Kourtney Paranteau earned her B.A. in English Literature from Portland State University in 2008. It was there that she met Macy Todd, her co-host of CuteMeat.com, a blog and podcast dedicated to diachronic film criticism.
Since seeing her first Cary Grant film, Kourtney has kept her focus firmly on classic Hollywood pictures but also enjoys keeping film-violence, genre-horror, contemporary Korean cinema and George Clooney in her peripheral.
She now lives with her dog, Topper, in Athens, Ohio where she is pursuing a M.A. in Film Studies.
