I'm an unceasing student of history, theatre, the English language, American politics, you name it.  I hold the firm opinion that what Socrates said is indeed true...that "the unexamined life is not worth living."  I recently received my MA in history, and I'm always on the search for what makes history interesting to ordinary people.  I'm also intrigued by new media's potential to make subjects like history come alive in fresh and exciting ways.
