Who am I?
The eternal question, and I find myself asking, well, myself, this question relatively often. Ok maybe not that often. Occasionally when I can’t sleep in the middle of the night and some other infinitely more important thing isn’t occupying my mind. So I’m a guy. I was born in New Zealand in 1980 and lived in Auckland up until February of 2013, at which point I decided it was time for a change so I quit my job and moved to Melbourne, Australia.
I’ve traveled a little bit, mostly to cities… New York, London, Paris, Barcelona, Rome, Florence, Venice, Berlin, Perth, Brisbane. And that’s pretty much it. You could say I’m somewhat of a flaneur: someone who wanders the city, loving it for what it is, exploring, being. Yeah.
My religious beliefs are what you would probably call Christian, although that is a superficial way to look at a very complex but important part of who I am. Here is a place where I sometimes write/post some things about what I’m thinking or what I’m reading, etc.
I studied Fine Arts with my focus predominantly in photography and writing, and am considering my options as to what I ultimately want to do with my degree.
I work for an arthouse cinema which gives me the added bonus of free movies. Being a bit of a movie “buff” (for want of a better term), I think that is pretty much ideal. Lets just say that I’ve watched far more movies in the last several years than I would have otherwise…
I recently read Jonathan Safran Foer’s Eating Animals, a book I highly recommend (and not just because he’s one of my favourite authors), which prompted (or almost forced) me to become a vegetarian. I used to love meat and I thought that reading a book couldn’t possibly change that, but I can’t even think about eating it anymore.
So that’s it then, all my other random thoughts or happenings you will probably hear about when I post about them.
