I recently completed my Ph.D. in Film and Media Studies at the University of Kansas. My research on fan edits and film revisionism has been published in Transformative Works and Cultures, and I have written chapters for books such as Fan Phenomena: The Lord of the Rings (Intellect, 2015), Fan Phenomena: James Bond (Intellect, 2015), and Keywords in Remix Studies (Routledge, 2018). I also hold an M.A. in Communication Studies from Northern Illinois University, and a B.F.A. in Film and Television Production from New York University–Tisch School of the Arts.
I’m also a fan editor. My first project, Watchmen: Midnight, is an extensive revision of Watchmen (2009) that reshapes the film adaptation to more closely resemble the narrative structure, characterizations, and tone of the original comic book series by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. Watchmen: Midnight was awarded “Fanedit of the Month” by the members of FanEdit.org, and versions of the project have screened at fan conventions and academic events in the United States, Germany, and the Netherlands.
