ABOUT

I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Government at Harvard University where I am studying American politics, with a focus in political psychology, political geography, and the politics of disruptive change. Prior to graduate school, I graduated from Harvard with a B.A. in Government. 

I am also a published author and write fiction for both children and adults. I wrote my middle-grade fantasy series, THE REIGN OF THE ELEMENTS, when I was fifteen and sixteen years old. All five books were published between 2010 to 2012.

In addition to my writing, I am also a photographer. My selected works can be found in the menu to the left.
