Biography


I completed my bachelor's degree in Psychology at California State University, Fullerton, and my master's degree in American Studies at the same university. My research interests include representations of violence (in literature, film, photography, video games), gender and sexuality, surveillance, cultural memory, affect, and digital culture. When I am not doing academic work, I enjoy reading without a highlighter, playing video games, walking (to any place or nowhere at all), and drawing. I collect toys of various sorts (vinyl, action figures, antiques) and I have 3 dogs (a pit bull, Queensland heeler, dachshund) and a deaf cat. I also enjoy re-watching the same movies over and over again.
