Rachel Buchman is an avid "Downton Abbey" and Masterpiece Theatre fan who is excited to join GPB’s “Desperate for Downton” blog. An eager fan of all things British, she began watching the first season of Downton Abbey in 2012 and hasn’t looked back. A degree in English Literature from The University of Chicago and a love for fandom adds to her unique perspective. Besides Masterpiece, Rachel is a fitness enthusiast, fashionista, and costumer in her free time, and you’ll often catch her in costume at local Atlanta conventions such as DragonCon, Anime Weekend Atlanta, and MomoCon. Look for her new style blog debuting in early 2015 combining fashion and fandom, "Geek and Chic Plus". She lives in Atlanta.
