I was born and raised in Spokane, Washington, and graduated from Gonzaga University for Journalism and Political Science. I write a lot of articles about Indigenous people and movies. My articles have been published in Spokesman-Review, KXLY, FaVS News, and Art Chowder Magazine. I own every Best Picture winner and an expansive DVD collection. I also took several acting classes when I was in college. I think movies are the greatest form of storytelling and I love learning about the filmmaking process.
