About the author


Copywriter, content writer, photographer, and actress who enjoys being lazy through the magic of video games, Netflix, and hiking, though the latter of which requires a buried willpower.


Talin went to school for mathematics, but decided to switch to an acting career halfway through. Against her parents wishes, she then moved to California to pursue this pipe dream, and is still, as some would say, "climbing through the trenches." She's also self-taught in photography, writing, and graphic design, since she believes that school is a financial sinkhole that society loves to promote.

Work History

Talin is lazy and doesn't feel like bragging about each and every employment opportunity that came her way. Rather, she'll leave you with the following, "I've written so much for companies that I'm begrudgingly sprinting toward full-blown arthritis."
