From a young age I'd ask my dad which commercials were good and which were bad. I also used to make my own magazines, complete with articles, editorial spreads, and yes, print ads. When I was 11 I was given a video camera for Christmas. I'd make commercials.
I'd like to think that the above paragraph explains why I do what I do.
Besides writing, I enjoy eating carbs, painting with oils, watching reruns of The Office, and buying things I don't need on the internet. I also run a semi-successful dog blog and am a pretty good photographer.
