I am a Lecturer in Film and Media Studies at Washington University in St. Louis, and I received my PhD  in Cinema and Media Studies from UCLA in June 2019. I am the co-editor of the anthology The Franchise Era: Managing Media in the Digital Economy (Oxford/Edinburgh University Press, 2019). My publications have appeared in Mediascape (2012, 2015), the South Atlantic Review (2015), and the edited collections James Bond and Popular Culture: Essays on the Influence of the Fictional Superspy (McFarland, 2014) and Content Wars: Tech Empires vs. Media Empires (Rutgers University Press, forthcoming). My doctoral dissertation (titled “Space Invaders: Warner Bros. and the History of Hollywood in the Video Game Industry”) analyzes the history of video game development and licensing at Warner Bros.
