I’m a 26 year old guy who loves his films, his games, his stories, his history, but above all his family. I’ve traveled a lot so far and intend to keep on travelling to places I’ve yet to experience. I’ve recently graduated with honors from the University of Exeter, located in the south-western region of England, and am on something of a working gap year. I chose to study history because I feel it encompasses all aspects of life, it’s the study of evolution, of society, and of humanity. That and it helps me better understand the places I visit and plan on visiting doesn’t hurt either.
This year away has been exceptionally interesting and has helped me develop further away from education before I return to study my Master’s degree in the 2016/2017 academic year. Recently diagnosed with High-Functioning Autism I have been compelled to return to this WordPress blog to better express myself. I am currently working for my local museum and aviation center.
