My self-summary
I'm film mad. I like stories in most of their guises. I'm back in Birmingham after being away for awhile at uni.
What I’m doing with my life
Working as a camera operator on a shopping channel. Trying to fill the rest of my time doing creative projects.
I’m really good at
Remembering random facts. Knowing the name of that actor in that thing, and who is doing the voiceover for that advert. I also sing and play bass - though I'm not sure that I'm 'really' good at those two.
The first things people usually notice about me
The beard. Or that I'm short, probably the short thing to be honest.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:

I have quite a wide range of favourites. For a novel it would have to be Wuthering Heights, though only if I were forced to answer.
I'm quite a big geek so I also love comic books (and their fancier, adult friendly counterparts Graphic Novels) as well as the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett and too many others to list.

Movies:

I'm obsessed with films so this is almost impossible to answer. I'll just list the top 5 I can think of right now.

1. The 400 Blows
2. Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain
3. City of God
4. Die Hard
5. Beauty and the Beast

A fair range of choices there i think.

Shows:

Almost as hard as movies this, lets just say I can watch a multitude of stuff from hard hitting drama (The Wire) to children's cartoons (too many to name).

Music:

Mostly into rock or old blues. Though I do like old school Hip Hop, folk, electronic stuff and many other genres.

Food:

Apart from being vegetarian I'm not that fussy when it comes to food though I do have quite a sweet tooth but thankfully still no fillings - yet.
The six things I could never do without
1. My family.
2. My friends.
3. My glasses.
4. A camera.
5. Music.
6. A pen.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
ideas for films, whichever book/s I have to read that week and a multitude of other things which pass through my mind depending on what's around me.
On a typical Friday night I am
doing something with my mates but that's as specific as it gets. Depends on what mood we're in.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was about 4 or 5 I managed to remove my eyebrows via a massive chewing gum bubble which popped unexpectedly. I looked constantly surprised for about 3 weeks.
You should message me if
You fancy a chat.
