The Distracted Monkey

The Distracted Monkey is the platform where I share my journey, my ideas, my struggles, and my goals with the world.

I like watching, reading and playing stuff. Doing that inspires me to make something of my own that other people can watch, read and play. So, The Distracted Monkey is the platform where I share my creative work and my journey with the world.

Hopefully my work can inspire someone to do something of their own and that is the goal of this platform.

About Me

My name is Smit Machhi, and I’m a space ninja trying to find peace while at the same time fighting alien overlords and there is no way you can prove me wrong.

Ok to be serious I’m just a student. I’m a filmmaker at heart but I’m enthusiastic about lots of things and I strive to do all of them. The Distracted Monkey is the place where I document my life and thoughts.
