I received my PhD in English from Loyola University Chicago with a dissertation entitled "The Trauma Thesis" that examines the representation of psychological trauma in war narratives

Presently, I am the Managing Editor for a search engine optimization firm, where I lead a team of 24 creative minds to produce thought leadership for our clients.
