About Me

Here’s part of what I look like, I don’t like taking photos of my face often.

Hello, my name is Fabian Garcia. I am currently a full-time student at UC San Diego and I really like to write. I’m 20-years-old and I made this site for college and to share my opinions. I want to pursue a career in journalism and I figured this website would be good practice. I write mostly about media.

In the past I have attempted to look through entertainment from an analytical standpoint, exposing the finer details that may be lost on most casual viewers and enhancing the overall experience these productions generate. However, as of late I’ve turned toward a more news-oriented way of writing after working for various papers. 

“Turn off the Bright Lights” has no official meaning. It’s a play on the Interpol album Turn on the Bright Lights but you’re welcome to interpret it however you’d like.

I’ve tried to keep a consistent schedule writing here, but I have a lot of responsibilities outside of this website that sadly must take precedent over it.

I still occasionally write for a small startup called Scriberr News, you can read my work by clicking here.

I recently joined my college newspaper The UCSD Guardian, you can read my work there by clicking here

Please feel free to follow this website via email, it’s super easy and helps me out a lot!

Thank you for your time. Now please, turn off the bright lights.
