I’m a political theorist and 3rd-year PhD student in the Department of Political Science at the University of California, Irvine. Before that, I received a BA in Political Science from North Carolina State University

My research interests are in the political theories of culture, aesthetics, and media, and how we can use these theories as tools to help us understand the American far right. I also have side interests in critical pedagogy.

Papers (email for drafts)

  • Fight Club and the Appeal to the White Masculine Imagination
  • A Typology of the Alt-Verse: Aesthetic Distinctions in the New White Nationalism
  • Critical Pedagogy in Practice: Using a “Teaching Tolerance” Learning Plan in the Political Science Classroom
