I am a writer, front-end developer, and graphic designer based in Washington, DC. My work is interdisciplinary, combining digital art with literary and cultural criticsm. I often write about and/or teach on subjects relating to aesthetics, nineteenth-century optical devices, photography, tourism, archaeology, exploration, the digital humanities and wherever else my curiosity leads.

I hold a Ph.D. in English from The George Washington University in Washington, DC. My dissertation explores the interstices of tourism, travel literature, and visual culture, from the mid-nineteenth century to the First World War. I'm currently working on a collection of essays on the aesthetics of imagination.

You can learn more about my research and writing by visiting Publications.
