You may have seen her in some of the recent meeting livestreams, but we wanted to introduce you finally! Amber Miles is our new writing consultant! She's here to help us with our research papers and grant writing and we're so excited to have her on board and introduce her to everyone!
What is your name?
Reginald Winklhaus III or if you’re going by my street name it’s Amber Miles.
What did you study in school and what do you wish to do in the future?
I studied English and Film. One day it would be nice to entertain the masses with some witty words in the form of a film or a novel.
What drove you to STEM-VRSE?
Dane’s desperation…just kidding! STEM-VRSE teeters on the edge of some incredibly exciting adventures. I wanted to be part of the perpetual motion machine and help propel STEM-VRSE into the future while helping to create a lasting legacy for VR integration in education and research.
What do you want to learn while working with STEM-VRSE?
I would like to come away with a better knowledge of other people’s writing processes so I can learn more about my own abilities and skills. I will be working closely with different people, and want to take away as much knowledge as I can while I am with STEM-VRSE.
What kind of science or literature interests you the most?
SPACE! THE FINAL FRONTIER! All jokes aside, the expansive nothingness and somethingness of space both terrifies and intrigues me.
In literature, I am a purveyor of both critical and garbage works. Which means I love novels that no one cares about that they make you read in school, but I can also read a 150,000 word fanfic in one sitting and still crave more.
If you could live anywhere, where would you live?
In the middle of nowhere Scotland, atop a hill, miles from the nearest person, in a house that was built in the late 1700’s, and is not haunted. But also contains every modern convenience, and the best internet money can afford. I already have the house picked out, I just need £1.6 Million.
If you could get a chance to rewrite any famous work of fiction, which one would you choose to do over?
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, but only to change those awful names of Harry’s children. Yeesh.
