So, what “auspicious writeup” can I jumble up for you all now? A writer, a lover of all things Star Trek, a word magician with a vision… too much? Yup. These are all things (sort of) about me.
I graduated a Comp Lit and World Lit BA a few years back after which I dabbled in American Studies where I got my MA degree after writing my thesis on, you guessed it, Star Trek.
Now seriously – I love Star Trek not just because it’s space, although I love that too – it’s scientific fiction. Not laser-sword fantasy. It’s based on complex interactions between humanity and full colorful spectrum of infinitely diverse alien cultures.
And the main conflict usually isn’t about who got the biggest gun. It’s about science, exploration, letting yourself dream that one day you too could diplomatically negotiate a peace treaty between five different alien species on a far-off planet. That’s Star Trek!
It’s about asking yourself: what would you do if a rebel officer decided to attack your ships, even though you’re both humans. Would you threaten to attack them back? But they’re humans too! Would you attack humans to protect an alien race from going to war with another alien race? WOULD YOU?! That’s Star Trek!
I also love other stuff geeky: from Star Wars to the MCU, Game of Thrones, to lots and lots of video games, and don’t forget books and comics, and movies. Oh, and I co-host the Melting Potter Podcast with Andreea – where I also make the music!
You’ll probably see me write about a little bit of everything! Hit me up wherever – I’m there.
