I’m an adjunct professor of English at Harper College. I currently live in Chicago where I write various and sundry things about superheroes, comic books, 80’s films, and other aspects of popular culture. I hold a BA in English from Roosevelt University and an MFA in Creative Writing, also from Roosevelt. I’m author of a forthcoming book on the comics of Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely (Sequart). My work has appeared in The Atlantic, Guernica, Jacobin, PopMatters, Salon, The New Humanism, and elsewhere.
