I’m a political theorist and 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 theories of culture, aesthetics, and media, and how we can use these theories as tools to help us understand sociopolitical phenomena. I also have side interests in critical pedagogy.
