Rachel Balik

Spilling out of college and into New York City with a wildly useful degree in English, Philosophy and Theater, Rachel has pursued some mix of all three at varying points while maintaining a consistent passion for writing and the study of aesthetics. Finally settling into a day job as an "Internet Librarian"/staff writer at findingDulcinea.com, Rachel nurtures her passion for stories, music and colorful non-fiction as a book reviewer. She is committed to investigating the political and emotional role of art in society, and makes her own stories, music, and theater whenever possible. Rachel also offers "Relevant Irreverence for The Internet Age" at wickedwitchoftheweb.blogspot.com. Her favorite word to overuse is "meta".
