Like every other gen Y I like photography, especially film photography, I know that its recently become a very hipster thing, but I was doing it when it was uncool, way before skinny jeans and lattes. Besides my camera is far too heavy for the average hipster vegan to lift, so I'm exempt.
Despite my fluffy hair, I'm actually not an inept, pseudointellectual, professional blogging (unemployed, or employed by centrelink), non myopic eye-wear wearing, soy latte sipper on the hunt for the next soon-to-be-trendy Melbourne dive. I'm actually pretty fucking capable, I build shit, manly shit! like houses, I'm a half decent carpenter and steel fabricator, I fix up radical old cars to drive, and am currently sewing some baby blue suede couch cushions. That being said, I currently work as a graphic designer for a television station, you know those story specific backgrounds that pop up behind the newsreaders, I make them. I'm also trying to finish a science degree after successfully completing a journalism degree just in time to watch the print journalism industry have a massive coronary and fall to the floor clutching its chest.
I quite enjoy road trips, the more obscure and remote the better really, there is something nice about getting out of the neurotic, gluten-intolerant, paleodiet cities and seeing how other people in little towns live their lives, in some cases without fast internet!!!
I'll be honest, I'm a little bit of an introvert at times, often because I've expended my small talk quota and cant bring myself to pretend to care about puppy farms or fighting the evils of globalization through facebook likes. Instead I often escape into my shed and work on something practical, I quite enjoy the satisfaction of seeing a tangible finished result, something we miss out on a lot in the modern age.
I should also add that I'm half danish, and spent most of my childhood growing up in Copenhagen, this has given me a great appreciation for culture (not pointing fingers accusingly at you Australia), butter, functioning civil infrastructure and pastries.
Also, there is still a general consensus from interweb peoples that I sound arrogant and full of myself, I can assure you that this is merely how I write and probably completely misleading.
