I write on cinema and I write creatively.

This is my most recent major publication. You can read more about it here. As of November 2018 it has been downloaded online 928 times.

On this website you can find a full list of my publications with links to journal archives and author versions of book chapters.

In this collection my chapter will explore my conception of the ‘crystal-song’ in recent Hollywood films.
