I would describe myself as a comedian. It’s the one talent that I associate myself with the most, even though I may not show it. I’m also a broadcaster, writer and musician. I see myself as a journalist, however I’m not too sure.
Let’s not forget my passion for finance. I used to spend hours reading finance blogs back in the day (I still do to a large extent today), and I can spend hours arguing about the economy and the global finance. It’s become apart of who I am and the passion remains strong.
Most certainly, this blog is about my writings and my poetry.
I really do enjoy a bit of everything in life. I think it’s important to enjoy everything you do. I love cooking, reading and all that generic do-wah.
One of my biggest achievements is my podcast, “The Zero Hedge Daily Round Up”. It’s a finance editorial/news bulletin that’s also part comedy. Although I’m not sure. It’s such a fine mix that you can argue it’s either, however I’d like to think of it as the perfect hybrid. It’s informative enough that it’s journalism, yet it’s funny enough that it’s comedy. I think even the greats like Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart weren’t able to do this. I always thought there was too much emphasis on the humour.
The reason why it means so much to me, is because it was my first truly successful media project. I’d been trying for years, over a countless number of failed projects and it had completely crushed me in the end. Then I decided to give it another shot, and the Round Up was the one that pulled through.
I cannot tell you how grateful I am for its success.
As for my music, I’m merely a hobby musician. I played saxophone for seven years, then I stopped for two and decided to take it up again this July. I also played clarinet during that period. I experimented with guitar. I’ve currently been playing piano since December 2011.
I used to be an amazing saxophonist. I still have the technical skills, I just need to work on my tone. My aim is to eventually get a tone as good as Johnny Hodges. He’s my idol at the moment.
I’m sorry if I did such a bad job. I’m horrible at introductions.
The idea for this page was inspired by the game design of Banjo-Kazooie.
Now kiss me.
