To me, pop culture is the stuff of life. It helps me to figure out why things are the way they are and why people do the things they do. I curate a political news and information widget called PoliticsChatter for the Sun Times Network. I review movies for Halfstack Magazine and I write essays about film and television for Gurulife.
I am a recent graduate of Truman State University, the "Harvard of the Midwest" or "Princeton of the Prairie" depending on which t-shirt slogan you adhere to. Narratives in general are my thing. They can be cinematic, musical, literary, political, or anything else. I soak them in, dissect them and try to learn what makes them tick. I want everything to be as good as it can be, and to my mind, the only way to do so is to pick apart every aspect and build up.
