In short

  • I love summing up my life in quotes, so here goes:

    "Trying their wings once more in hopeless flight:
    Blind moths against the wire of window screens.
    Anything. Anything for a fix of light."
    ~X.J. Kennedy, "Street Moths," The Lords of Misrule

    "There's someone inside me that softly kills everyone around
    They don't know they're dead to me cause intent never makes a sound
    All along they found I strangled lovers who've learned from slower hands
    With these eleven minutes I could teach you what I am"
    ~anberlin, "Reclusion," Cities

  • Not famous. YET! But I have been published in Purdue's Bell Tower 3 times. I hope that counts for something.
