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, which was pretty cool.

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

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