I was born and raised outside of Boston, and graduated from Tufts University with a degree in Japanese history. Now I live in Los Angeles, where I am the senior editor for Nerdist. My first book, 100 Things Avengers Fans Should Know and Do Before They Die,is available now.
My work has also appeared on TOKYOPOP, StarWars.com and McSweeney's; I interview people on the Nerdist Channel, host The Dan Cave; co-host the Today We Learned podcast, occasionally appear on AMC Movie Talk, Fox News' Tech Take, and Smosh Games,
I also have no sense of smell. I am waiting on my handicapped parking sticker, to no avail.
