MFA1 @ CalArts in Creative Writing and Film Directing.
I graduated from Agnes Scott College with a BA in English Literature-Creative Writing and Political Science, and from Boston University with a MS in Television-Producing and Writing. I study film and TV, primarily through political science, IR and queer lenses. I am currently working on a project interrogating the #girlboss phenomena and its influence on television, utilizing feminist theory. I have written papers on presidential politics and their representation in media, the politics of reconciliation in science fiction series, and representation of the Troubles in Star Trek: The Next Generation.
