Born and raised in San Diego, CA, I am an aspiring filmmaker, or film journalist. Whichever one sticks. Way too obsessed with a galaxy far, far away for my age. You will often find me discussing a series about dragons and ice zombies on social media. Without the arts, I don’t know where I would be in my life right now. Storytelling has allowed me to let my imagination run wild in ways even I couldn’t predict. If I don’t pick up, it’s probably because I am too busy writing or watching something (good or bad) at the cinema.
