Thanks Shad.
That was really cool. Reminds me to reading man pages more often :)
 -print0
              True; print the full file name on the standard output, followed 
by a null character (instead of the newline character that ‘-print’  uses).
              This  allows  file  names that contain newlines or other types 
of white space to be correctly interpreted by programs that process the find
              output.  This option corresponds to the ‘-0’ option of xargs.
