Why I write for SDM: What artist refuses to practice their area of expertise? I thoroughly enjoy writing for SDM. It's been a beautiful experience.
Activities, Sports, Interests: No sports. Photography, fiction, history (particularly WWII), role playing, and occasionally web design.
Favorite Authors: If the book is good enough for me to remember, the author is a favorite. Two in particular are Mal Peet and Christopher Paolini.
Favorite School Subjects: English, Desktop Publishing, and American History.
Favorite Movies & TV Shows: All-time favorite is Queer as Folk. Movies are Saving Private Ryan, Pearl Harbor, Titanic, The Notebook, The Patriot (with Mel Gibson), and Schindler's List.
I listen to: If I can't feel it, I don't listen to it, but Backstreet Boys and Tokio Hotel are long-time favorites.
Most Important Values: An open mind and equal rights. I believe strongly in the power of love. I don't believe people have orientations; I believe they have feelings.
I enjoy: Photography and literature (especially slash).
Future Plans: Haven't got it figured out yet, but it will include both photography and language arts. Here's a link to my photography portfolio: http://photographedtuesday.deviantart.com/
What I'm All About: Emotions and romance - everything that is denied, unusual, unexpected, or forbidden.

A Favorite Quote: "A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world." - Oscar Wilde

- I was able to finally see Tokio Hotel in concert on August 28, 2008 in Houston, Texas wth my girlfriend, Kimberly. It was the most amazing night of my life by far.
