Experience

TJ has been loving and absorbing pop culture since his earliest days. After college he moved to New York to work for Wizard Entertainment, first in the research department and then as the associate editor of ToyFare. With Wizard's magazines declining, Dietsch made the transition to freelance writing, working on pieces for Marvel, Maxim, MTV, Comic Book Resources, Fandom, Topless Robot, and plenty of others. In the ensuing decade-plus, he's covered conventions, done interviews, and penned research pieces on comics, television, movies and collectibles.

Education

Dietsch attended Ohio Wesleyan University where he studied creative writing, literature and classics. In addition to learning the basics, he put them to good use analyzing classic literature through the lens of pop culture.
