I’ve been in love with film ever since I was a kid. The time, effort and passion that runs through a majority most film is something that’s always attracted me to this field. What ended up happening with my big appetite for all things going on in the industry turned from random blurbs on Facebook to an unexpected but fun job. College student by day, movie news writer by early morning…or any time in the day and night when more news arrives. Working towards my bachelor’s degree in film, what a surprise. I do other things too, like draw, write stories, maintain a social life and feed my pet dragon Lockheed. If you want to know more about me, hunt me down and just ask.
