IT'S MILAN DARLING, MILAN.

Remember that kid in middle school who was questionably shy and socially awkward. The kid you always thought was about to have a mental breakdown during their presentation in front of the entire class? I was that kid. Writing was always my outlet and now a' days I get to hide behind the screen and use my voice without fear of passing out in front of a full classroom. It's a win, win.

Fun Facts:

I was named after the city in Italy, not after the Disney Movie that came out when I was 8. No I don't have a Dragon and I don't want to defeat the Huns. (I'm not bitter at all...)

I have a dog. His name is Moose or Moo for short. He also answers to Goose.

Our combined name is Mil-oose, if you were wondering.

I hate sappy romantic movies but if you put La La Land on I will sit down with a value-size bottle of wine and cry every time I hear a piano solo.

On that note; my favorite shows are gory and gross like: American Horror Story, the Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. You know nothing John Snow.

Growing up I always wanted to be on my school's cheer team but was too afraid to try out, (socially awkward remember?), so I had to settle for watching Bring It On and cheering in front of the television while my chihuahua judged me from my hot pink bed spread.

I know Nicki Minaj's Anaconda by heart. The dance moves are all my own, however.

Do you feel like you know me yet? If not you can always check me out on social media, or message me and start a convo. Ask me about my public speaking horror stories; I bet they're worse than all your Tinder dating stories.
