I graduated from Loyola Marymount University in 2015 with a BA in Screenwriting. Upon graduating, I conveniently came to the conclusion that I was no longer interested in pursuing film making as a career. Being aimless for a few years felt right(-ish) so I did--working as a substitute teacher a bit and waiting tables a lot. When I could, I left Los Angeles for varying lengths of time to check out other cities and countries around the world.
Now I'm in Texas and look forward to studying the intersection of the globalization of media industries and queer representation in popular culture. I hope this leads me to some sort of understanding about how media consumption influences the construction of queer identities globally.
