After what feels like a decade attending college, I have graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a Bachelor's of Arts in English, with a concentration in Creative Writing. I also acquired the coveted Highest Distinction, having completed a Senior Thesis project based around the Prohibition Era.

My educational experiences, mixed with the wealth of information I have obtained through my coursework, have been invaluable, even if college only seems less frustrating in hindsight than it actually was at the time. My interest in Christopher Marlowe, William Shakespeare and Edgar Allan Poe increased thanks to my time at UIC; not coincidentally, each of my next three dramatic projects involve one of these iconic writers.
