about me

I’m Ben Parker, a 19-year-old movie buff who lives on a small farm in Northern Vermont. (The above picture, from June 2021, was captured near one of the area’s beautiful bike trails. I was 17 at the time.)

I used to upload my work on a site named Cool Cat Studio, then moved here because a) WordPress’s site design fit my goals far better than Weebly’s, and b) most of my work there isn’t very good, so I wanted to distance myself from it a little. Despite not being very proud of it, much of my writing there was also published on Teen Ink, where it was pretty consistently greeted with Editors’ Choice awards. (Some of my very old poetry is there as well, but generally, it’s even more difficult not to cringe at)

On more than a few occasions, my music reviews were even granted a spot in the site’s magazine, but my central interests now lie in photography and film writing. Recently, I’ve even begun submitting to Teen Ink again, which I’ll still be able to do until I turn 20. Until then, any reviews from 2023 onwards will also be uploaded to my profile there.
