I am a doctoral candidate at the department of Media, Culture, and Communication at NYU.
My research is on the past and present of social media. My dissertation project is titled: Locating the User in American Social Media: A History of the Networked Present.
My next project is on the history of independent gaming in the 1970s, and on a format of game I call the 'Type-In.'
I am also one third of a show called MemeFactory.
