I hold a Ph.D. from UC Irvine in English and an A.B. from Stanford in something that is hard to explain and sounds kinda fake. I am also a once and current freelance writer, having written for a bunch of music publications that went out of business before I got back into it last year. My intellectual interests, aside from the post academic, include race, literature, and cultural studies. In addition to cranking out Post Academic, I’m the Interim Managing Editor of Amerasia Journal and a Features Editor for PopMatters.
