My self-summary
Adventures were my highest excitement for a number of years and I never thought that would change. A number of years ago, through my whirl-winding and ramblings, I crash-landed in Fremantle and found myself attending Notre Dame University and studying a Bachelor of Counselling. And now, I have graduated and am enjoying the big boy life.

I like climbing trees and going on adventures and talking shit and having picnics and watching clouds and drinking cleanskin wines.

I align myself with Kantian Deontology, and live existentially. I love like Plato, and adventure like the great Taoist sages. I like this world quite a bit.

I don't understand why more people don't climb trees and read their books up there. I think people should hold hands more too.
What I’m doing with my life
As mentioned above, I have graduated from a Bachelor of Counseling at Notre Dame, Fremantle. I found that degree extremely life changing. I have dreams of going on to do my Masters and even maybe a PhD. But who knows what will happen... Since leaving high-school my life has taken some amazing twists, turns and back-flips. The future is just as mystical and unpredictable as it is illusory.

Also in a band, I think we're pretty awesome.
I’m really good at
People; each new person that I meet represents a unique world. I also kind of feel like I 'get' people.

I also like to write.
The first things people usually notice about me
I think most people meeting me for the first time will realise that I can be very inquisitive.

The six things I could never do without
Barring the obvious biological requirements I am pretty happy living without most things. I think I would need to be near the beach or some cool nature for most of my life... But that's really it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
“Admit it. You aren’t like them. You’re not even close. You may occasionally dress yourself up as one of them, watch the same mindless television shows as they do, maybe even eat the same fast food sometimes. But it seems that the more you try to fit in, the more you feel like an outsider, watching the “normal people” as they go about their automatic existences. For every time you say club passwords like “Have a nice day” and “Weather’s awful today, eh?”, you yearn inside to say forbidden things like “Tell me something that makes you cry” or “What do you think deja vu is for?”. Face it, you even want to talk to that girl in the elevator. But what if that girl in the elevator (and the balding man who walks past your cubicle at work) are thinking the same thing? Who knows what you might learn from taking a chance on conversation with a stranger? Everyone carries a piece of the puzzle. Nobody comes into your life by mere coincidence. Trust your instincts. Do the unexpected. Find the others…” ― Timothy Leary
On a typical Friday night I am
That.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't believe in democracy.
You should message me if
Your heart tells you to.
