I’m Chuck Tryon, assistant professor of film and media studies at Fayetteville State University.

I’ve also been known to frequent Diigo and Twitter. I’m also lucky enough to be married to the Coolest Wife Ever, Andrea Biondi, with whom I have traveled to Spain and Colombia. We also were crazy enough to celebrate our first New Years Eve together in Times Square. I’m also an avid runner and try to compete in a half marathon or two every year. Finally, I make a pretty mean sesame seared tuna, if you’re ever in the neighborhood.
