I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Communication, Media and Theatre at Northeastern Illinois University.

I teach courses in film history and theory, television studies, new media technologies, gender and sexuality, and critical/cultural theory.

My research agenda is at the intersection of popular media, political activism, and public service. In particular, I study the history of HBO’s engagement with the AIDS epidemic.

My work has appeared in the Journal of Cinema and Media Studies, Communication and Critical/Cultural StudiesNebula, and FlowTV. I have also contributed book chapters to several edited collections, and I am currently working on a book project focused on HBO’s HIV/AIDS programming

Before earning my Ph.D. in Communication, Rhetoric, & Digital Media at North Carolina State University, I earned an M.A. in Film Studies from the University of Iowa and a B.A. in Drama & Communication from the University of New Orleans.
