Cartoon Brew Podcast


Since I mostly talk about animation over on my other site, Animation Complex, I forgot to post on here that I started producing a podcast for the animation news site, Cartoon Brew. The second episode launched today! In it, I interviewed the director and animation sup–Tony Cervone and Bill Haller–of the newest US animated feature, […]

A New Normal


There are four vaguely similar self-indulgent blog posts sitting in the drafts about the end of 2019 and the start of 2020 and my existential dread as a 30-year-old who fears that growing happiness and stability must be counter-balanced by equally Bad Things.

30 Before 30

Goal Tracking, Personal

I’ve got a fun existential piece in the draft pile brain-dumping my thoughts about turning thirty and how it simultaneously doesn’t matter and IS EVERYTHING, but this is a much more basic post for the sake of getting something out there as it’s been a minute since I posted.

I am a writer who struggles to self-identify as a writer. I’ve never felt deserving of the moniker and while there’s a lot to unpack in there, let’s just vaguely say that I am slowly getting better. A side effect of this lack of confidence is a lot of writing that never sees the light […]

Standing Still in 2018


2018 was a year of changes for me, more so than any has been recently. After starting at Blue Sky, I found some stability, but not safety. I was restless and frustrated. When I had friends and family my age buying houses and settling in to what would hopefully stay their ‘forever’ homes/careers, I was […]
