Hello, my name is Clayton Ashley and I’m currently obtaining a Bachelors degree in Journalism at the University of Kansas. I’m interested primarily in video and have created many for work, school and just for fun and you can see some of them by clicking on the My Videos page of this blog. I’ve gotten to do a couple cool things with my video experience, like making a 16mm film with my friends and living in New York city while I was the video intern at Talking Points Memo. Less interestingly, I spend way too much time on the Internet and created this website in order to have something to show for it. I mostly use it to post all the amazing, hilarious and obscure things I find on the web, but also as a personal journal and a place to highlight the projects I’m involved in. I’m always happy to hear your comments, questions or concerns.
The name Rax Dakkar is simply the nonsense name I always used for my videogame characters because it was never taken. I think it came from a random name generator in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (yes, I’m a nerd).
