Oliver Barnfield, Video Editor

This will be my second year for student press and first as a video editor. I love writing and talking about movies, music, video games, and other things I care way too much about.  My taste tends to skew towards anything odd or underrated. Be sure to check out Friendcast, a podcast I host with my friends Zach and Reagan. Although we try to talk about movies and video games our discussions inevitably spiral downward into a flurry of weirdness, particularly in conversations centered around popular Japanese cartoon character Anpan Man.
