I don't know what to put here and I keep changing this stupid bio and it's never perfect. I'll get it eventually.

I used to be passionate about history but I find that the further I pursue my creative endeavors the less intrigued I am by the subjects that once interested me. Ancient Rome was a huge interest of mine, but suddenly over the past couple of weeks I find myself increasingly infatuated with the Celts. Perhaps soon it will change once more.

I am a very big fan of the Brannagh production of Hamlet though I know and acknowledge the controversy of Brannagh hiring Kate Winslet because he said he had to wait for her to be 18 so he could cast himself doing a very very very unnecessary sex scene with her. but the aesthetics are great, I love them. I think I like David Tennant as Hamlet just a little bit more because Brannagh is very manicky, which is a choice of style -- I was saying he was manicky as someone who has experienced manic episodes, but he did say in the commentary that he deliberately chose to present as manic while playing Hamlet. I haven't gotten around to the Mel Gibson Hamlet, and the Richardson Hamlet was too incestuous for my preference.

I don't mind the Ian McKellen Macbeth, but I rather disliked their Lady Macbeth, but it's hardly untraditional.

I love black, dark, bitter coffee. I want it to burn my mouth, I want to be wired. That's how I know it's good. I use dark roast or espresso beans, fill the filter all the way to the top, and savor my sludge.

I aspire to be a novelist one day. It would be nice to get a short story published somewhere, but rejections rejections rejections. Someday.

I love dogs.

DM me a fun fact or a joke.
