My self-summary
Philadelphia native.
Slightly obsessed with podcasts & audiobooks.
Overly obsessed with Hamilton

In search for a partner in crime to assist in heists and general thievery. Maybe the occasional con and/or hoodwink.

Also in search of a muse. I have a gift for putting my heart not so much on my sleeve, but in my lens.

I very much relate to John Dorian and Ted Mosby (with aspirations of Marshmellow & Lilypad). I've already got an eeeeeagle.
What I’m doing with my life
Exploring the infinite abyss.

Crying over how expensive MFA programs are. I just want to get more edumacated, not go into a second lifetime of debt.

Making art that I genuinely care about and have a passion for. Taking pictures of stuff and convincing people to pay me money for it. Trying not to sell my soul for a paycheck. Attempting to combine the three into a cohesive career of getting paid to make art that I can invest my whole self into.

-Being a scratching post for my cat

-Building fires and hiking. (Eagle Scout)

-Paralell parking.

The first things people usually notice about me
I have an accent and I'm racially ambiguous.

Ask me about my heritage. It's a good story.

And I have great hair. When I can find a good barber that is. Been having bad barber luck lately.

I have 2 tattoos. One for Star Wars, one for Tourette's Syndrome.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Exploring the liminal space between the production of a film and the realization of a cinematic story. Searching for a way to capture the threshold that separates the world that is externally crafting the story, and the world of and within that story itself as it unfolds for the characters within. Attempting to illuminate those philosophies with a rectangular frame and shades of black and white.

Writing obnoxious artist statements like the one above.

Are we Nation of States? What's the state of our Nation?
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends drinking
In with friends smoking
Home with my cat watching Collateral.
You should message me if
You think there may be more to life than being really really really really ridiculously good looking

You're not prejudice against Slytherins

Oh, and I'm a feminist/equal rights/pro choice/lgbtaq+ ally/evolution believing/science worshiping/pot smokin artist at the end of the day. So yeah.
