FUN FACT (about me):

I was ranked the #2 creative student in the world by the One Club in 2020.

MORE FUN FACTS (also about me):

I manually flush automatic toilets.

My favorite textile pattern is seersucker.

I have an affinity for the number 8. No reason.

I still cut myself while shaving—unrelated to previous fact.

I know the ins and outs of Parcheesi. Pawn of choice: camels.

I've sang along to "Hey Jude" with one of The Beatles, so that's pretty cool.

I've rated and reviewed every movie I've watched for over a year. Check out my Letterboxd

Koalas have two opposable thumbs on each hand (not about me, but I think more people should know it).
