Favorite Star Wars Character: Princess Leia

Why I Joined The Direct...

The opportunity to write about Star Wars and play a role in bringing news and content about that galaxy far, far away to fans is my dream job. I believe The Direct is something special and its a privilege to be a part of it. I'm excited to see what the future brings.
