shape me into the person I am today, which I believe to be open minded and have an eagerness to always learn as much as possible about people and different cultures, to be kind and considerate. Based on how much traveling I've done, how much I've seen and experienced, I can't say I'm bound to any religion, or feeling particularly religious at all. I am, however, an agnostic; I don't want to throw away anything, and that includes being open minded to other people's beliefs and try to understand it.
I have a fierce kind of a hunger for making films. I've done writing, directing, editing, producing, music composing, and I enjoy the heck out of it. Fresh out of film school, I find myself acting like a sponge with every new experience and job I get, sucking up as much knowledge I can. It's the ultimate rush being on set, the panic when some things go wrong, the satisfaction when it's right, the caffeine streaming through your blood to keep you awake at your 22nd hour behind the camera, and the most amazing sleep when you're done. It's like magic to me.
Other than that I'm an animal lover right to the bone. My dog (a collie, like Lassie) is my baby, and I think I'm having a long distance relationship with a horse I've known since I was 12. I really love music, and I play saxophone, piano, and recently started learning guitar and the violin.
(Will write more about myself at a later point when I not just registered at 3 in the morning :)
Trivia about me:
I'm short by nature, but I stand tall by choice.
Everything in life is a choice. If I'm happy, it is because I choose to be and not let myself be miserable. Misery is easy, happiness you got to work at.

I'm just starting out, will definitely write something worthwhile at a later time!
None yet. Which means I'm nervous like heck, but I'm willing to dive head first and pray I don't get myself killed in the process. Nice to meet you.
