once bitten, twice shy is a newsletter dedicated to anything I find interesting. I’m Shy, but don’t worry—I don’t bite. I like to write about art, culture, and feelings. My main hobbies, I suppose, are video games, music, and manga. I write about music most often, which you can find in places like Pitchfork, Bandcamp Daily, and Tone Glow. Here, you’ll find the stuff that’s closest to my heart, written in my own voice.

Thanks for reading. It’ll be a good time. 💜
