Bio

I am only an average man but, by George, I work harder at it than the average man. Theodore Roosevelt

In college, overachiever Christopher McKittrick double-majored in Film and English because he loves to read, write, and watch movies. He must not have learned his lesson, because he later earned a Master’s degree in English. Since then Chris – who was born and raised on Long Island, New York and currently lives in Queens – has managed to make a living with three degrees that rank relatively low on the “earning potential” list.

When he’s not getting into trouble in New York City, you can either find him working with his students at St. John’s University or writing. He is a published author of fiction and non-fiction, a contributor to entertainment websites, and has spoken about literature, film, and comic books at various conferences across the country. Chris and his work have been quoted in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Newsday, USAToday.com, Time.com, RollingStone.com, and dozens of entertainment and news websites.
