Bio

I am a Lecturer in the Film and Media Studies Program at Washington University in St. Louis, and I received my PhD in Cinema and Media Studies at UCLA in 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), Content Wars: Tech Empires vs. Media Empires (University of California Press, forthcoming), Comics | Games: From Hybrid Medialities to Transmedia Expansions (Routledge, forthcoming), and Film Reboots (Edinburgh 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.
