Lover of good marketing campaigns, Disneyland, and all things Community, Arrested Development, and Doctor Who.

Red Band Society looks like the type of show where you’ll fall in love with these kids who have had to deal with too much in their life and when things start to look up by the end of the season, one is going to unexpectedly die and you’re going to cry your eyes out and hate yourself for watching. I’ll call it the “Grey’s Anatomy effect”.
1) People like to laugh at how much I love TV and Movies. What’s so wrong about liking TV? TV and Movies actually help me relate to and understand people better because, as the saying goes, art imitates life. The shows I watch have a deeper meaning to me as well. Everyone knows I love Community and they think it’s not much deeper than just a comedy about weird people in a weird school. But Community is about failures, rejects, and oddballs trying to get their life back together. They find each other and help each other grow and the reason this all takes place in a community college is because a community college will always accept you. I think that’s beautiful.
2) I got my sarcasm from 4 people. Fed (college friend), Garrett (ex co-worker), Jim Halpert (The Office), and Jeff Winger (Community). So you can blame them if you ever wonder why I’m so sarcastic.
3) Before Troy Bolton and before Finn Hudson from Glee, I was playing football and singing in musicals in high school. I played almost every sport (baseball for 8 years, soccer for 3, basketball for 1, volleyball for 6, and football for 4) growing up and in high school I decided to try drama and then try out for Annie Get Your Gun, our school’s musical that year. I fell in love with acting, but I still loved sports. There’s a rush you get from both. That moment in football when you make a great block and you can see the running back zoom past you behind your back. Or in volleyball when someone spikes it and you dig the ball up perfectly to the setter. But Acting is a different rush. When you’re on stage and you can’t see the audience and for a few hours you get to be somebody else who has a different set of problems. That was a great rush too. sometimes when i watch football or a play, i can imagine what it feels like. That feeling right before the game starts and the football is in the air during the kickoff. or when you’re sitting backstage and the overture is playing and you taking one last breath and get into character.
4) My favorite place to be (other than Disneyland) are airports. I like being 2 hours early for my flight just so I can sit or explore airports. I love it. Airports are a place of adventure, of love, and of goodbyes. Everyone has a story at an airport. Some people are in long distance relationships and are saying goodbye to their girlfriend and promising they’ll make it work. Some are newlyweds ready to not only embark on a journey through southeast Asia, but through life together. Some are businessmen or businesswomen traveling to close that final sale so they can afford the house they’re dreaming of. Some are soldiers coming home for Christmas and the first people they wanted to see is their parents. Everyone has a story at an airport.
5) If i wasn’t so scared I’d move to LA and try my shot at being an actor. My dream is to have a funny role in a Dan Harmon tv show.
Everyday Objects With Faces Are Awesome
When you walk around and look at everything around you, chances are, you may see a face. It may be human, it may be an animal, but sometimes you can see faces in inanimate objects. This is called Pareidolia: Seeing faces in random things!
Is there a job out there for someone who is good at being sarcastic, can talk about TV and movies and can quote them at a moment’s notice, and can memorize lyrics to their favorite rap songs? Please let me know. Thanks!
