Jen is a writer for The Direct who deeply enjoys writing, especially about things that she's passionate about. Her non-MCU and Star Wars interests include action figures, sitcoms, and making the perfect peanut butter and banana sandwich. She also does market research, part time.

Favorite MCU movie: It’s so difficult for me to choose a favorite and it changes often, but right now, it would be Avengers: Age of Ultron. There’s just something special about how the team works together in it.

Favorite MCU character - Peter Parker, because at his core, he’s just a good kid trying very hard to do the right thing, even when it might be inconvenient or dangerous.

Favorite Star Wars movie: Empire Strikes Back has always been my favorite, just due to its masterful overall quality. 

Favorite Star Wars character - C-3PO. From the age of five, I’ve just always been utterly captivated by him and R2-D2.

Why I joined The Direct - I have been a hardcore Marvel Cinematic Universe fan almost since its very inception and could easily write paragraphs upon paragraphs about it, so The Direct is an excellent outlet for me. Beyond that, I have a commitment to quality journalism and content as well as to providing fans with accurate, up-to-date information.
