What I’m doing with my life
My BA is in Film and now I'm opening up what I work with to new
media and other styles I've wanted to try for a long time. Most of
my free time is spent reading or writing, watching movies or
playing video games. I get to tell myself I'm studying the craft.
I’m really good at
Talking with people. There's some arts stuff I do well, but I think the most important thing is I'm really interested in other people and what interests them. It's a much better way to go through life.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Gosh. A lot of stuff. Comic books, movies, politics, color,
whatever the podcast I'm listening to is ostensibly about, how glad
I am to be out of the Midwest, that sort of thing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out with friends or home with my nose in a screen or book or

I guess it's good I'm not well traveled because I get lost really
You should message me if
You're into games. Like, video or board games. Or movies. Comics,
especially. The far-too-important-to-take-seriously and wonderful
workings of interpersonal relationships. Or if you just need
someone to hang out with.
