Last Good Movie You Saw: Hell or High Water
What's your Earliest Memory? When I woke up one morning and a puppy was on my bed kicking my face, the day my parents had brought home our dog.
When And Where Were You Happiest? Wherever I am building a strong relationship with a person, where I am writing and making complex characters, and when I am watching a great film.
Name Your Ideal Dinner Party of 5? Oh that's hard. Robert Downey JR, George Clooney, Sam Rockwell, Martin Freeman, and Tom Hanks if I want to be entertained. Christopher Nolan, Steven Spielberg, Vince Gilligan, Aaron Sorkin, and Noah Hawley if I wanted to learn about film and TV. Robert Kirkman, Gail Simone, Mark Millar, Brian K Vaughan, and Neil Gaiman if I wanted to talk about comic books and literature.
What did Your Parents Do? My dad works on the tarmac for US Airways and my mom is a creative designer of sort for an office supply company.
How Do You Relax? I read a lot of comic books and watch a lot of films. My biggest aspiration in life is to be in charge of a writer's room, so I spend a lot of time outlining and developing ideas for television and films, not just comic books. I find writing far more relaxing than most activities.
Tell Us 3 Secrets About You: These aren't really secrets but I have never been in a relationship before, I had a speech impediment for most of my life up to high school, and also I am a follower of Christ first and foremost. Again, not really secrets, but things a lot of people on the Internet don't know about me.
