My self-summary
“The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.”
-Albert Camus

Freelance editor, artist, writer, aspiring screenwriter/director, lover of all things retro (aesthetically, that is).

The square peg in this round hole society, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Individualism rocks. Fitting in is overrated.

Art is life, the rest is just details.

Film, music, painting, sculpture, whatever your preferred medium creative expression is what makes life wonderful.

I love, love, love vintage. Retro fashion, old music, black and white film, classic cars, art deco architecture, all of it. I'd say I was born in the wrong era, but I know I'd be just as incongruous with whatever generation I was born to. My love of the early 20th century is purely aesthetic. The over the counter opium would've been pretty great, though.
What I’m doing with my life
Working as a freelance editor and copywriter, Also pitching my scripts to independent film studios to get one produced. So far it's been going great, out of the three studios I pitched, all three are interested in my scripts.

I'm also always working on other projects, with various scripts.
I’m really good at
Creating vast and original worlds to create stories in
Slaughtering sacred cows
Separating myself from worthless social norms
The first things people usually notice about me
The way I dress. It can be a challenge trying to dress like a 1920s blues player on a budget, but I somehow make it work.

Six things I could never do without
Movies, Music, Conversation, Internet connection, Individualism
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Film, music, screenwriting, philosophy, politics, fashion, editing, my friends, the baffling lack of modern iconoclasts, why society sucks so damn much.
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends. I might go to a show, or hit a bar or club. Conversely, I could spend a quiet night at home watching a film, writing or cooking. I'm very open to where the night takes me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Experimenting with substances is something I do quite frequently. I can date someone who doesn't partake, but if you're judgmental about that kind of thing, we won't get along.
You should message me if
You're a film buff, you're an art lover, you like going to shows and museums, you're passionate about something, you know who you are separate from all the labels attached to you, you don't mind my opinionated rants, you actually want face-to-face interaction instead of hiding behind a computer, you feel as out-of-step with this society as I do.

Do you find articles insightful? if so we will NOT get along. I can't stand people who have a pathological need to see their middle class existence as endlessly oppressive. Don't contact me if you're some overly PC, easily offended prat. I can't stress this enough, it's an epidemic on this site and among my generation.
The two of us
