I began teaching in the Media and Screen Studies program at Northeastern University after completing my Ph.D. work in Moving Image Studies through the Department of Communication at Georgia State University. Broadly, my research examines new media, film, and other artifacts that lend to various visions, versions and manifestations of bodies. My inquiries about bodies employ various methodologies and theoretical frameworks, placing emphasis on queer theory, critical/cultural theory, visual culture studies and phenomenology.
I am originally from Utah, where I graduated from the University of Utah in Gender Studies. I then studied at Northern Illinois University, where I finished my MA in Communication. Now I find myself living in Boston. I love school, I love learning, I love teaching, and my journey thus far merely points to the fact that I’m a masochist. On any given day you might find me sitting and writing at a coffee shop, playing video games, cooking (or watching the Food Network), or sitting at home playing with a random technological object.
