I'm a student at Judge Memorial Catholic High School in Salt Lake City, Utah. I am a passionate filmmaker, writer, and actor, and find myself fascinated by the human psyche, the origins of existence, and other unanswered questions that may be answered with brutal truth or a fantastic, fictional movie/book/play of my imaginings. I am currently reading "Brave New World" by Aldous Huxley.
