One-Line Bio

Writer, artist, brainstormer, podcaster, culture enthusiast, compassion advocate.


Marissa Flaxbart, aka Me, graduated from the University of Chicago in 2005 with a degree in Cinema and Media Studies. She used to think that she was not a "film major" type. She was wrong. As an avid writer and obsessive moviegoer with a fancy-sounding degree from a prestigious university and a profound love of the internet, she had no recourse but to create a beautiful blog with an ingeniuous name. Thus cineplexus was born. PopSent came along a bit later, when she realized that there was so much more to blog about than movies! It serves as a homepage/catch-all for posts about life in general, popular culture, and stuff written for cineplexus, Sweet Valley Diaries, and other sites.
