I'm equal parts geek, hipster and artist. I probably fall somewhere between introvert and extrovert.... I'm generally quite quiet and reserved around people I don't know, while my friends and colleagues would describe me as being quite eccentric and passionate.
I'm not into sport or cars or getting drunk at all. I'm not a typical blokey manly man.
What I’m doing with my life
I teach animation/art. Film/animation/art is something I take very seriously. I tend to talk about stuff like this a lot. Once you get me started... I find it hard to stop...
My job can be pretty intense. There's a lot of people involved, not just students but staff that I care a lot about and I try to keep people happy wherever possible.
I’m really good at
I'm pretty good at art/animation... good enough to teach it at least. Apparently I'm also really good at Sonic the Hedgehog 3.
The first things people usually notice about me
A lot of my artist friends caricature me with a big wide grin so I guess that?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't see a lot of people listing similar interests here so lets
just say I like stuff that's weird.
I obviously like a lot of animation, Pixar and Studio Ghibli are
good. Films that have a lot of heart. I also like stuff that's a
bit dream-like and surreal. Also get into fun shlocky nonsense
quite a bit.
I like a lot of abstract electronic or indie rock music. But I have
quite a broad taste in music.
I'm a vegetarian so I like food without meat. But to be more
specific: Pizza and Japanese food is yums.
The six things I could never do without
1) My friends and family
2) My cat
5) The internet
6) Sleep (although I've frequently had to do without it)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Films and animations and music and even videogames I'd like to make. I think I'm slowly getting back into actually making stuff which is good.... it's a bit hard to balance that out with teaching.
I also think about social inequality, and how this problem can be solved. It's a tough world out there and I have a lot of sympathy for those on the lower end of the social spectrum.
On a typical Friday night I am
Fridays I'm usually reeeeal sleepy these days. So not a lot.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have really stretchy ear lobes. FACT.
