  • An Ode to One of my Geek Icons

    Hey everyone! Hope you’re all having a good week.

    Check out my latest column here. I wanted to provide everyone with a distraction from all the talk about that illness which must not be named. As such, I wrote a tribute to one of my geek icons, Kevin Smith. I had fun writing this piece, and I focused on how Smith’s work and his origin story inspired me.

    Here’s an excerpt: “While diving into Smith’s movies, television work, and graphic novels, I was an aspiring creator trying to navigate adult life with a disability. There were times when SMA seemed like an unstoppable hindrance. My defective muscle-brain communication system can claw itself to the forefront of every area of my life, if I allow it to.”

    Do you have any takeaways from this column? Do you have any creative people who you look up to?
