I hope you're all doing well, sorry I haven't been active on here in such a long time. I've been looking through my notifications and have been thoroughly amazed to see how everyone has been doing and what they've achieved in the past year. People getting married, having kids, moving houses and states. I'm happy to see so many people doing well!
For those who I haven't seen on other social media platforms this past year, let me give you the skinny on what happened in the past year:
The first half of 2016 was particularly rough on my family, with my brother Daniel being hospitalized after he fell over and broke both his arms (for those who don't recall, Dan has a rare genetic bone disorder). He was hospitalized for almost 3 months and nearly died twice in hospital. Afterwards he had to learn how to walk again, he's doing much better now and he's ready to move on from all that happened in 2016. So I'm definitely rooting for him this year.
I'm currently finishing up my Bachelor's Degree in Film & Television here in Australia, I just have one last credit point to finish up and then I'm done. Last November I completed my graduating film which I had the pleasure of co-writing with Dan and then directing (only about 13 students in the entire year level got to direct their own projects).
It's a short comedy called "Party Tricks" and I'm currently in the process of sending it around to film festivals! We had the good fortune to have it accepted into the Silver Wave Film Festival in Canada last year so hopefully that's only the beginning for its time on the festival circuit.
Other than that, I've been keeping myself busy, working where I can and I'm currently studying up on my trivia in preparation of going on Who wants to be a Millionaire: Hot Seat in February!
