Hi everyone, my name is Collin, and this is my first year attending UNT as an incoming Freshman. I'm originally born and raised in Plano, Texas and went to school at Plano West. I plan to double major in film and business with a minor in music at UNT. I'm also an Eagle Scout.
To start off, my two favorite things in the world are movies and music. I love watching any type of movie (whether it be horror, action, art house, or drama) and listening to any type of music (whether it be rock, jazz, heavy bass, or heavy metal). My favorite movie of all time is 12 Angry Men and my favorite band so far right now is M83 (which I've been a huge fan for about 6 years and seen them once in concert, which, I must say, are absolutely incredible live). I also like watching TV, and my favorite show of all time so far is Breaking Bad (yeah Mr. White!).
I love gaming too. I've grown up with video games my whole childhood. My mom used to work for Electronic Arts (before they became what they are now) and had a large collection of GameCube and Xbox 360 games. I remember the first game I ever played was Super Mario Bros. Deluxe for the Gameboy Color on an airplane when I was like 4 or 5 and, from time to time, I relive my first memories playing that game. My favorite game series is Star Fox. Ever since I picked up an N64 controller and popped in Star Fox 64 in the N64 console at a daycare when no one else was playing, I instantly fell in love and became engaged in the game's hyperactive gameplay and epic boss fights. From what I hear, another Star Fox game is in the works (which I'm dying to know what it's gonna be like!).
I'm also interested in dance. My favorite dance style and preferred style is Melbourne Shuffle. If you aren't familiar with that dance style, look up some videos on YouTube. It's really neat to watch, but even better to do yourself. (And no, it's not LMFAO party rock shuffle, so pls).
I also play piano. I've taken piano lessons since I was in the 5th grade and still continue to play and learn about this amazing instrument.
Last, but not least, I also watch a fair amount of anime. My favorite anime would probably have to be Paranoia Agent along with Planetes, Birdy the Mighty: Decode, and Serial Experiments Lain.
I'm looking forward to meeting you all (or as many as I can) at your first meet!
