"I don't want just words. If that's all you have for me, you'd better go."
– F. Scott Fitzgerald
"Some people think that little girls should be seen and not heard...
but I think... OH BONDAGE, UP YOURS!!!"
– Poly Styrene
Writing, art, and education are the claps that keep me from tuckering out like Tinker Bell. Growing west from Maine to California with a background in literature, cinema, and media studies, faculties for "critical analysis" and "creative resolution" have become my primary selling points, but it's music, film, poetry, TV, travel, spaces of public learning, and creative communities which give me peace and direction when I get distracted by the minutiae of "work."
Whether to discuss my work, my goals, influences, the merits of the dash, the music I'm into, TV shows I have or haven't seen, fictional characters who have broken my heart, why movies rated R for language rule, which section of the library is best, cabbages and/or kings, etc., I appreciate your interest and sincerely welcome your correspondence. You can also follow the movies I've been watching (and whatever thoughts I may leave) on my Letterboxd.
