BA History and English Textual Studies, Syracuse University

I am interested in early American history (my undergrad thesis examined the lives of early 19th century American sailors) as well as medieval European history.  As an undergrad I really enjoyed any opportunity to study literature through a historical lens.  In this context I am interested in the classics, the English Romantic movement and 20th century cosmic horror.  I also appreciate finding historical background in my hobbies, particularly video games and professional wrestling.
