I am a Film and Screen Studies master's student at the University of Cambridge, King's College. You can often find me wandering around the cobblestones and canals with a camera or curled up in the graduate suite watching international films, reading fascinating scripts, or writing my own.
I hold a BA in Global Studies and Creative Writing from Carnegie Mellon University, with minors in Film and Animation. In my studies, I focus on film historiography and cross-cultural entertainment.
As an avid fan of history, I am constantly fascinated by how historical narratives are adapted, translated, and transmitted in modern entertainment forms.
My studies have spanned the globe and the centuries, from late-antiquity Greece and Al-Andalusian Iberia, to post-soviet Romania and contemporary Norway. I am often available for random historical factoids and always eager to learn more. Currently, I am exploring how the late-medieval ideal of courtly love is adapted in contemporary period films.
Whether I am swapping tales over cups of tea with friends, or weaving sagas through my keyboard all alone, there is nothing I adore more than telling and consuming stories.
Narratives are the way we make sense of the world and sense of ourselves. This portfolio is only a little glimpse of my story, but I'm thankful that you've stopped by, and if you'd allow,
I would love to learn yours.
