I am a civil litigator practicing in Massachusetts. I currently work on cases involving health-care fraud, but my main interests are family law, constitutional law, and legal theory.


Independent Scholar

I will be presenting a paper on gender performance in J. J. Abram's "Star Trek: Into Darkness" at this year's conference of the American Culture Association. If you're interested in seeing me speak, details are here. My panel is on Saturday, April 19 at 9:45 AM.

I am also working on a book of  essays about American popular culture.



Cultural Critic

My writing focuses on how the rhetoric of objectivity insulates social power structures from democratic criticism. I explore this theme in philosophy, film, TV, literature, and American popular culture. Versions of my essays have appeared in Salon.

Together with other talented writers, I will be launching a blog about TV called Serialism.
