Arizona born and raised, I am a graduate student in English Literature at Arizona State. I pay the bills keeping the books for H&R Block, tutoring, and teaching SAT prep. You could describe me as a redneck bookworm with an unhealthy obsession with pop culture. In my academic work, I try to tie these elements together by focusing on Shakespeare's relationship to popular culture and film studies. On this site, I basically try to do the same thing, but in a much more free-wheeling (some would say incoherent) manner.
