I am a writer and film critic living in Melbourne, Australia. I have a PhD in Women’s Studies and my feminist cultural studies research focused on anxiety about white, heterosexual masculinity in the films of the Clinton (Bill) era. Since then, I have been published widely, in both academic collections, and more recently in a variety of film focused publications, including Senses of Cinema, ACMI, SBS Movies, The Big Issue, Fandor, The Age, Kill Your Darlings, The Seventh Row, Real Time Arts, and Bright Wall Dark Room. I write reviews and features, but my preference is for longer form criticism. My current research interests include Terence Davies, the aesthetics of desire and the pleasure of looking in the films of Luca Guadagnino, the dynamics of screen attraction, and queer romantic drama.
