His first book, Hollywood Riots: Violent Crowds and Progressive Politics in American Film, won the 2016 Peter Rollins Prize. He’s currently finishing what he hopes will become his third book, which he refers to as either an “anti-memoir about his obsessive cinephilia” or a “Sebaldian rumination on the relationship between art, genealogy, and identity formation.” He’s also published cinema studies scholarship, film criticism for “The Notebook” at, and literary essays for journals like Chicago Quarterly Review and Hotel Amerika. He has a Ph.D. in Cinema Studies from New York University and teaches there now in the Expository Writing Program.
