Well I guess I fell in love with movies at the age of 11 when my brother would come home for a couple weeks at a time and we would stay up all hours of the night every night watching every movie he had in his collection plus the many he'd picked up between visits. The first time I was ever inspired to create was the first time I saw Pulp Fiction and I started searching every detail of every movie I saw afterwards, trying to figure out the small things and decide what made or broke it. I never made the connection of good grades in English and Creative Writing until I realized every movie I played out in my head whenever I wasn't physically active was put onto paper.

Writing is my favorite way to channel my imagination and I try to write as often as possible to hopefully create something great.
