I am a rising Masters of Research (M.Res) English Literature candidate at the University of Glasgow, incoming MFA Writing candidate at Sarah Lawrence College in New York, and recent Honors Program graduate of the B.A. Studio Art program at Albertus Magnus College in New Haven, Connecticut (2015). I am a photographer and writer based in London.
At Glasgow University, I served as Writer and Photographer to the University’s student newspaper, The Glasgow Guardian, and stood as M.Res English Literature class representative. From the autumn of 2015 through 2016, I served as an English, Writing, and Creative Enrichment Tutor for the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, a Native American Reservation in Brooks, California. During my undergraduate career, I worked as a Writing Associate (W.A. / Tutor) in the Albertus Magnus College Writing Center, and on the Editing and Selection Committee for the school’s annual literary magazine publication, Breakwater, in 2014 and 2015.
My academic research interests lie at the crossroads of Victorian literature and culture, notably, considerations of Sheridan Le Fanu’s late fiction in historic context, and the evolution of photography, photojournalism, and journalistic prose during the period with particular interest in women’s roles in this context. My artistic interests are best expressed through photoessay which aims to blur the intersections between photography and writing, paralleling a wont to unify reader with visual narrative. In the coming year, I look forward to pursuing further professional and academic opportunity in the hope of contributing to the betterment of our world by promoting the unified value of writing, art, and literacy.
