The life, times, and assorted ramblings of your new favourite writer.

Who I Am

My name is Alex. I am a 23 year old aspiring journalist and I like writing, a lot – so I started a blog. Welcome.

2016 McMaster Convocation (2)

I was a student at McMaster University from 2012-2017, and in that time obtained two degrees: an MA in English and an HBA in English & Cultural Studies. I’ve presented at conferences at York, McMaster, and McGill.

I’m the drummer in the rock band Kill No Albatross. We’ve recorded an EP with producer Wayne Cochrane (Protest the Hero, Alexisonfire) and played shows across Canada. Visit our website.

I also run a second blog, on which I review music. It’s called Rolodex Darko, and you can check it out here.
