My self-summary
I like good conversation, writing, old horror movies, Eastman and Laird comic books, and Swedish Berries. I'm pretty sure I could live on Pepperettes. Original flavour, of course.

Oh, and I have a vast knowledge of (and unquenchable love for) '80s hair metal. I don't ask that you approve, only that you tolerate.

I was once described, while eating some very sour candy, as looking "like Brendan Fraser fucked a pug." I thought that was great.

What I’m doing with my life
The last few months have been spent writing scripts, going to auditions, performing, and working on a radio demo.
I’m really good at
- writing
- breaking movies into their three-act structure
- being snarky on Facebook
- English grammar
- anti-theism
- spilling food all over myself
The first things people usually notice about me
First, I guess, people notice how tall I am. I'm 6'3 and I've not always been proud of it -- especially as an insecure thirteen-year-old. As a consequence I've somehow programmed an awful slouch into my posture. I'm trying hard to break it.

Being this tall comes with a few disadvantages. Some cars just aren't made for me. Old basement apartments are sinister obstacle courses, with their low light fixtures and deceptive bulkheads. And showers generally don't "shower" anything above my chest. Again, the need to slouch.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I dislike the dark. I'm not afraid of the dark -- I'm not! -- but I'm not averse to sleeping with the lights on. It depends on my mood and frame of mind.
