Despite being a freelance writer and editor of nearly a decade, I can’t bring myself to engage in any pragmatic topics. Instead, I’m too busy writing about movies, comic books, or any other fandom that enables my reluctance to grow up. I’m currently the longest tenured writer of a Batman news website and I occasionally post on my own blog.

My Harry Potter journey began in 2000 at the age of six with my parents reading it to me. It sparked a passion for fantasy, Latin, and Arthurian literature, leading me to pursue a bachelor’s in English at the University of Chicago and a master’s in Medieval Literatures and Cultures at the University of Edinburgh. My senior thesis and master’s dissertation were about medievalism in Potter, and I produce MuggleNet’s academic podcast, Potterversity. I’m from New York City and love theatre, science fiction, and trivia. I accomplished a geeky life goal when I appeared on Jeopardy!.
