Important "Research Trip" to Fenway, Summer 2010

I’m a Ph.D. Candidate in Mass Media & Communication at Temple University currently living in Brooklyn. My dissertation research is on mythology, ritual, identity and social memory in media coverage of Red Sox Nation from 2003-2005.

I have an M.A. in Journalism and Mass Communication from the University of Georgia and a B.A. in Journalism from New York University and have held editorial positions at Seventeen magazine and MJI Interactive.

My sports loyalties are what I refer to as “Bosadelphian” — Baseball: Red Sox and Phillies, Football: Patriots and Eagles. The only New York team I allow myself to recognize and support is the New York Red Bulls: Soy Del Metro!
