Born and raised in Portsmouth, England, in a provincial area called Drayton. After school, college, and a year at Portsmouth Uni, studying predominantly Photography, Media and Film Studies, I left for Uni in Sheffield. Had a fantastic time 'studying' and successfully received a degree in Film Studies. Like many graduates I still had no clue as to what I wanted to actually do? After another year in Sheffield not doing much I decided to spice up my life with a move to London.
Got a job at the National Film Theatre where I have spent the last 2.5 years. Since working in London I have developed a passion for travelling and with very generous holiday allowance and flexible shifts, I've used most of my spare time seeing other parts of the world (while still feeling like a tourist in London!). The best of both worlds one might say huh? This time has been great but my thirst for travel and adventure has become too much, I need more!
Two days ago I handed my notice into work and have booked myself onto a TEFL course in Thailand, I fly on the 5th Jan (now 4th Dec).
At the moment my intention is to complete the month long course and get employment as an ESL teacher in Taiwan. Then who knows?
I hope to use this blog to record my adventure, and bug my friends with updates!
