"...As a result, I became well-educated in both classic literature as well as contemporary literary theory focusing on a variety of topics such as gender, media, class and social structure, and an assortment of other theories and topics (all of which I'd love to chat about if given the opportunity). In my downtime, I love exploring and trying new things (mainly food) and I'm an avid animal lover. Here's some additional trivia about me: I was originally born in Texas (Air Force family) Trying new restaurants is one of my favorite activities Favorite movie: The Right Stuff (that Air Force family clearly had an impact on me...) Favorite book(s): Nothing compares to the Harry Potter series, in my humble opinion Favorite animal: My two golden retrievers, Logan and Skylar (though my cats make a decent bid for this vote) Favorite TV show: Mad Men (nope, my company doesn't make it - but I'm genuinely hooked on this series) I warmly encourage you to contact me! I look forward to meeting you..."
