Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Wow, it's been a while, hasn't it? Into the fray, I guess. Hi, I'm
Alex. Here's what I'm all about.
After a stint in Pittsburgh for a few years, I'm back in my
hometown of St. Louis, MO.
After graduating from a four-year university with a degree in
communications, I'm an advertising content writer. In my spare
hours, I write articles in media criticism and I also make
desultory video productions on my Youtube channel. Good times.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Online journalism and video production. I also write about music
and games online. I'm an avid videographer and I know a thing or
two about writing, podcasting and all that fancy 21st century
digital age stuff. My home base is currently in St. Louis,
Missouri, specifically the Chesterfield region.
Being a music/gaming nerd, going to shows, making videos, writing
articles, all that good stuff. Fascinating culture, it is.
And before you start making assumptions, no, I don't waste my
entire life indoors playing video games. This seems to be some sort
of stereotype that gets tossed around much more than people want to
admit. I like games and I write/produce content about them
professionally, but I get out of the house and exercise just as
much as any other person. I wanted to get that out of the way,
since...well...trust me, labels are already starting to be printed.

are always a struggle for someone interested in writing. It's tough
staying on top of everything going on in my life, but I
occasionally have a "Matrix" moment and wonder if the world we live
in is real or not.

I'm not going to give a twenty-line checklist of what I "expect" in
a person, because that's not how this stuff works. Bonds don't come
from bulleted lists; they come from conversation. Use those social
skills and something might happen. You never know.
However, if you think that social skills means giving me a message
that simply reads "hi" or "what's up", there's a probable chance
that nothing will come of that. I appreciate you making the first
move, but give me something to work with, please.
