Biography:
After receiving an MA studying the anthropology of popular culture, I decided academia wasn't for me. I turned to podcasting to review television, movies, and explain why different facets of popular culture matter. After a year of podcasting, I turned to writing out my reviews and quickly made press lists to review films. Not only to I review films, but I analyze their impact and attempt to see beyond my own genre biases.
