FAQ

Luke Gorham is first but not foremost a full-time part-time writer. He makes his living as a reference librarian and IT specialist at a public library, but in his online life he is the current Film Editor at In Review Online, and has been a professional consort to Sam C. Mac since the latter's teenage years. Luke has operated as an arts critics since college, predominantly reviewing film but also dipping his toes into music and literature criticism as the fancy struck him. He has primarily set up shot at In Review Online, but has contributed to various online and print publications including The Playlist and the Review Atlas, among others. He also co-hosted the one-time and possibly once-more Oscar podcast Chasing Gold. He often find that he makes people say, "Oh no he didn't!" But he did. And they know it.
