I'm a doctoral student in Textual Studies and a literature instructor at a large university in Tennessee. I love Southern Literature and Modern/Contemporary Drama. I am interested in moderate liberal politics, reading, travel, ethnic food, vintage collections, vinyl, and black and white photography. Marcy Goldman's A Passion for Baking is my bible. Amy Sedaris's I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence is every kitsch kitchen cook's must-have.
