Throughout my academic and professional careers, I have developed a seemingly divergent range of experiences, skills, and knowledge. Though these make it difficult to pinpoint my career trajectory - it also allows me to always offer conceptually unique perspectives.
During my MA in Media Arts I was primarily concerned with the subjects of algorithmic culture, digital preservation, game studies and design, and critical and speculative design.
Before this MA program I studied an Honors degree in Film and Television Studies, with an undergrad in Visual Studies and Sociology.
