Hi, I’m Griff, and I’m a ninth grader at the Santa Barbara Middle School.

This is my second time being in Teen Press. The first time, I was a star-struck 13 year old, and now I'm not. I'm now ready to take a more serious approach to journalism, and that's why I joined this group. I'm very excited to be heading off to Austin, and cannot wait to be interviewing anyone. I think this is a great experience, and I'm very excited to be a part of it.

A few things about me: I like films. I'm also into film making. I used to just watch movies for fun. I still do, but fun isn't following a plot as much as watching how a scene is laid out. I also like music and acting. I've combined those two traits to produce an original musical. Besides that, I just really like to hang out with friends and family.

Favorite Movie: Harold and Maude

Favorite Band(s): The Beatles and Vampire Weekend

Favorite Interview: (Though Painful) Tommy Lee Jones
