About Me

Just another struggling artist traveling the world, seeking new experiences.
Filmmaker, song-writer, theme park ride attendant.
I've spent the last 3 months working as a videographer/counsellor at a Summer Camp in North Carolina.
An avid traveller from the age of five.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To gain new perspectives on life from around the world.

Interests

Filmmaking has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I've been working in the film industry since I was 16, including producing my own independent works. Currently editing my new short film and writing a soon-to-be-produced feature.

Started writing music with my acoustic guitar a few months ago. I've got a couple songs up my sleeve I'm quite proud of but am yet to play any live.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music:
My tastes range from Led Zeppelin to Taylor Swift, with a nice amount of Hip Hop sprinkled in between (A Tribe Called Quest, Kendrick Lamar, MF Doom, Earl Sweatshirt). Singer-songwriter is usually my go to (Ed Sheeran, Damien Rice, Elliot Smith). Love discovering new artists.

Movies (My Passion, My Lifeblood):
How do I pick? Top 5 is probably Boogie Nights, The Social Network, Elephant, Apocalypse Now and Raging Bull. Love anything by Linklater, PTA and Kubrick. Always seeking films that strive to be original.

Books:
Generally prefer non-fiction. A lot of film history/criticism. Bill Bryson is great too.
As for fiction, Inherent Vice and Lolita are a couple I've enjoyed.
Recently finished Catcher in the Rye, wow.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I was 9, I performed a live duet with Hugh Jackman. Afterwards, Margot Robbie told me I did a great job. None of my friends believe me.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Great conversation, a good sense of humor and tailored movie recommendations.
