Biography

I study (dis)ability in enslaved Atlantic African diaspora populations in the Early Modern period. Using digital humanities tools and disability studies theory, I will tell the story of enslaved Africans and Afro-Americans in a compelling and impactful way. My other interests include playing guitar, singing, creative writing, video and board games, and boxing.
