About Me

I graduated from Grinnell College with a B.A. in English in 1997 and also have a B.A. in Communication/Film Studies and M.A. in Journalism from the University of Iowa. I was a film critic for The Daily Iowan for two years before moving to Chicago in the fall of 2002. I also hosted a weekly film talk show, "Burn Hollywood Burn," on 89.7 KRUI in Iowa City. I am married with two kids - Holden, 4 and Sophie, 1 1/2.
