I am a native of Baltimore County, where I attended Pikesville Senior High School. I studied creative writing at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.
My Interests

I love movies and swear by Powell & Pressburger, Max Ophuls, Eric Rohmer, and Caol Reed. I am devoted to the Mary Tyler Moore Show. This is the best job I've ever had.
