My self-summary
I'm a very open person and it's easy to talk to me, although I might keep my distance a little bit until I get to know people better, usually it's not noticeable though.
One of the most essential things about me is the need to travel. I grew up in a lifestyle where I was never in one country for longer than about four years, and I tend to like it that way. That doesn't mean that once I leave a place I'll never be back, just that I have the need for fresh experiences.
What I’m doing with my life
At the moment I've been back in Prague for about a year now, doing the odd film contract here and there while looking for something a bit more long term, and completely uncertain whether that should be here or somewhere outside the country right away. The longer I stay here the more I realize that I love this city and country a lot, but possibly do not feel like it offers a work environment in which I want to be. Perhaps I'll just up and leave to Amsterdam where I can fully dedicate myself to growing the startup film and photography company we created with a few friends some two years back. Or maybe I'll find a way to make my dream of living and working in Korea, Japan, or Iceland true. Who knows, but I most sincerely hope that interesting times will be upon me.
Ought to be fun.
I’m really good at
Languages are definitely my strong suit. I've been told I have a knack for creativity and looking at things from a new angle or perspective, and usually maintaining a cool head in tense situations.
One a more personal level, I'd say I'm a good cook, and that it's easy to relax around me.
The first things people usually notice about me
Depends on the people. I can't be considered an objective judge of myself, so maybe it's better if you tell me.
Overall though? Some people will point out how much of a difference there is when I switch gears. That there is a huge distinction between me on a personal and friendly level, and me while I'm in work mode. I'll still be a nice guy, no worries about that, just that there is an attitutde shift.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Easiest one here is food, my passion: Italian cuisine. I lived in Italy for about five years and it's a second home to me, so a love of the food is only natural. Both eating it, and cooking it.
Books might be a bit trickier, but the main contenders here are the "Song of Ice and Fire" series. Yes, I read it back when it was still a book, before it was made into the amazing HBO show. Although my favorite book saga would definitely be the "Wheel of Time" by Robert Jordan. I grew up with those books, and I know I'll keep revisiting them all my life. After that, probably a more common mix of Jules Vernes, Tolkien, Bujold, and some Cherryh.

When it come to music I honestly haven't had that much time to just sit back and listen to some lately, so I have to make do with whatever floats my way online or on a radio. Like with everyone, my music prefference is greatly affected by my mood, so expect anything from Ray Charles, through Gorillaz, all the way to AC/DC. One stable item will however always be Daft Punk however, I love those french bastards to death.

If you read anything else about me, then you might be wondering how come I'm not babbling about my movie choices, the answer is simple. There are too many to list, and I myself don't know which ones are my favorite. It's easier to just leave it at saying that Tarantino and Scorsese are the directors who influence me the most.
Six things I could never do without

Finding myself in strange new situations.

Great food and the chance to prepare it.

The irregular moments of reunion over a glass of wine with friends from halfway around the globe.

Escapes from reality and into fantastic worlds. Be it films, books, games, or long-winded debates.

The ability to be irresponsible at times and let loose my inner Calvin (Hobbes may or may not be included).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Anything and everything would be most fitting. I love the kind of discussion with close friends at around two or three in the morning. You know, the kind that start with what your favorite pizza topping is, and somehow, twenty minutes later you find yourself debating about whether or not the universe is really infinite and how one would go about trying to picture that.
On a typical Friday night I am
Recovering from a Friday night that inexplicably took place on a Thursday night due to a temporal anomaly caused by the intensity of the awesome activities taking place on the Friday night.
Not buying it? Ok. How about, everything is permitted. There are no typical Friday nights, just seven nights in a week that are up to you to fill with activities you enjoy the most. If you fill all 7 then I tip my hat to you and it will probably unlock VIP access for you to the top secret Michelin star private restaurant, free of charge for people who live life to the fullest. Oh and you get a +1 there, so you know, try and remember who tipped you off about the whole thing *ahem*.
You should message me if
Well, if I caught your interest in any way, then obviously feel free to, I'll answer anyone at all. Doesn't matter if you want to get to know me better, or just have an interesting topic you feel like throwing around and discussing..I'm here, so take a chance.
The two of us
