Getting to know Sebastian. by FH99February 12, 2008
Part 1: Favorites:
Q: What are your favorite things to watch on TV?
A: I’m more of a movie guy than a TV guy. Since i’m a cinema major I tend to be hyper critical and technical when it comes to movies. I have so many favorite movies that I wouldn’t know where to begin to list my favs. But i’m a fan of Heroes, Scrubs, and My Name is Earl on TV. But like i said, i don’t watch a whole lot of television.
Q: What is your favorite food?
Favorite food is steak. I tend to eat healthy, but i will never turn down a good steak
Q: What is your favorite color?
A: Favorite color is either Red, Yellow, or Black
Q: If you could have any car, what kind of car would it be?
A: I was actually looking at buying a new car after a photoshoot, but the photoshoot fell through and now i’m stuck a bit shorter on money than expected. So needless to say, car isn’t happening. But I love the Lotus Elise/Exige. I also like corvettes, only american car i like. The cheaper cars I like are Subaru WRX Sti, Infinity G37, Nissan Z, etc.
Q: If somebody gave you $1 million, what would you do with it?
A: If someone gave me a million… hmm. I’d pay for the rest of school first. SCHOOL IS EXPENSIVE!!! I believe I have at least 36k left to pay for it. Then I’d give a bit to my parents to help pay for some things. Then i’d buy a car and put the rest of it in savings and not touch it unless absolutely necessary.
Q: What do you like to do for fun?
A: I play video games for fun. I also like to make short films and stuff. I like to read, I like to watch movies. I love to exercise and personal train, I have a group of 30 guys who like to work out with me at the gym, get’s interesting trying to come up with stuff they can all do haha.
Part 2: Travel
Q: Where have you gone on vacation?
A: I’ve vacationed in Alaska, Finland, Sweden, Russia, Estonia, Denmark, Florida, North Carolina, California, etc.
Q: Out of all the places you have vacationed to, which was the best?
A: I can’t say there’s a ‘best’ place I have vacationed, but I really enjoy the beach. I’d be a beach bum if I could afford to be. My grandparents own a beach house and that’s one of my favorite places to go.
Q: If you wanted to live in another country, which one would it be and why?
A: I think I’d probably like to live in Australia or New Zealand because it’s so gorgeous there
Part 3: Film
Q: You’ve mentioned that you’re studying film in college. What would you like to do after college?
A: . I do study film. I have an uncle who is a director out in LA and I intend on starting by getting some internships out there and eventually moving out in that direction. Ultimately i’d like to be a director or work in post production in either audio or special effects.
Q: Who are your favorite actors and actresses?
A: I don’t have any favorite actors. But my favorite directors are D.W. Griffith, Mernau, Hitchcock, Orson Welles, Guillermo Del Toro, Terantino, Scorsese, and so on…

Q: I’ve read that you’ve trained in martial arts. What forms of martial arts have you trained in?
A: I took Tai Chi, TKD, Shaolin Kempo Karate, and Shorin-Ryu Karate
Q: Which form or martial arts is your favorite?
A: I think shorin-ryu was my favorite instructor. But I learned things in each art that I took to other places. I learned all kinds of neat tricks and I have all kinds of stories from MA. Those things i’ve learned have helped me outside of the gym as well
Q: How long have you been involved with gymnastics?
A: I did gymnastics for six years and coached for three and a half. I was a level 10 gymnast, olympic level on the rings. I also did four different martial arts and enjoyed those very much. Other athletic hobbies include soccer and rock climbing.

Q: Did you play any other sports growning up outside of gymnastics?
A: I played baseball when i was really young. then i moved onto soccer which i still very much enjoy.
Q: What is your favorite thing about being a camguy?
A: My favorite thing about being a cam guy is being able to talk to some interesting people. I get to meet some really neat people and make some cool connections working on here. Some of the people are pretty fun to talk to. Plus, if I’ve had a rough day, I always get support here and that’s always a welcomed bonus

My introduction. by FH99February 2, 2008
Since I’m hopefully going to be able to allow everybody to get to know some of the camguys better, I decided that I should introduce myself. So, here we go.
I’m a life-long resident of Missouri. I’ve always been passionate about watching sports. Auto Racing (Nascar), baseball, football and hockey are my favorites. I’ve never been much of an athlete myself though.
One of my other hobbies is sports trading card collecting. I collect baseball, football and hockey cards. I’ve been doing that for about 10 years. I have quite a few cards in my collection. I look at collecting cards as an investment. I like seeing how the value of a card goes up and down.
The story of me and this site is a unique story. I first heard about this site on a message board when guyswithcams.com orginally launched. I was a lurker on the forums back when the site first started with only a handful of camguys. I didn’t post very much for a while, mainly out of shyness. I started to come out of my shell a little more when the forums moved away from ezboard and to something similar to what they are now.
Not long afterwards, I ended up having to take a hiatus, which is something I regret having to do. I returned to the site last year and quickly got back into the swing of things on the forums. I’ve gotten to know a lot of great people on there. Since I became a member of this site just over a month ago, I’ve gotten a chance to see what is on the other side of that link to the members section. There is a lot to look at there.
Well, I hope I didn’t bore you too much with the details about myself. Hopefully, I’ll be able to post something about one of the camguys soon. If anybody has any questions you would like for me to ask a camguy, feel free to send me a PM in the forums. If I feel the question is appropiate, I’ll ask it.
