My research interests revolve around how media technologies impact radical subcultures and social movements, as well as exploring the socio-cultural impacts of surveillance, corporate social media, and the proliferation of online harassment campaigns.
In addition to my scholarly interests, I am also passionate about non-fiction multi-media production, and digital media art. I have worked as a videographer and video editor on various socio-political topics, ranging from covering the 2022 protests in Peru to the indigenous movements fighting against pipeline construction in western Canada. I have also worked with various grassroots and non-profit organizations as well as independent musicians and artists, where I’ve created promotional materials like videos, graphic designs, motion graphics, animated logos, album art, and event flyers.
I received my Bachelor of Arts at Mount Holyoke College in Film Studies and my Masters of Fine Arts in the Film, Video, New Media & Animation department at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I have taught at the University of North Carolina Asheville, Winston Salem State University, and Rainbow Community School. I have spoken on panels, presented workshops, screened films, and participated in art exhibitions in various places across the globe, including Montreal, Paris, Chicago, and New York City.
