My self-summary
I majored in filmmaking with a minor in philosophy, and just got back from the states last year. I'm a film buff and would watch just about anything. I'm not pretentious and I don't discriminate "commercial" films in favor of "arthouse" cinema. Similarly I don't discriminate people. I'd like to think I am open minded. And that's sorta my philosophy in life. To stand for nothing so that one embraces all. Other than this, I can be quite laid back, funny, caring and attentive.
What I’m doing with my life
Taking it one step at a time. Right now I'm focusing on my career (at my age who shouldn't?). But life is all about balance. That's why I'm here, trying to meet new people :-)
I’m really good at
- Copy & pasting lyrics on facebook.
- Analyzing movies
- Making them (or at least I aspire to be good at it)
- Copy & pasting lyrics on facebook.
- Learning. Yes, the more I know the better I feel.

Books?
Hmmm... Right now I've been stuck (and in love/inspired/motivated/changed/etc/etc) with Gilles Deleuze's Cinema 1 and Cinema 2. That said though, I don't fully understand the book. And have been rereading them... a lot. I'm also a Paulo Coelho fan.. for whenever I need a dash of optimism and encouragement.

Food:
Anything, really. I probably won't go out hunting for cow tongue or lizard meat but if invited, I'd be down in a heartbeat. I'd like to try everything at least once.

Our existence.
On a typical Friday night I am
If I am not working, I'd be at home watching movies or TV series back to back. Sometimes jamming (I play guitar/bass/drums and attempts at singing). Sometimes I play board games with friends. Sometimes writing. Sometimes editing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been trying to grow a beard since I was 12.
