Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love conversations that range wildly from what’s going on in the
world to playful banter. One of the many topics I can get really
into chatting about is movies, engaging them on both the thematic
and artistic levels. I’m also passionate about art and creativity
in general. A while back, I was writing some humorous nonfiction,

topics into the narrative.
