Life is a performance, not a rehearsal. There aren't any second
chances so let's make the most of our chance now.
Dividing my time between Perth and Indonesia. I'm in indonesia now
What I’m doing with my life
Writing, planning my next trip, looking for the battery charger for
I’m really good at
Encouraging and empowering others.
Nothing else in particular and everything in general.
The first things people usually notice about me
I look very serious. But when they get to know me, they find out
I'm really open and friendly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Just finished reading the Cursed Kings series by Maurice Druon, it's a translation but still worth it. The Lord of the Rings; The Hobbit. Lots of non-fiction. These are the books I'm waiting to get a chance to read: A Distant Mirror by Barbara Tuchman; Trend Following by Michael Covel; Write to Sell by Andy Maslen and Canon TR2/EOS 1100D (a book of everything about my camera hehe); and a whole heap of books on investment psychology... to try to make my brain work better.
Movies: anything directed by Hitchcock or Kubrick. Starship Troopers for the black humor, that Robert Redford film where he's lost at sea. I also watch a lot of documentaries.
Shows: Jersey Boys, Cats, they're all good.
Music: Baroque, traditional, anything uplifting and fun. The Pogues, Banana Splits, They Might be Giants, OK Go for the videos, the Four Freshmen.
Food: Almost every cuisine, especially Indian and Padang. I don't eat much meat and I try to avoid shellfish, crabs etc.
The six things I could never do without
Kindness; beauty; friendship; purpose; freedom; and happiness.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to achieve my goals and improve the world around me.
How to create lasting charity.
How to know the right thing to say immediately and not two hours
How to get more people to read the good things I write.
So much to think about, even more to do.
How to reduce the number of objects in my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Visiting the funky bars in the cbd of my city.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once put my shopping bag on the seat next to me when I was on the bus. Even though I only paid for one seat.
I once stopped in front of a bakery and enjoyed the smell of the freshly baked bread, but I didn't buy any bread.
I once stole a kiss from a girl and didn't give it back.

If you've read this far, I will probably send you a message anyway.
But you can start the conversation if you want.
