Always thinking about how cultural meaning-making and knowledge-production go hand-in-hand.
I completed my Ph.D. in Communication and Science Studies at UCSD in May 2013. My dissertation, War, Trauma, and Technologies of the Self: The Making of Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy, is a biography of a virtual reality system called Virtual Iraq/Afghanistan which was designed to aid therapists in making their war veteran patients re-experience their traumatic experiences in order to overcome them.
I am also a freelance writer, editor, and comics creator, a homebody and an adventurer.
I care a lot about people and things.
