Keri Ferencz

Keri Ferencz has a Master's degree in Popular Culture & is fully aware that this means she may never have a grown-up job. One of her favourite activities is spending an entire day at the cinema, and so she's very excited to be writing about movies for boxofficeBUZ. Her writing has also appeared on Pop Matters & Gaga Stigmata. Follow her adventures on Twitter at @keri_lotion.
