The Red Ledger

Joe Cross
Joe Cross is a senior at Lovejoy High School, a coffee enthusiast, and, most importantly, a film and music obsessive. He can often be spotted wandering the hallways, headphones in, wearing a band t-shirt, and passionately arguing about why a certain movie was secretly great or secretly terrible. When not at school for a debate meeting or theatre rehearsal, he likes reading, napping, and going to Target for no particular reason. This is his second year on The Red Ledger staff, and he hopes to continue writing entertainment reviews.
