the last of six kids, I was born & raised in a suburb of atlanta. I went to college for english / journalism, but quit. a couple years later, I went back for an art degree... I quit that as well. learning that my heart is in creating too much to be stuck inside a classroom - at least for now. I am an introvert, but I play an extrovert really well. people & stories are my passion. I think the internet is really really cool, but there's so much more to life, like being kind & making eye contact with your waitress. I am a big fan of abraham lincoln, astronauts, & everything dinosaurs. I believe in grace, hope, & jesus. I spend most of my money on books, even though most of them are dogeared somewhere in the middle. my top three most used emojis are: confetti, peace sign, & fist bump. some people drink to forget their problems, I go to the movie theatre to get away from mine. a few of my top favorite movies are - in no specific order: water for elephants, frances ha, odd life of timothy green, a single man, grand budapest, great gatsby, extremely loud & incredibly close, benjamin button, & a few chick flicks I don't want to talk about because i'm trying to keep my "street cred". my home is currently in Atlanta, Ga, but I don't like staying in one place too long. I love airports & airplanes & public transportation & taxi drivers that mumble & running to catch trains & tasting new food. but most of all, I love meeting new people, & I can't wait to meet you. cheers, sterling!
