However, sometime in December of 2015, I decided to go on a date with someone that I didn’t take the time […]  Read the Rest »

On Writing: “Behind Enemy Linens”

“Behind Enemy Linens” was a story that I wrote for Little Red Bird Press’ anthology titled BLOCKED. The idea behind BLOCKED was to tell stories about the world of online dating through sites such as Tinder and OKCupid, and specifically, the horror stories. If anyone has followed me for any length of time, you may […]  Read the Rest »

On Writing: “Home Sweet Huck”

In September of 2016, I entered Mark Millar’s talent search competition for a chance to write a “Huck” story within the 2017 Millarworld Annual.

Obligatory SW: The Last Jedi Thoughts

I have opinions about pretty much everything so here we are as I’ve decided to collect and share my thoughts on Star Wars: The Last Jedi here.

My Best of 2017

I think most of us can agree that in 2017 the world was an epic dumpster fire that none of us could put out. That being said, despite all of that, 2017 was one of the best years of my life for a number of different reasons… It’s been a while since I’ve written anything […]  Read the Rest »

A couple weeks ago, I was boothed at Word on the Street, selling copies of Secret Loves of Geek Girls on the cusp of the Dark Horse Expended Edition.

Dating Diaries: The Herpes Bandit

I’ve been on and off dating for the last little while. Over the summer I chose to mostly be off of them to just focus on hanging out with my friends and working on projects etc. I was super ok with this and had a great summer without any dating drama of any sort (crazy […]  Read the Rest »

Dating Diaries: Take Me To Degrassi

For most Canadians, a staple of growing up was watching episodes of our debatably most famous TV export, Degrassi Junior High. However, I didn’t grow up with a TV for the most part and thus I never really got the chance to see episodes of the beloved Canadian classic (later iterations would career launching platforms […]  Read the Rest »
