Video editor, writer and science enthusiast.

A bit about me: I'm courteous, respectful and sympathetic. If you ever forget your lunch at home I'll totally go halvsies with you on my turkey sandwich. I like to read just about anything - fiction, non-fiction, comic books, magazines, tabloids, twitter feeds, reddit. I'm also a pop-culture fanatic and huge nerd. One time, when I had to empty my pocket contents at the airport, I spent nearly ten minutes trying to explain to security what twenty-sided dice are used for. They were genuinely fascinated.

Videography and video editing are also passions of mine and I've worked as both an assistant camera operator and editor. One day, once I acquire all equipment and talent, I hope to start a small production company and bring some of my crazy ideas to the web.

What is unique that's not in your bio?
For me, the perfect time to eat a banana is when it's almost perfectly yellow with maybe just a hint of green. If there's a single brown spot on that thing, I'm out.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
The summer I beat Chrono Trigger three times and got to see "The Dream Team" ending.
How do you define cool?
It's kind of like Batman riding a light cycle through the Death Star trench while listening to Skrillex.

How do you reset to be creative?
I like to listen to Radiolab podcasts while playing Words With Friends.

Scientific or technological breakthroughs, games published by Blizzard Entertainment, anything produced by Shinichiro Watanabe, Chapters gift cards, riding the bus, bacon.
Predict something awesome for 2020?
Genetic engineering combined with stem cell research and robotic/computer integration will give rise to an immortal human mind. And Fox will renew Firefly for a second season.
