I temporarily abandoned Canada’s snowy climate to study Psychobiology and Astrophysics at the University of Hawaii where, despite formidable distractions, I still managed to earn a degree. At night, I alternated between plying the streets of Waikiki in my pedicab and playing drums at Pearl Harbour Naval Base in the Enlisted Men’s Club house band. It was a colourful time. My enduring penchant for film, words and ideas ultimately led me to where I am at this, ever ephemeral, moment. I work primarily as an actor and location scout… and I write. As much as I can, but not as much as I should. Because now, more than ever, I feel that I have something to say.

    very interesting observations Upright Monkey, i’ve been taking a keen interest in the quantum world in recent years (more particle physics than special relativity). just when i begin to ‘figure out’ the basics of the standard model or Feynman diagrams, poof! along comes a dozen variations of String theory, plausible theories for ‘warp’ speeds, and even the reality of teleportation (via quantum entanglement). Including logic into the equation really makes my brain hurt. But hey, i’d take that over punching a rock any day.

    Hey! You have a really incredible blog πŸ™‚
    So much talent it’s amazing!!
    Could you please check out my blog? I’d love to get advice from you πŸ™‚

    All the best,

    • Thanks very much. I’ll check it out, for sure (I just did, actually, but only had time to skim it). Even with a cursory glance I identified some simple things that could easily bump up the quality and readability of your work.

      I’d be happy to share my thoughts with you, but hesitate to do so in a semi-public forum. If you specifically request me to do so, I will. Don’t worry, it should be painless. I think the fact that you’re exploring and sharing your passion at a young age is awesome. Keep it up.
