I’m a videomaker and creative practice PhD candidate engaged in collective and fluid meaning-making through direct and amateur abstraction of networked cinema genres, tropes and affect in relation to identity and affinity. Currently, I am a casual academic in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Technology, Sydney and Macquarie University.
