Los Angeles, CA - United States

The kind of person who has a favorite sentence, a BFA in creative nonfiction writing, and other attributes that describe someone who is the worst. An expert on nerdy things, music, television, film, and literature. I like dark comedies, movies, TV shows, and books with no protagonist, and sad songs. “No thank you” is my favorite phrase.
