Hey, I'm Jude. I'm really excited to develop my own journalistic skills and cooperate team work abilities. I love all things artistic, and the weirder something is, the better. I'm also a huge reader, especially sci-fi. I don't really have a whole lot to talk about myself, but some people who inspire me are Albert Camus, Anthony Bourdain, Sylvia Plath, and, my cat, Ira. I really enjoy listening to people's stories and my goal is to further tell these stories to an audience. Thanks! :)
