My self-summary
So, this is my first update of this section in about 4 years. I'm currently starting my 3rd year of film school at Ryerson. I spend a fair amount of my life filming, thinking about filming or dreaming about filming. I work part-time for a small production company as a cameraman, while filling my Summer hours with work at Varsity Theater serving all of ze alocoholz. I'm a shy person unless we're talking film, in which case you've got no chance at shutting me up.

I'm also a shutter bug so if you don't like getting your picture taken just take a pass on me. It would be unavoidable.
What I’m doing with my life
Filming, filming, filming. When I'm not doing that I'm stuck in class, or stuck at work. Failing that I'm watching a movie. Failing that I'll be relaxing having a drink. My goal's getting into the film industry as a cinematographer.

A few of my shorts are listed below.. just a sampling, some good, some... not .
I’m really good at
Well I'm pretty decent at hockey but I'm kind of rusty having not played for a few years. Although I don't play my bass guitar much, if I set my mind to learning a song I can usually pick it up. My only issue is writing songs, but I'm not exactly aiming to make it big with my bass so that doesn't really bug me.
I've started drawing recently and although I've gotten better I'm mainly drawing comic book characters so I can't very well say I'm good at that yet. Only thing I can say with some certainty is that I'm a good cinematographer, which means I can light you to look great while also choosing the most beautifying camera angle. There's more to it then that, but that's the simple explanation.
The first things people usually notice about me
Uhh I hate this question... uhhh I'm tall and I have curly hair... Though if the first time you see me is in a picture you'll probably notice my devil red eyes first (they're actually blue...). So in summary you will notice in order my: height, hair and then possibly my eyes, blue if a good picture and red like the glowing fires of hell if the person with the camera has all the photographic talents of a bat.

Unfortunately it seems that bats have taken the most pictures of me over the years...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
BOOKS: "IT" or "The Stand" by Stephen King, "The Road" Cormac McCarthy, also In the Skin of a Lion by Micheal Ondaatje.
Graphic Novels (these count as books too, kind of): Watchmen, The Dark Knight Returns, Kingdom Come, Arkham Asylum, Batman: Year One, and Batman: The Long Halloween.
MOVIES: Pulp Fiction, Citizen Kane, Dr. Strangelove, The Godfather, The Godfather Part II, Reservoir Dogs, Full Metal Jacket, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The Searchers and Rashoman... this is a much shortened list, so many good films are being left out it makes me sad
MUSIC: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead, Cake, Beastie Boys, Sublime, The Meters, Joe Tex, The Incredible Bongo Band, Curtis Mayfield, Quasimoto, Madvillian, Gnarls Barkley, James Brown, Beck, Dr. John, Pink Floyd, Pearl Jam, The Black Keys, Rage Against the Machine, Weezer, A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots and The Doors. Besides all of this I also love anything funk... side effect of playing bass
FOOD: As of late I've really been a fan of steak sandwiches, but honestly I'm not sure if I have a favorite food. Update!: Still don't have a favorite food. Tenatively searching, no answer in sight...
Six things I could never do without
My super expensive camera, my 300+ blu ray collection/1000+ dvd collection, my laptop, those people called friends who put up with me on an ongoing basis, Coffee, a film audience
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What the hell I'm going to do after I finish film school. What kind of job I'll end up with and whether I should throw it all away to overthrow Stephen Harper's government. That'll probably get me on some kind of list.
On a typical Friday night I am
Generally working a shift at the theatre... Unfortunately my days off tend to fall mid week. Good news is the bar isn't packed to the brim, bad news is it's because no one else is going out drinking...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
See this one is tricky, because if you reveal too much people think you're weird. On the other hand, if you don't reveal enough, people get annoyed that you're too private, hmmm where is the balance... Silent Bob is a god to me... wait that's not private.. hmm... My sister's a lesbian? wait that's not about me... and it isn't a secret... third times the charm.. I guess I'll have to tell you I love the movie Baseketball. I know the movie is atroscious but despite it's flaws I still laugh my a** off everytime i watch it. A blunt comedic force at the top of it's game...

As many have stated the whole point of something being private would be destroyed by posting it here so if you want an actual real 'private thing' for me to admit then you'll have to at the very least e-mail me
You should message me if
You like movies, you're interesting, you find Micheal Bay movies retarded, or if you just feel like it... I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be offended if you message me.

Translation: Message me if you feel like it... Barring unforseen circumstances I will respond and I don't think that I've ever been 'annoyed' by someone messaging me.
The two of us
