I've tried to create a blog which documents life in Mexico City, and about me growing up and being seen as a 'proper' adult man. There's bits about me conquering mountains, and physical tasks. My year travelling gave me tons of stories and I've started sharing those too - with a post attached to each country i visited for more than 48 hours (there's lots more to come). My true passion is film and I plan on starting a few projects of my own this year, so i've started writing a little about film stuff too.
