About Me

Um… why are you on this page when you could just <i.read the damn blog and see what I’m about? Okay, fine, I guess I’ll share.

My name is Calhoun Kersten, born and raised in Wyoming, Ohio. Desperate for “anything but here,” I fled to Chicago where I did my undergrad and Master’s in film/video. After that, I decided to head to where they make films… Los Angeles, if you didn’t pick up on that… LA hasn’t really grown on me, so I’m off to Brooklyn all the while entertaining delusions that I might be able to make a living as a writer.

On to the frivolous stuff…

My favorite flavor of Pez is orange.

I love the feel of new socks.

I sing in the shower.

I have a crippling fear of calling Asian restaurants.

I’m impressed by anyone who’s actually read this far.

Any other questions, feel free to ask.

  1. I feel your higher education debt-filled pain. And I love that you can’t call Asian restaurants easily…ordering takeout food from a person who you’re not certain is getting your order right can be a scary experience…

  2. Thank you for sharing. I also enjoy your writing. At least I enjoy it so far. Good luck with your post-grad aspirations. I’m thinking about getting a graduate degree in Creative writing myself. Of course I have also considered playwrighting. I’m a theatre nerd. I also used to write movie reviews so i respect anyone who undertakes that endeavor.

  3. This is a new blog for you, right? I’ve been wondering where you had gone.

    My father used to make us order Chinese food over the phone as children. It doesn’t scare me anymore. Not kidding.
