I am also a PhD Candidate in the School for Cultural Analysis at the University of Amsterdam. My project centers on experimental cinema, archival practice, and videographic criticism. As the host of The Video Essay Podcast, and a curator and creator of video essays, I have been invited to lecture and teach at universities, conferences, and festivals throughout the United States and Europe. I am an associate editor of the journal Screenworks and an adjunct instructor in the Interdepartmental Program in Film Studies at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
In addition to my scholarship, I also work as a freelance film critic and essayist. My work has appeared in a variety of publications, including Senses of Cinema, Millennium Film Journal, Paste, Film School Rejects, and Cineaste, a magazine for which I serve as an assistant editor. I am a voting member of GALECA, an alumnus of Berlinale Talents, and have a newsletter, Notes on Videographic Criticism.
I hold a master's degree from the University of Cambridge, where I studied as a Keasbey Scholar. I earned a BA from Middlebury College, where I served as editor in chief of the student newspaper. I worked as a reporter throughout the state of Vermont, including at the Burlington Free Press and The Addison Independent, and had additional pieces published by USA Today and the Washington Post.
