Originally from the Midwest, I graduated from Park University with a BA in journalism with a theatre minor, and am currently attending the University of Southern California for my master's degree in Specialized Journalism: The Arts. I have spent over 20 years volunteering for various arts organizations, including almost 15 years (7 of which as associate editor) with the all-volunteer performing arts magazine "KC Stage".
I have a passion for the performing arts (primarily theatre) as well as nerdy/geeky things, mostly TV and movies such as the trinity of SuperWhoLock (Supernatural, Doctor Who, and Sherlock), the Marvel movies, and anything by Joss Whedon. I like to read, write, play video games, and watch TV & movies. I love listening to podcasts (especially "Welcome to Night Vale" and "The Thrilling Adventure Hour"), and also love new experiences.
