a bit about me:

I am a teaching professor in the Professional Communication program at Florida State University- Panama City specializing in media studies. I received my B.A. in Motion Picture History, Theory, and Criticism as well as my master’s degree with emphases in Philosophy and Women’s Studies from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. My primary area of research interest involves the representation of marginalized identities in contemporary film and their corresponding multimedia paratexts using political economy of media, critical textual analysis, and audience reception. My dissertation was titled, “Interpretations and Receptions of Alternative Subjectivities in the Disney-Produced Star Wars films.”
