PhD candidate in the department of Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University.

My research, bridging environmental media studies, philosophy, and political geography, addresses mountains as politicized media environments, and as media technologies themselves. In my work, I map the political, environmental, and ideological dimensions of the expansion and use of media infrastructures in mountain regions. My dissertation work is grounded in the Northern Rockies.

I also work as a trekking guide and consult on the full range of issues related to planning, preparing for, carrying out, and returning from long-distance solo and group expeditions on foot. I view my classroom and outdoor teaching as deeply interconnected, and bring my theoretical training to bear in how I approach the outdoors, just as nights spent beneath the stars inform my practice at the blackboard.
