I am a PhD student in Screen Cultures at Northwestern University in the Department of Radio/TV/Film. My research interests include Marxist cultural theory, visual cultures of affective attachments to property and place in 20th and 21st century American culture, and queer theory. Before I came to Northwestern I studied at the University of Cambridge and Colby College.

My photography is mostly preoccupied with architecture and domesticity, nostalgia, comfort, meeting places of the environment and the human-built world, and postal services and mail. All photos are film, my favorites being Portra 400 and JCH StreetPan 400.
