I am interested in the intersections of multiple identities, in particular gender and racial identities. Currently, I am investigating racial identity and racial ideology in college Millennials. The sociological is only one small slice of my whole self: I am also an artist and musician, a dog lover, world traveller, CrossFitter, the head chef of my own personal restaurant Mi Cucina, and champion Scattergories player.
