I am a recently-graduated postgraduate research student (MPhil) in American History at the University of Cambridge, where I studied political culture with a transnational perspective in the American Early Republic. When not working on my dissertation, I rowed as part of the Sidney Sussex College Boat Club and took part in the weekly Cambridge American History Seminar.
Previously, I studied British imperial and French revolutionary history at the University of Florida, where I was the Bridget Phillips scholar for 2016-2017 and a member of the History Honors Program. My undergraduate dissertation focused upon constitutional and imperial issues surrounding the British East India Company’s governance of Bengal at the end of the eighteenth century.
During my preceding time at Indian River State College, I was a Fine Arts Scholar while majoring in history and serving as director of the Youth Performing Arts Academy. I further took part in scholarship recruitment efforts and managed touring productions on behalf of the Performing and Visual Arts Department.
Simultaneous to my academic career, I am a professional theatrical actor and director with more than two decades of performance experience. I am a proud member of the Actors’ Equity Association and am eligible for membership in SAG-AFTRA. My acting credits further include radio, national television, independent films, and industrials.
