About Me

An aspiring filmmaker, I recently moved from Maine to Austin to pursue my career. Movies are my obsession, particularly exploitation films, horror and classic melodrama. I dabble in blogging on film, feminist and queer issues. I’m a longtime lurker on Autostraddle, looking to join in on conversation and hopefully make some friends, online or locally.
