The most awesome thing I have ever done: I spent half a year working and travelling through Australia and New Zealand where I slept and lived in a car.

What I want to do before I turn 35: Spend a year in Canada to shoot nature and travel documentaries; eventually settle down for real; have two kids, a horse, rabbits and a dog. What I want from my future job: I want to save the earth; I would like to combine media, travel and conservation of the environment.
