Emma is a Grade-A pop culture nerd. Aside from garnering her a one-time win on Jeopardy!, she's parlayed that passion into a career⁠—interviewing everyone from Emma Thompson to Yorgos Lanthimos. She has produced extensive coverage of TIFF, Comic-Con, and D23, and has been featured on/in eTalk, The Mary Sue, Cineplex Magazine, Smart Entertainment, MuchMusic, CTV's PopLife, CityTV's Breakfast Television, and more.

If she's not watching movies or TV, she's probably planning another trip to London or watching another British panel show.
