About Me

About Me

I’m originally from Auckland, New Zealand and am currently undertaking a PhD in English at the University of Notre Dame. I love to read and I watch far too many tv programmes for my own good. I feel slightly ambivalent about Freud, I love the blog Hyperbole and a Half and I live off cheese and pasta.
