Get to know me

A few key details, and then some fun facts:

  • Born and raised in New Jersey, where only 45% of Jersey Shore stereotypes are true.
  • According to the pseudoscientific MBTI personality scale, I’m an ISFP. This means I’m detail oriented, creative, calm under pressure, and intuitive–when reading both people and media.
  • Someday, I hope to work in the video game industry in an effort to improve the discourse that surrounds games and the people that make them.

Fun Facts

I came up with this list of fun facts so that I’d never have to worry about not having a fun fact during fun fact ice breakers:

  1. When I was little, I wanted to be a trucker, of all things.
  2. I can recite every word of every song in the musical Rent.
  3. I took goju-ryu karate for 5 years and kendo for 2 during middle and high school.
  4. I have Neopets pet pages to thank for sparking my interest in html, css, and site design during the mid 2000s.
  5. I also have my web developer mom to thank for giving me the tools to learn those things.
  6. I live with a cat, and I love her with all my heart, despite being allergic.
  7. May or may not be related to #6–but my nose is so changed by lifelong allergies that I frequently smell phantom smells.
  8. Definitely related to #7: I had an MRI to get that all checked out, and the experience is as close to facing a Biblical angel as I think I’ll ever get. Blinding white lights, thunderous noises beyond my human comprehension, faced by thoughts about my own mortality–the works.
  9. Top 3 horror films: The Witch, the 2016 Blair Witch (you read that right),  and The Babadook.
  10. I’m super fascinated by ancient Mediterranean literature. Some of my favorite texts include The Golden Ass, Chaereas and Callirhoe, a few pieces from Catullus, and everything by Sappho.
  11. I love drawing, and I just recently picked up a tablet this past Christmas. Check out some of the stuff I’ve done on my art page.
