I'm a 18 year old student living in York and London, who blogs, breathes, and studies English and Related Literatures at the University of York. I do some other things too, such as work backstage on plays, and I design some things, including posters & magazines. Seeking work experience in journalism/design.
I've been blogging since Summer 2009, and you can view my blog at blog.direthoughts.com. It's where I share my probably deluded thoughts about a variety of things, or express what creative talent I have. Sometimes I have a good rant about life, though.
I've been lucky enough to be part of the Theatre Technical team at my school, and I've mostly done sound, using QLab. QLab is able to do both sound & projection, so that's fairly useful. I tend to edit sound and build soundscapes using Audacity, and draw sounds from freesound.org as well as archive.org and Youtube.
I got a Canon EOS 600D in February 2012, after a fair bit of saving up, and donations from Roo Reynolds and Nic Weninger.In return, I am going to be publishing 52 CC photos under a license of my choosing - theoretically one per week, but I have limitations with my time sadly. I have the 18-55mm EF-S f/3.5-5.6 kit lens, and the 'nifty fifty' - 50mm EF f/1.8, and I'm looking forward to doing lots of other things with it - I take it most of the time with me if I'm meeting up with friends.
You can view my photos on my Flickr as well as on the special tumblr.

This website was built using Sublime Text 2 & Bootstrap by Twitter. It uses Open Sans by Google, and JQuery. It has a responsive interface, thanks to bootstrap-responsive.css, and is partially inspired by Boot Metro for some ideas. Thanks to Glyphicons for all of the little icons. You can have a look at the old version of this website at this thing of text.
