Liam Volke

Liam is a writer and actor with a BFA from the University of Victoria. His lifelong love affair with film began when he saw Jaws at the appropriate age of 4. He liked it so much that he set out to draw a storyboard for Jaws 2, only to discover to his disappointment years later that somebody had already beaten him to the punch. His next love affair was with Star Wars and Jurassic Park, which he watched at least once a day, much to the chagrin of his parents. Liam has written for online publications such as The West of West Review, and Numero Cinq, and keeps a blog on arts and culture called The Tower of Babble.
