  • Known to fish obscure details out of the blue, Silas is a trivia fanatic who specializes in the topics of fine arts, literature, and pop culture.

Experience

Silas got his start with news and review writing through EMU's student-led newspaper, The Weather Vane. While getting involved in page editing, proofreading, website production, and leadership as co-editor-in-chief of the paper, his favorite role was always writing film reviews. For his senior capstone project, Silas explored the filmmaking process from screenplay conception to final cut. The experience gave him a deeper appreciation for the process and only reinforced a passion for future creative storytelling projects.

Education

Silas received his bachelor's in both mathematics and computer science at Eastern Mennonite University, two majors that lend themselves well to an affinity for science fiction, as well as an analytical appreciation for the patterns and relationships that make up all types of storytelling. A minor in music sprang from his deep love for film and video game soundtracks.
