Throughout my life, I've loved to make things. Even as a child, I made anything from unintentionally grotesque clay figures to terrible stop motion movies (including what I consider the original Lego Movie). Embarrassingly, I even went through a dancing phase where I forced my younger brother to perform coordinated dances with me, set to ABBA, in front of my parents. One day, I will be blackmailed with home video footage from that time. 

So when I realized that I can have a career based around writing and making things, I was all in, ready for a life of blank pages and creative challenges.
