Thomas John Magnus
Rachel Bullock is a senior at SUNY Oswego, with a creative writing major and a biology minor. She has taken many art classes in high school and college, and experimented with many different mediums. Her favorite fictional character is Rosemary Cooke from Karen Joy Fowler’s novel We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves.
Britina Cheng is completing her final year at Geneseo as an English major. She is working on a film featuring women of color without catering to the white cisgender male psyche. In another dimension, she and Jimmy Brooks would be buddies. Maybe they would even date.
Anna Gilmore is a student at SUNY Fredonia, completing her BFA in animation and illustration, with a minor in art history. She enjoys writing short fiction, poetry, and creating art.
Kira Gregory is a sophomore at SUNY Polytechnic Institute studying media and communications. When she’s not at school she is digging in her gardens, playing guitar, or watching the night sky. She has made a tradition of participating in NaNoWriMo. If Kira were to befriend a fictional character, it just might be Stellaluna.
Thomas John Magnus is a junior biology/geography double major at SUNY Geneseo. He got into photography at the end of this summer, taking walks outside to train his eyes in color and composition. To him, a good photograph incorporates story, subjectivity, and emotion. Andy Warhol, Christian Anderson, Alfred Steiglitz, Andre Kertesz, Keith Walters, and his cousin Dillon Buss, all inspire him.
Brandon Mark is a senior physics major at SUNY Geneseo. He grew up in Warwick, New York, a small town in the downstate area. Brandon is looking to pursue a master’s degree in mechanical engineering with a focus in design and alternative energy. In his spare time (ha ha) he enjoys taking photos, drawing, hiking, and hanging out with his dog, Stanley.
Catherine McWilliams is an aspiring artist and senior English (creative writing) major at SUNY Geneseo. As a life-long nap enthusiast, Catherine commonly falls asleep while reading next to a piping hot jar of tea. When she isn’t napping, Catherine spends her time taking photographs, studying art, drawing strangers and leisurely reading.
Jessica Rigby is studying liberal arts at Clinton Community College and is Secretary of the Student Senate. She has several works published in CCC’s Cliffhanger. Her passion is performance. She greatly enjoys music and theatre and performs in a music and comedy duo called Super Super Serious Please Don’t Laugh Band.
Sarah Simon’s interests include photography, poetry, and working with people. As a psychology major, Sarah enjoys breaking from the subjective by studying the general human mind.
Savannah Skinner is a senior at SUNY Geneseo. She has answered this question multiple times, and is accruing a lot of fictional best friends. She’d probably choose someone who doesn’t seem like the jealous type. Charlie Bucket, perhaps, due his generosity and his lifetime supply of Wonka candy.
