Ripe Mangoes

2017 - 
Ripe Mangoes Site

Ripe Mangoes is a space where I write reviews, essays and analysis on various forms of entertainment. While the website was initially created to discus manga, a form of graphic novel, it soon expanded to video games and animation among other things.

Some of my writing from Ripe Mangoes has also been adapted into Youtube videos. As a way to further develop my writing, I enjoy testing it out within different mediums.
