I'm a filmmaker and a writer. I write for a horror magazine (articles and daily blogs) and am a sideshow performer on hiatus (straitjacket escapes, fire-eating, glass-walking, etc.-- haven't performed since late 2012, but I've done shows with ICP-- not really a fan, by the way-- and traveled with carnivals). I'm shooting a film next weekend, so I'm posting a lot about that right now. I graduate with my BFA in creative writing for entertainment in November, so I write about that a lot too.
I'm vegan and into animal rights/welfare. However, I know it's a hot topic for some people to debate, so if you have an aversion to veganism or animal rights, I don't really want to talk to you on LJ. I've been a vegan for almost five years and I'm over the thrill of debating with people who will never change their minds.
I used to ride horses (groomed for polo, trained for eventing)... and I might again eventually. Yes, I am aware that it contradicts with veganism. This is a battle that I face myself. I'm a hypocrite. I'm human (sadly).
I suffer from depression and probably several other mental health issues, but I don't write about it as much anymore, but those posts do come up. You have been warned.
I love horror, art, photography, filmmaking, crafty things... and I hope you like those things, too. I get along well with artists and performers, but hate pretentiousness. That's the entire reason I dropped out of my film program in Ohio.
I'm a Seattle transplant, but technically I am "living" in Redmond. I actually live behind someone else's couch with my husband and have been for the past year because of some issues I had with our previous landlord/boss (Note to self: never mix living arrangements with work ever again).
I'm 28 and have been on LJ since its inception on various different names.
This was a very boring post and I probably said "I" so much that I don't seem like a legitimate writer. My life is actually much more colorful than I made it seem in this post... which if you and I become friends, you will probably find out. I'm opinionated, passionate, and I act on things... all of which usually get me into trouble.
