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 (Edinburgh University Press, 2019). My work has 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), Film Reboots (Edinburgh University Press, 2020), Comics | Games: From Hybrid Medialities to Transmedia Expansions (Routledge, 2021), and Content Wars: Tech Empires vs. Media Empires (University of California Press, forthcoming). I am currently writing a monograph about the history of Hollywood studios in the video game industry.
