Wow... Just realised it's been aver a year ago since I posted on to here! So much has happened since then, I don't really know where to start... 1st year of Uni = done. 2nd year of Uni = done. 2nd tattoo = done. Study Abroad year = currently in progress. Seriously, looking back to 2013 when I decided to change my life and apply for university, I honestly can't believe how much I've done, places I've travelled to, and the people I've met. I never dreamed that I would have been able to work on different media production projects and be doing something with my life that I truly love. As I write this from my room here in Flagstaff, AZ, I'm very thankful that I decided to give myself that final push to do something positive with my life.
Oddly enough, a knock-on effect of me going to university has been that I've gotten more involved and become a more active member of the RTUK community. I realised that back home in Northampton UK, my creative side was being stifled and suppressed by the people I was around and the life I lived. However, being at University and getting to know the RTUK community has introduced me to an incredible, creatively positive environment that I've truly enjoyed and flourished under.
I truly think that without the influence of Rooster Teeth and its community in my life, I wouldn't be anywhere near where i am now, or have the goals in mind for the future I have. I most certainly wouldn't have my professional portfolio and showreel I have now, to go along with the professional work I've made - www.puzzledpenguinproductions.com
As I look to the future, there's true excitement to be felt, the next 5 months I'm spending studying here at Northern Arizona University, my final year at Coventry University and the projects I'll be making during that time, the possible professional work I'll be taking on. Now, to add to my excitement, RTX London has finally been confirmed for this October!!! I've always so desperately wanted to attend RTX, and now it's coming to London, I finally have the opportunity to do so. Furthermore, I've decided to apply to be a Guardian for the event. It'll be a fantastic opportunity for me to give back to Rooster Teeth and it's community which has given me so much over the years and helped me through so much.
Bring it on 2017, I'm gonna kick your ass!!! :p
