Hi! I'm a 17-year-old theater nerd in my last year of high school. I'm also a film geek or more formally known as an aspiring filmmaker. Both acting and filmmaking have been something close to my heart, and I'm glad that I found these passions at such a young age. So bottom line: I'm a geek and a nerd which makes me Top Dork, and if this were a cliché teenage movie, I'd be the one who gets the guy in the end.
