    About Me

    I am a writer, a cultural critic and the author of Working On a Dream: The Progressive Political Vision of Bruce Springsteen (Continuum Books). I graduated from the University of St. Francis in Joliet, Illinois in 2007 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science, and am currently a graduate student in English Studies and Communication at Valparaiso University. Throughout 2007 and 2008, I wrote a weekly political column for the Herald News in Joliet, Illinois. My work has also appeared in several other Chicago area newspapers, and Z Magazine. On the web, I have written features for PopMatters, and occasional or single columns for Daily Yonder, Common Dreams New Center, Pop and Politics, and PopPolitics. I pride myself on the following unverifiable claim; I am the only writer to have been published in both the Catholic Worker and the Humanist. My first book, Working On a Dream: The Progressive Political Vision of Bruce Springsteen, is published by Continuum Books and available now. I believe in love, service, subtle subversion, and rock ‘n’ roll. I do not trust people who don’t like the Rolling Stones, and refuse to buy an I-Pod.
