I grew up in a small town in Indiana, always knowing that I would outgrow it. As I made my moves from high school to college, I worked summers at a small theme park in Santa Claus, IN and graduated nearly a year early from ISU. My last semester was spent studying film abroad in Auckland, New Zealand, and when I came back, the economy had taken a turn for the worst. Graduating in 2008 with a BS in Radio-TV-Film, I felt doomed to live on Ramen or live back with my parents. But, as it turned out, my luck changed almost a year later, and I fell into a good paying job... but it left me unsatisfied. So, now with a little capital, I'm making my exodus from small-town-indianadom and headed for the mean streets of Austin, TX. The town known for it's music, movies, and keeping it weird. All of which I plan to explore, and document to share!
