The Paper Cut

Alexzander (AJ) Braaten
AJ is a senior at Sahuaro High School but this is his first year at The Paper Cut. He is a big fan of music, sports, photography, and movies. He has ambitions of going to GCU to become a cinematographer and travel around the world taking videos and exploring life outside of Tucson. Despite having a father in the military, he has lived in Tucson most of his life and wants to move away from Arizona as soon as he is done with college, preferably to somewhere cooler. He is a die-hard rock fan, loves action/adventure movies, and is a fan of all Pittsburgh sports teams. Music is a major part of his life - although never playing any instruments, he has gone to multiple large concerts and taken photos for local bands. He mostly finds himself listening to alt-rock, instrumentals, hard rock, psychedelic rock, and classic rock. While not considering himself much of a gamer, he often finds himself playing open-world adventure games. He is always trying to do something new that is productive and wants to thrive in The Paper Cut, reporting only the truth.
