About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Exploring Mexican culture whilst learning spanish

ABOUT ME

TRAVELS:I've travelled extensively around Australia and Europe. I'm currently based in Mexico. I have been out of Australia now for two years and I have made many wonderful friends, its been a great experience.

MOVIES: I've always loved performance (theatre) and writing. Whilst overseas I've made two movies - one a thirty minute comedy in Madrid, the other a 17 minute film in Mexico City. I find film-making very difficult and time consuming but also very rewarding and for me its been a great way to make friends and engage with new places that I'm living in.

SPANISH: I love learning Spanish. I'm still not great at it but I'm trying!!

MUSIC: I've played and sung in several bands. I'm currently travelling with my acoustic guitar.

HOMETOWN: I love Melbourne (where I grew up). A lot of great friends and family there. I've enjoyed involving myself in the music scene, following the Australian Football League and much much more.

PHILOSOPHY

Have to get back on that one - still trying to figure it out... In the meantime, 'don't step on anyone's toes'!
