Personal Quote:

I was a history major, but that was because it took the fewest requirements of any major. In my sophomore year I started getting back into making movies. My senior year I took playwriting classes, and I feel like that's where I learned to be a writer. I started to write monologues, and that was great because that got me really deeply into characters.
