Location icon United States

I’m a 33 year old writer that was born and raised just north of Los Angeles. I studied Journalism and Film/TV Media, and writing about entertainment has been a dream of mine since high school. When I’m not seeing movies or gaming I’m either buried in a book, hanging out with family and friends, or spending time with my dogs.
