Who I Am

Trained as a Cultural and Linguistic Anthropologist, I am an Interdisciplinary Scholar. In my writing, classrooms, and public lectures, I explore the connections between popular culture and critical theories of race, gender, class, and sexuality. 

I work along the edges of academia, making contemporary critical theory accessible. I bring what folks do in Ivory Towers down-to-earth, putting complex ideas in common sense, everyday language anyone can understand and specialize in using popular culture as an entry point for discussing theoretical concepts.
