My self-summary
I prefer a life where I can be active, involved and explore whats around me - whether that be a new place or somebody new. I like getting lost in cities and other countries, finding and experiencing new aspects of each place that I otherwise would not have experienced if I stayed on the prescribed route.

I have a number of interests including appreciating various styles of art (in particular any by Salvador Dali), sketching/drawing, photography (particularly journalistic and post modernist), watching good films (such as those directed by Woody Allen, Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, Quentin Tarantino, Jim Jarmusch, etc), reading, the sciences, and playing music on both guitar and piano.

My music interests broadly cover areas like Jazz, Blues, Rock, Metal, Grunge, Punk, . . . . I can appreciate most styles of music.

Personally, I'm a guy that's not afraid to embarrass himself and be a dork. I just enjoy having fun with good friends and putting myself out there. Be warned: I may take a teeny weeny bit of time to open up fully.
What I’m doing with my life
I have recently completed my Psych Masters and am currently working as a Youth Mental Health Clinician, but still have an ambition of completing a PhD and entering the research world when qualified. Ive also completed minors in philosophy and film studies.

When not doing any of this *absolutely* fascinating stuff, I'm launching myself along Downhill Mountain Bike runs, playing Guitar and running where ever I can.

I also spend a pretty hefty amount of time thinking deeply on many, MANY topics (too many to include but here is a sample: Physics, Astronomy, Philosophy, Consciousness, our current conceptualisation of what constitutes intelligence, existence, human development, forensics and questioning punitive approaches to anti-social activity/crime . . . blah blah blah).
I’m really good at
Overthinking and thinking on things to great depth. I dare you to open a conversation with me about parallel universes or consciousness and free will
