Who’s ewink?

Hello! I Am ewink, a/k/a Erin!

My name is Erin Winking. I use the pronouns he/him. It’s not because I am super woke or anything, but while I like my Irish name, in emails and whatnot, it can cause confusion and has made for some very awkward blind dates and anonymous truck stop hookups.

I am a visual storyteller and until recently, a television news photojournalist by trade. I recently moved back to my hometown in order to give web development for money a shot! My goal in life is to be a storyteller of all sorts. I want to write books, make scripted television shows, and maybe even movies.

I enjoy, as a hobby, working on websites. I’ve loved doing it since websites were actually something that you had to be somewhat important to have, back in my high school days oh those many years ago in 1993-94ish.

I also enjoy photography, I’m addicted to anime (Japanese animation), and online video games like Star Trek Online and for some reason, I really like Cities: Skylines, Sim City, and The Sims. I think I like The Sims because I can make a little virtual me and actually get a girlfriend in that game. Of course, if I spent the amount of time I spend playing that game getting a pretend girlfriend exercising, I could likely get a real girlfriend.

I’d appreciate it if you’d not point out my logical flaws here, thank you.

I’m from Springfield, Illinois, but I have lived in several places across the country, ranging from St. Paul, Minnesota; Las Vegas, Nevada; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Tacoma, Washington; and now, as mentioned before, back in Springfield.

I both hate and love our current political climate as I have turned ‘arguing on the internet’ into a sport of sorts. While I won’t do it everywhere, I do love to get into a good CAPS LOCK RAWR match with folks I don’t even know!

If you want to know more about me, hit me up on Twitter! You can also check out FUNKDAFIED’s home on Facebook – ewink’s FUNKDAFIED anime facebook page. I personally don’t accept random Facebook requests because of SPAM and because it’s bad enough that you people get to see this side of me.

Thanks for stopping by and if you have any complaints, comments, or suggestions, I’d love to hear (read) them!
