• i'm still working on my book (a nonfiction history of fandom culture, coming at some point from Norton)
  • i am freelance writing for publications including The Verge, Polygon, and Business Insider
  • i'm considering applying to PhDs but people should really tell me that's a bad idea
  • i have a substack - subscribe to tchotchke to get essays, stories, and random columns in your inbox on some fridays (but not others)

in 2023 i presented original research on fandom monetization on a roundtable on fandom polarization at AOIR in philadelphia

in 2022 i presented polar history research at the HSS conference in chicago, and created and presented a polar history project as an NYU digital humanities summer fellow.

in 2021 i presented academic work in fan studies at the ELO & FSN-NA conferences.

In the past
