Pronouns: he/him/his

I completed MAPH in 2022 concentrating in Creative Writing and Cinema and Media Studies. My creative thesis project was a single-location dark comedy crime screenplay about inept gangsters, crooked cops, and a crippling inability to escape a life of crime, all set against the backdrop of Christmas Eve. I received my B.A.s in Film and Media Studies and Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology from Yale University in 2020 before taking a gap year during the COVID-19 pandemic to complete the manuscript for a science-fiction/fantasy novel that I cooked up right after graduation. In my spare time, I enjoy watching (binging?) movies and TV shows, playing a single song on repeat for days on end, hanging out with friends (what do we do?), and taking long walks by the lake.
