Glendale, California - United States
Four things to know about me: I despise Nicholas Cage, I am deeply afraid of horses, I think Root Beer and Melted Cheese are absolutely disgusting, and I will defend the Lost finale until the day I die. I enjoy writing about movies, television, cartoons, anime, history and comic books. I recently graduated from the University of Nevada-Reno where I obtained degrees in both Journalism and Communication Studies. I currently live in Glendale, California and my favorite hobbies include Pop-Tarts and fighting traffic./s
