I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Performing and Media Arts where I study the impact of racial representation at the levels of industrial practices such as casting as well as the implications of employment for creative professionals both in front and behind the camera. I hold a doctorate from the University of Texas at Austin's department of Radio-TV-Film; a masters from the University of Arizona's department of Media Arts; and a Bachelor's from Louisiana State University in Journalism. Prior to joining the faculty of PMA in January 2023, I served on the faculty at the University of Alabama. I have consulted with media companies to help them strategize their plans and continue to discuss issues of representation and industry logics with popular press outlets such as The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Tribune, NBC Nightly News, and NPR.
