Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a filmmaker and a photographer, and I do some writing on the
side. I work hard but I love to kick it, and I'm just trying to
rack up as many dynamic experiences as I can.
Traveling is one of my first loves, and I try to do it as often as
possible. Besides that you'll catch my interest with (among other
things) indie films, game nights, good concerts, new places to
explore in the city, and good dinners with good friends. Still, a
night in with a nice drink and a solid Netflix queue isn't too
In anyone I'm close to I appreciate intelligence, wit, a good
heart, and a genuine nature. Hopefully the people close to me can
say I have those traits as well.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I taught high school for three years before leaving to travel full
time, and to (cliche alert) figure things out. I'm now putting my
film degree to good use in my work making short films and
documentaries, which I really, really enjoy.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Storytelling, using my camera, creating good Spotify playlists,
navigating Yelp, making grilled cheese, choosing quality picks on
Netflix, listening, and most sports.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family. Friends. A camera. Nostalgia. A journal. Optimism.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Literally anything and everything. My mind is always racing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It ranges...out to dinner with friends, staying in kicking back,
exploring the city...I'm open!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I low key love trashy teen tv dramas...i.e. Gossip Girl, One Tree
