About me

Industry Student
Introduction This blog lives in a world of femme fatales, screwball comediennes and dapper gentlemen in top hats with occasional ventures into the modern day in true Back to the Future fashion. Unfortunately this time machine only exists in my mind as I'd have made millions by now, and more importantly sipping daquiris on some beach with Cary Grant. Grab a cowbell and welcome to the mad tea party.
